KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Oct. 27, 2020) — There was little movement atop the rankings as United Soccer Coaches announced the latest fall college rankings, sponsored by Verizon, on Tuesday. Pittsburgh is atop the men’s rankings again this week, while North Carolina continues to sit atop the women’s poll.
The Panthers are 5-0-0 on the season and No. 1 for the second straight week. The remainder of the men’s top five was the same as last week with Wake Forest at No. 2, Clemson in the No. 3 spot and Kentucky and North Carolina rounding out the top five.
On the women’s side, the Tar Heels are 7-0-0 and sit atop the poll where they have been all fall. Florida State is second in the rankings for the sixth straight week. Clemson is third for the second consecutive week while TCU and Duke swapped spots this week at No. 4 and No. 5, respectively.
Due to the pandemic, only teams competing in the fall are considered for the fall rankings. The number of teams appearing in each ranking is also lower due to the lower number of teams competing. The men’s poll consists of a Top Five national ranking and the women’s poll features a Top 15. There are no regional rankings.
Complete rankings for both the men and women are below.
