Key Notes: Despite having his school record seven-game shutout streak stopped in a 2-1 win against Western New England, Purdy has led the Cardinals to an unbeaten 10-0-2 record, which will be on the line on Saturday when Wesleyan takes on No. 4 Amherst. Purdy has allowed just four goals on the year while making 46 saves.

Keep Your Eyes on This

Division I: No. 5 New Mexico will face its first ranked opponent in more than a month when it faces No. 22 Cal State Bakersfield on Sunday. Though ranked fifth in the coaches' poll, the Lobos were ninth in the season's first RPI poll due in some measure to an unimpressive early-season schedule. A win against the Roadrunners could help the unbeaten Lobos in their case for a top seed in the NCAA tournament.

Division II: Since falling to then No. 2 Rollins on Sept. 5, Coker has won 11 consecutive games vaulting itself into the top 25 for the first time two weeks ago. Currently seventh, the Cobras enter the weekend tied atop the Conference Carolinas standings with Lees-McRae, their opponent on Saturday.

Division III: Two of the remaining seven unbeatens meet on Saturday as No. 4 Amherst hosts No. 9 Wesleyan (Conn.). The scoring combo of Spencer Noon and Jae Heo have produced 16 goals for the Lord Jeffs this season. Their job will be made tough this weekend by the nation's top defense. The Cardinals  have allowed three goals all season.
