NCAA Men’s and Women’s Soccer Rankings unveiled for Week 2
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — There were no changes at the top of the latest NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Soccer Rankings, as announced by United Soccer Coaches on Tuesday. Wake Forest is ranked No. 1 in the men’s poll, while North Carolina is atop the women’s ranking.
Behind the Demon Deacons, the top five of the men’s poll saw a slight shake up. Pittsburgh jumped up two spots to the No. 2 position while Clemson slipped one spot to No. 3. The Tigers will kick off their season this week. Kentucky jumped into the top five at No. 4 and Virginia, who will also open the season this weekend, dipped to No. 5.
On the women’s side, the Tar Heels continue atop the poll at 3-0, while Florida State (2-0) and Clemson (3-0) remain in second and third, respectively. Oklahoma State jumped up two spots to No. 4 thanks to a 3-0 mark and Texas A&M stayed put at No. 5.
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.
