An upset-filled weekend of college soccer saw the top three ranked teams in the country lose at least once. No. 2 Washington won 1-0 over San Diego St. on Friday, but then fell 2-1 to No. 9 UCLA in the Pac-12’s biggest match of the weekend.

The biggest shock of the weekend came in Berkeley, Calif. where San Diego improved to just 4-6-4 with a 1-0 victory over top-ranked California. The loss was the first of the season for the Golden Bears. No. 3 Notre Dame was also given its first loss of the season at home 2-0 by Virginia.

A sellout crowd of 11,075 in San Luis Obispo, Calif. watched Cal Poly hold on for a 1-1 draw against the rival Gauchos of UC-Santa Barbara. The sellout was good for the 10th-largest regular season crowd  in NCAA history.

No. 5 Georgetown, the top team in the Big East, went on the road to No. 21 Marquette and won 1-0 to cement the Hoyas’ place at the top of the conference.

Coastal Carolina rolled to the team’s 10th straight win on Friday. One of the most prolific offenses in the country, Cal State Northridge, was held scoreless on Saturday in an upset loss to UC-Irvine.
