Farley went 180 minutes overall and added a game-winning goal in the win over Vanderbilt.

On the men’s side, Caleb Porter’s Akron program remains undefeated at 9-0-0 after beating Ohio State and Florida Atlantic by identical 3-0 scorelines. ACC powers Maryland and Wake Forest each take a small drop in the men’s ranking after surprise non-conference losses, but Wake’s Zach Schilawski earned Player of the Week honors for his hat trick in the Deacs’ bounceback win over Virginia Tech.
