ATHENS, Ga. (AP) _ Unbeaten and top-seeded Stanford had little trouble with Minnesota in the first round of the NCAA Men's Tennis Championships Saturday, but two seeded teams ran into more than they could handle.

No. 5 Texas was upset by No. 10 UCLA 4-2 and No. 8 Illinois was upset by No. 20 Auburn 4-1 in the 16-team single-elimination tournament.

Stanford (25-0), which is trying to win its fourth consecutive national championship and 16th overall, stopped Minnesota 4-0. The Cardinal have lost only three individual matches all season and are 174-3 in the singles and doubles matches that make up an overall match.

In other first-round matches at the University of Georgia Tennis Center, Mississippi State beat South Carolina 4-0, Georgia defeated Harvard 4-0, Ole Miss downed California 4-1, SMU lost to LSU 4-0 and Pepperdine beat Southern Cal 4-1.

In Sunday's quarterfinals, Stanford plays UCLA, Auburn takes on Mississippi State, Georgia plays Pepperdine and Ole Miss plays LSU. The national semifinals are Monday and the championship match is Tuesday.
