KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Clemson University took over the top spot in the United Soccer Coaches men’s poll after winning the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament championship.

The Tigers joined Florida State, which won the women’s tournament championship two weeks ago as the top teams in the final fall rankings.

The college rankings will resume at a still to be determined date in the spring.

The Tigers took over the top spot behind a 2-1 win over previous No. 1 Pittsburgh in the conference tournament title game. Pitt dropped to No. 2 after the loss. Wake Forest remained third in the poll while Virginia Tech moved into the top five at No. 4. Sun Belt Conference champion Coastal Carolina was fifth for the second consecutive week.

The top five in the women’s poll was unchanged from a week ago with ACC tournament champion Florida State at No. 1 followed by North Carolina, TCU, West Virginia and Duke.

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.
