The NCAA season is now more than a month old and we're into the all-important conference schedule. Here's your bi-weekly college round-up featuring the best of FCD alumni from the last two weeks:

WATCH: Coleman scores vs ND

Jack Coleman - Junior Midfielder - Duke

The midfielder scored his first goal of the season in Duke's 3-1 loss to Notre Dame. A second-half cross sent in by Coleman went all the way through the box and found the back of the net. Duke sits at 4-4-4 on the season with the chance of an NCAA tournament berth if they pick up their play over the next few weeks. The Blue Devils host NC State on Friday.

Allie Tripp - Junior Defender - Arkansas

Tripp has started every game this year for the Razorbacks and she scored her first ever goal at Arkansas in their 2-1 loss to Ole Miss. Tripp's goal broke a scoreless tie in the 61st minute, but the Rebels came back to score the win. After a hot start, the Razorbacks have cooled off recently but still have a shot in the SEC.

Bobby Edet - Freshman Forward - Furman

Edet and Furman are one of the stories of the NCAA season as the Paladins are currently 9-1-2 with their only loss to Akron. The Paladins scored their biggest win of the season on Tuesday over highly-ranked Clemson with Edet assisting on the first goal and last Friday, Edet led Furman to a big 2-0 win over Davidson scoring two goals in less than one minute late in the first half! Edet leads Furman with six goals in 12 games this season.

Aaron Guillen - Sophomore Midfielder - Florida Gulf Coast

Guillen, who we featured earlier in the summer, has exceled at the back for FGCU as the Eagles begin to turn their 2013 season around. After a rough start, the Eagles have won four in a row including three shutouts and the center back leads all players in minutes played this season.
