Three Ranked In United Soccer Coaches Top 25

September 10, 2019

Three Big 12 soccer programs were ranked in the latest United Soccer Coaches (USC) Top 25 poll. TCU, Kansas and West Virginia all earned a spot on the national rankings, while Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Baylor and Oklahoma State each received votes.

TCU takes over as the league’s highest-ranked team, rising to No. 17 after a two-win weekend. The Horned Frogs have ridden a five-match win streak, the longest streak in the Conference, to a 5-1 overall record. TCU has earned back-to-back Big 12 Freshman of the Week honors, with Gracie Brian and Grace Collins each garnering their first-career weekly awards.

Kansas slipped to No. 18 after going 1-1 over the weekend, including a 1-0 defeat to DePaul and 2-1 victory over Purdue. The Jayhawks also boast a 5-1 record on the year and own one of the Conference’s two wins over a Top 25 ranked team.

West Virginia finds itself in the Top 25 for the fourth-consecutive week, the only Big 12 team that has been ranked in each installment of the USC poll. The Mountaineers climbed to No. 23 after they tied former No. 8 Penn State on Friday, Sept. 6 in their only action of the weekend. WVU sits at an even .500 clip, 2-2-1 overall, and will face No. 15 Georgetown on Sunday, Sept. 15 in the league’s only top-25 matchup of the upcoming weekend slate.

Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Baylor and Oklahoma State all received votes, making it the second-consecutive week that the Big 12 has seen seventy percent of its members ranked or receive votes.

Regular-season action continues on Thursday, Sept. 12 with five matches.
