10/28 Men's Soccer Bracketology Breakdown

Connecticut Men's College Soccer

Last Four In: UC Irvine, Elon, Delaware, Butler

First Four Out: Michigan, Charlotte, St. John’s, Cal Poly

It was a rough weekend for the remaining unbeaten teams. Coming into the weekend, three teams had yet to lose a game. On Friday California hosted San Diego in what seemed like an easy 11th win for the Golden Bears. Instead, San Diego pulled off a huge 1-0 upset. USD is still winless in conference play. Washington and Notre Dame lasted until Sunday. The Huskies had tied UCLA earlier in the week, but in Westwood they fell 2-1. Like California, the Irish also lost at home. However, they fell to a Virginia squad that has been playing great recently. Despite those losses, and thanks to losses by other teams, Cal, Washington and Notre Dame remain projected as the top three teams in the NCAA Tournament.
