Oct. 19, 2004
After an unbeaten week, the University of Memphis men's soccer team moved up in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America's National Top 25 rankings on Tuesday, rising three spots to No. 22.
The Tigers (9-3-1, 5-1-0 C-USA) have remained in the top 25 for three-straight weeks, longer than any previous U of M team. Memphis is one of three Conference USA teams in the NSCAA Top 25 with USF (7-1-2, 3-1-1) dropping to No. 11 after falling for the first time to Cincinnati and UAB (7-4-0, 4-1-0) dropping one spot to No. 25.
Memphis also remains at third for the third-straight week in the NSCAA Midwest Regional Poll behind No. 4 SMU and No. 7 Creighton. Saint Louis, who the Tigers host at the Mike Rose Soccer Complex on Saturday, comes in at fourth in the region behind the U of M. The Billikens are ranked as high as No. 20 in other national polls. Memphis is in a six-game losing streak against Saint Louis and is 3-15-1 all-time against SLU.
