UPSETS ABOUND THIS WEEK –  With all of the conferences shifting into league play this week, there have been plenty of upsets already within the CS360 Top–50 (DI women). In fact, during 30 games on Thursday and Friday (Sept. 24–24), the higher-ranked Top–50 teams combined for barely a .500 win pct. (14–11–5; .550), considerably below the usual avg. that typically hovers around .700.

Leah Galton A300

 [12] Rutgers 1  
• at [27] South Florida 1, [20] Connecticut 0 

> Then, on Friday, higher-ranked teams managed only a slightly higher win pct. (10–7–3; .650):  
• at [47] Nebraska 1, [5] Penn State 1 
 [38] Missouri 3, at [17] Kentucky 1
