The state of Indiana has made its claim as perhaps the best in college soccer as it's home to No. 1 Notre Dame (6-1-0) and No. 2 Indiana (6-0-2). The Fighting Irish and Hoosiers are on a collision course – they'll meet Tuesday in Bloomington, Ind. – that will decide which team has supremacy in the state, if not the country. Last week saw Virignia Tech give Notre Dame its first loss of the season, as well as Saint Louis shut out No. 5 Stanford in two of the more notable results in college soccer.
Here are the best goal from Week 4.
DeJuan Jones – Michigan State
A rivalry game between two ranked opponents? Check. A game-winner in overtime that broke a scoreless tie? Check. Michigan State's game-winner against Michigan – with the Big Bear Trophy on the line – is as high stakes as soccer gets during the regular season.
Jon Gallagher – Notre Dame
The No. 1-ranked Fighting Irish won their sixth straight match by defeating Bowling Green 2-1. Jon Gallagher scored the game's first goal – his fifth of the year – after a beautiful setup from teammates Jack Casey and Blake Townes.

Timmy Mehl, Austin Panchot – Indiana
The Hoosiers blanked Rutgers 5-0 as four different Indiana players scored, including two who scored their first goal of the season. Timmy Mehl netted a 28-yard free kick and Austin Panchot scored on a well-timed left-footed, boucing volley.
Logan Pantchot – Stanford
Logan Pantcho scored the first career goal of his collegiate career and it proved to be the game-winner in Stanford's 3-1 win over Yale. He sent a blast into the far corner of the net from 20 yards out.
Alan Winn, Jelani Pieters – North Carolina
North Carolina redshirt sophomore forward Jelani Pieters is a familiar face in our weekly best goals of the week post. He scored his fifth goal of the season in overtime against Virginia after making a tremendous run through the Cavaliers' defense. The video below also features Alan Winn's equalizer, which came after he created space from a defender, setting up a left-footed shot.

Tate Schmitt – Louisville
Tate Schmitt put the Cardinals ahead in the 47th minute of Louisville's match against Boston College, sparking an offensive outburst. The team scored three goals in the span of nine minutes later in the half of their 4-0 victory.
Kosti Moni – Western Michigan
No. 12 Western Michigan (9-0-1) remains undefeated through 10 games, including a 1-0 win over No. 22 Michigan. Kosti Moni scored the game-winner on a flying volley in the 51st minute.
Connor Hubbard – Furman
Furman fell in double overtime to Gardner-Webb, 5-4, and one of the game's many goals was this finish from Connor Hubbard, which was set up by a great back-heel flick from a teammate.

Foster McCune – Georgetown
Georgetown came from behind to defeat Stony Brook 3-2 in overtime and Foster McCune kicked off the scoring for the Hoyas with this left-footed shot that snuck into the upper-90 of the goal.
