Final Friday (cs360 top-50 rundown; 10/29/10; w/ results)

Note: CollegeSoccer360 will be tracking Friday's extensive action throughout the day, via this blog page, the adjacent sidebar scoreboard and via Twitter feed (cs360updates).

With Division I women's soccer easing into conference tournament play, there's a significantly lower number of Friday games on tap for Oct. 29 – with 17 games on tap involving top-50 teams in the CS360 Composite National Rankings (22 total teams in action). Friday's five marquee matchups (top-50 head-to-head) include #8 Florida at #17 South Carolina to decide the SEC regular-season title (7 ET), and #7 Texas A&M and #28 Texas in a classic Big 12 rivalry game.

Several conferences have been finalizing their conference teams over the past few days – look for a comprehensive rundown from CS360 later tonight and on Saturday.

There were nine games on Thursday (Oct. 28) involving CS360 top-50 teams (13 teams in action; scores at bottom of this blog post).
