An up and down week of ACC still has the Deacs and Heels on top of the latest United Soccer Coaches Polls. Wake Forest tops off the men’s side at No. 1 with 24 First Place Votes (FPV) while North Carolina is No. 1 in the women’s poll with 29 First Place Votes. For the most part all is well in men’s ACC soccer while two women’s teams in the conference took a dive in the rankings.
Six men’s teams are among the top 15 collegiate soccer teams in the U.S. this week with the aforementioned Demon Deacons sitting in the top position. Duke follows at No. 2 and also grabs two First Place Votes.
Four women’s teams from the ACC are in the top 15 of the poll with the Tar Heels owning the top slot. Virginia, Florida State (a former No. 1 and last year’s NCAA title holder) and Duke round out the teams at the top.
