⚽️Soccer: And then there were four. Behind Friday’s upset win over No. 1 Duke, defending women’s champs Santa Clara clinched their spot in the College Cup semifinals, with No. 1 Florida State, No. 1 Rutgers and No. 4 BYU rounding out the rest of the pitch field.

🏈Football: Former No. 2 Ohio State saw their College Football Playoff (CFP) hopes dashed after losing 42–27 to then–No. 5 Michigan on Saturday.

  • As for Michigan, not only did they win their first “The Game” matchup since 2011, they also jumped solidly into CFP contention. Bet they’re not feeling so Blue today.

🏀Basketball: After last week’s rout of No. 2 UCLA, people were wondering if anyone could beat men’s No. 1 Gonzaga...until No. 5 Duke defeated them 84–81 on Friday, the Zags’ first regular-season loss in 36 games. Damn.

  • As for the women: after snagging the No. 2 ranking last week, Maryland lost two games in a row, falling to No. 5 NC State on Thursday and No. 7 Stanford on Saturday. We live for the chaos.

🏐Volleyball: Okay, no upsets here (yet), but the 64-team women’s volleyball championship bracket is set and, surprise, surprise, undefeated Louisville grabbed the No. 1 seed. Single-elimination play begins on Thursday.
