Head And Shoulders: ACC Nation Soccer

Head
ACC Nation Staff @accnation –

The ACC has powered up something unfamiliar in college soccer. Between both men’s and women’s teams the conference has owned the No. 1 spot in United Soccer Coaches’ Top 25 in seven of eight polls. When it comes to collegiate soccer the conference is head and shoulders above others.

With the exception of the preseason poll, Wake Forest has been the regular season No. 1 men’s team for three weeks. Florida State held the No. 1 spot in the preseason and week one polls. North Carolina took over at the top in weeks two and three. Now Virginia has risen to the top to claim the prized spot.

Wake Forest claims 26 First Place Votes (FPV) this week while Virginia logs in with 21.


Top 25 Football Polls


There must be something to Lucky 7 as the ACC has seven teams in both rankings. There are three men’s teams in the Receiving Votes category while on the women’s side there is one.
