Maryland Terrapins No. 1 in men’s soccer poll

New Mexico received the most first-place votes in this week’s national men’s soccer coaches’ poll, but Maryland collected the most overall points to stake claim to the No. 1 position.

The Terrapins (13-1-2) moved up two slots after earning a 1-1 draw at then-No. 2 North Carolina, which had lost earlier in the week. Connecticut, the previous top team, settled for a loss and a draw last week. Maryland has two regular season matches remaining: Friday at Clemson and next Thursday at home against Wake Forest.

New Mexico (13-0-2) remained the only unbeaten side and is No. 2, followed by Creighton, North Carolina and Connecticut.

From the Washington region, Old Dominion (11-2-0) is eighth, Georgetown (9-3-4) is No. 19 and James Madison (11-2-1) 21st.

The complete top 25 is available here. Maryland is also first in the RPI, which weighs strength of schedule and factors into the NCAA tournament selections. James Madison is No. 6.

Unbeaten Stanford tops the women’s poll.
