KANSAS CITY, Mo. — There is a new women’s team atop as United Soccer Coaches released the penultimate Fall College Rankings.

Florida State, on the heels of its Atlantic Coast Conference tournament win, took over the top spot while Pittsburgh remained No. 1 in the men’s rankings.

The Seminoles completed their fall campaign at 11-0-0 after defeating North Carolina, 3-2, to claim the ACC title. The Tar Heels dropped to No. 2 after the loss. TCU and West Virginia remained in the third and fourth spots, respectively, while Duke climbed back into the top five at No. 5.

The Panthers are No. 1 in the men’s poll for the fifth consecutive week ahead of their ACC Tournament semifinal game this week. Clemson moved up two spots to second place, while Wake Forest dropped one spot to No. 3, as did North Carolina to No. 4. Coastal Carolina captured the Sun Belt Conference Tournament title and moved into the top five for the first time.

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.
