Stanford got off to the best start in college soccer, taking down two top 25 opponents as TDS player of the week, Zach Bohane, led the way with three goals and an assist. First, he scored against No. 16 Creighton in a 3-1 victory, then added two more goals and an assist in a 5-1 defeat of No. 12 Georgetown. With Bohane and company playing as well as they did, it is hard to argue they are not the best team in college soccer so far.
