The favorites romped through the NCAA DI Tournament Round of 16, winning seven of the eight matches over Thanksgiving weekend.

Wake Forest continued to roll, with Carolina Dynamo forward Jon Bakero and GPS Portland Phoenix midfielder Emmanuel Twumasi powering the Demon Deacons to a 2-0 victory over Butler to book a spot in the quarterfinals. Similarly, San Francisco City FC forward Foster Langsdorf helped guide Stanford into the quarterfinals as the Cardinal continue to defend their back-to-back titles.
