NCAA Men’s and Women’s Soccer Rankings released for Week 8
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — There was little movement this week as the top teams remained unchanged in the latest United Soccer Coaches Fall College Rankings, released on Tuesday.
Pittsburgh is atop the men’s rankings again this week, while North Carolina continues to sit atop the women’s poll.
The Panthers completed their regular fall schedule at 5-0-0 and are No. 1 in the poll for the fourth straight week. Wake Forest was No. 2 for the fourth straight week as well. North Carolina moved up one spot into the third position with Clemson in fourth and Virginia Tech moved into the rankings for the first time this fall at No. 5.
The top five was unchanged on the women’s side, with the 9-0-0 Tar Heels atop the poll where they have been all fall. Florida State was second in the rankings for the eighth consecutive week with TCU, West Virginia, and Clemson rounding out the top five.
Due to the pandemic, only teams competing in the fall are considered for the fall rankings. The number of teams appearing in each ranking is also lower due to the lower number of teams competing. The men’s poll consists of a Top Five national ranking and the women’s poll features a Top 15. There are no regional rankings.
Complete rankings for both the men and women are below.
