Tigers Rise to No. 13 in National Polls
Nov. 2, 2004
The University of Memphis Men's Soccer team received its highest ever national ranking, rising seven spots to No. 13 in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America's Top 25.
The Tigers (11-3-1, 7-1-0 C-USA) also received its highest ever regional ranking, surpassing Creighton for the No. 2 spot in the NSCAA Midwest Rankings behind SMU. Memphis had been in the three spot for the past three-straight weeks.
All four men's soccer national polls have Memphis in their rankings. In the Soccer Times' Top 25, Memphis gained five spots and is listed at No. 18. The Tigers rose one spot in Soccer America's Top 25 to No. 22. College Soccer News listed Memphis for the first time ever in its top 30 at No. 20.
The Tigers look to prove that the No. 13 isn't an unlucky number as they take on non-conference foe Belmont in their final home game of the regular season. Memphis is 7-1-0 all-time against the Bruins and has a six game winning streak against Belmont. Memphis has also won six straight games at home.
