The Next 25: Best NCAA men’s soccer programs of the past 5 years (26-50)

Last week, we shared the Best 25 NCAA men’s soccer programs of the past 5 years, according to average final position in the United Soccer Coaches Polls and Rating Percentage Index (RPI).

This week, we take a look at the programs ranked 26-50 in NCAA men’s college soccer over the past 5 years, based on their average position in the end-of-season rankings from 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.

In this group of “The Next 25”, quite a few programs have been on the rise over the past several seasons, and could be on their way to new heights in the years to come. Also featured in the 26-50 range are a handful of historic programs that may have missed the Top 25 due to one or more early upset losses in recent NCAA Tournaments.
