Best goals from Week 5 (Video)

  Jean-Chrostophe Koffi scored the game-winning goal for Virginia as time expired.

It was a dangerous week to be a ranked men's soccer team from the state of Michigan. Akron upset No. 4 Michigan State 4-1, Portland stunned No. 9 Western Michigan 4-1, and Oakland defeated No. 20 Michigan. That should lead to some significant changes in the next edition of the United Soccer Coaches poll.
