Indiana soccer ranked No. 1 in the nation #iums

A dominating 0-0 draw at then-No. 5 Maryland and losses by each of the top three teams in last week’s poll pushed the Indiana men’s soccer team to the No. 1 ranking in the United Soccer Coaches’ Poll Tuesday.

It is the first time the Hoosiers have been No. 1 in the coaches’ poll since the 2013 preseason when Indiana was coming off the 2012 national championship.

“(The No. 1 ranking) is a nice honor only five games into the season,” IU coach Todd Yeagley told The Herald-Times. “Yet it’s a positive reflection on the work we have already completed. This group is highly motivated and hungry. They understand the opportunities in front of us.”

Immediately in front is a showdown at 7:30 Wednesday night with No. 18 Michigan (4-0-1) at Armstrong Stadium. Indiana (4-0-1) has shutouts in four of its first five games this season, including the draw with the Terrapins, who did not even record a shot on goal in the match.

  1. Nice! I posted yesterday for some Men’s Soccer reporting and…here it is! Thanks. Congratulations to the coaches and players for a “start” well done! I watched the match at MD and the Hoosiers dominated a very good MD team in a jam packed MD home pitch. But, alas, no ball in the net for a W.
