KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Aug. 31, 2021) — United Soccer Coaches released the updated NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Rankings, sponsored by Verizon, on Tuesday. This week is the first set of rankings released simultaneously, based on the results of the past week, and the first for the men since the pre-season poll.

The biggest movement is on the men’s side, with Indiana taking over the top spot after defending national champions, Marshall, dropped a close game to #15 Virginia Tech. Georgetown, Pittsburgh, Clemson and the University of Washington round out the top five with unblemished records.

In women’s soccer, the top five remains unchanged, led by Florida State at 3-0-0. UNC and UVA both improve to 4-0-0, while defending champions Santa Clara dropped to 9th with their second draw of the season.
