Creighton (Division I)

Key Notes: After transferring from Saint Louis, Brown started his first two games as a Bluejay last week and earned Missouri Valley Conference Defensive Player of the Week honors for helping Creighton finish out wins against Fordham and DePaul. With Brown on the backline, the Bluejays did not allow a goal in their first five games of the season.

Keep Your Eyes on This

Division I: UC Irvine is up to No. 5 in the rankings as it has received surprise performances from senior Christian Hernandez and sophomore Enrique Cardenas, who were primarily reserves in 2010. Each has scored five goals so far this fall, tying for fourth in the nation.

Division II: No. 1 Northern Kentucky has the best offense in the country this season by averaging more than five goals a game, yet it has no players among the top 30 scorers. The Norse have shared the wealth, with 12 different players scoring goals through four games.

Division III: For the third consecutive week, there is a new No. 1 team in the nation as Christopher Newport took over the top spot. The Captains reached the top spot for the third consecutive year and will look to hold on to it over the weekend in road games against Oneonta State and Vassar.
