CSN Top 30 Polls

College Soccer News - Top 30 National Poll - Week Ending September 9, 2018

Upsets are becoming the norm as teams have trouble putting together consecutive wins.  Wins away from home have been at a premium in the first three weeks of play.  The top of the poll remains relatively stable but beyond that significant movement occurs as seven new teams emerge to take a spot in the top thirty.  The early grind of tough non-conference competition and road trips is often hazardous to win-loss records but can benefit teams in the long run.
