Men's Soccer No. 4 in Midwest
Oct. 3, 2007
MEMPHIS, Tenn. - The National Soccer Coaches Association of America's (NSCAA) October 2 poll ranks the Tigers fourth best in the Midwest region. Coming off a 5-0 win against Centenary on Saturday, Memphis (5-1-2) will take on two of the teams ranked higher in the region.
The Tigers will travel to Tulsa, Okla., to face the Golden Hurricane on Friday before returning to Mike Rose to host Creighton on Sunday. Both teams are in the top-20 nationally. Tulsa sits squarely at No. 20 in Tuesday's poll, while the Bluejays are the No. 10 team in the country.
Tulsa awaits the Tigers after drawing a 2-2 tie against No. 1 SMU at home. The Golden Hurricane owns a 5-2-1 record on the season, including a 3-1 defeat of then-No. 7 Creighton. The Tulsa match kicks off at 7 p.m. Friday, and Sunday's home match against Creighton will get underway at 1 p.m. Sunday is Faith & Family Day at Mike Rose, so all community groups receive free admission with submitted roster, and the first 300 fans will receive a men's team photo.
