Men's soccer rankings: Oregon State soars to No. 15, leads 4 new ranked teams in top 25

Marshall men's soccer coach Chris Grassie reflects on last season's Cinderella championship run

The Week 6 men's college soccer rankings are here, and Oregon State has jumped all the way to No. 15 in the United Soccer Coaches poll after previously being unranked. The Beavers beat two ranked teams to vault into the top 25.

The Beavers had an incredible week with two key victories to enable this jump, including overcoming a two-goal deficit to defeat former No. 23 UCLA, 4-3. The second ranked victory came from a win over previous No. 13 San Diego State, where Oregon State blanked the Aztecs 2-0. 

Oregon State is to 6-1-1 on the season and 2-0 in the Pac-12. The Beavers haven't lost since Sept. 6, going 3-0-1 since then.

Here's the full top 25:
