Friday Scoreboard (cs360 top-40 men & top-50 women; 10/7/11)

It's a relative light schedule today (Oct. 7) in terms of big-game matchups involving CS360 top-40 men's teams and the top-50 women, with many key head-to-head battles taking place over the previous two days. Friday's 11 games featuring  CS360 top-40 men's teams feature only one head-to-head game (#2 Maryland at #31 Virginia), while the 27 CS360 top-50 women's games on tap include only four marquee matchups – namely #2 UCLA putting its unbeaten record on the line at #19 California while the SEC divisional favorites will meet (#20 Auburn at #8 Florida) and unbeaten La Salle will play at #18 Dayton in a game that could determine the Atlantic-10 regular-season champion (the 10-0-1 Explorers have yet to allow a goal this season).

There are 19 top-50 women's teams not playing on Friday, with nine set to return to the pitch on Saturday (highlighted by #5 Wake Forest at #15 Maryland; #11 Florida State at #9 Virginia; and #14 Pepperdine at #44 BYU) and six more on Sunday. Four women's top-50 teams – #3 Duke, #6 Boston College, #7 North Carolina and #49 Portland – are done playing for the week. 

Most of the 28 top-40 men's teams that are not playing on Friday will be in action on Saturday (19 teams, including #12 Notre Dame at #1 UConn; #32 Northern Illinois at #3 Akron; #10 St. John's at #16 South Florida; and #15 Georgetown at #39 West Virginia) – while eight other idle top-40 men's teams will be back at it on Sunday (led by #5 Creighton at #9 Indiana). The #38 Cal State Fullerton men are done playing for the week.

As usual, CS360 will be tracking all 38 games on Friday, with info. posted on this blog page, the CS360updates Twitter feed and the CollegeSoccer360.com sidebar scoreboard.

There was an assortment of games scheduled earlier in the week involving the CS360 men's top-40 and women's top-50 (results for those games also included below). . . .
