The only undefeated, untied team in men's college soccer is the new No. 1.
Washington men's soccer is the top-ranked team in the latest United Soccer Coaches poll rankings, as the 12-0-0 Huskies moved into the top spot following Georgetown's shocking 3-0 loss to Providence last Wednesday. The Friars moved up only four spots to No. 16, however, as they lost to Butler on Saturday.
The Huskies picked up 15 of the 24 first-place votes — one of four teams to earn a top ranking. No. 2 Georgetown, No. 3 Marshall and No. 4 Kentucky were the others.
Georgetown had been No. 1 in six consecutive polls, taking over No. 1 in the Sept. 7 poll. Washington's climb to No. 1 started from No. 9 in the preseason. The Huskies had an even more dramatic rise almost exactly two years ago. In 2019, Washington went from unranked in the preseason to No. 1 in the Oct. 22, 2019 poll.
Though Washington is the only undefeated and untied team, New Hampshire, Kentucky and Saint Louis also remain without a loss.

Also in the top 10, Clemson was another notable riser. The Tigers went from No. 23 up to No. 6, as Luis Felipe Fernandez-Salvador's game-winning OT goal topped then-No. 9 Duke, 3-2.
There are three newly ranked teams in the latest poll. Hofstra is No. 19, Notre Dame is 20th and UCLA is No. 22.
