Penn State Women’s Soccer Jumps To No. 4 In Latest National Poll
Penn State women’s soccer kept the ball rolling last week and was rewarded with a No. 4 ranking in the latest United Soccer Coaches poll.
Penn State dispatched Indiana 3-1 at Jeffrey Field Sunday to win its Regional Weekend pod. The result means that the Nittany Lions will host the remainder of the Big Ten postseason, beginning with a Thursday semifinal against Iowa.
The Nittany Lions join Florida State, UNC, UCLA, and West Virginia in the nation’s top five. No. 22 Rutgers was the only other Big Ten team in the top 25, although Wisconsin (26) and Ohio State (17) both received votes.
Despite being a consistent member of the top 10 in the United Soccer Coaches poll, the folks at TopDrawerSoccer.com feel differently. That ranking places the Nittany Lions at No. 12, setting up an interesting discussion for the selection committee on April 19, when the official NCAA Tournament bracket is revealed.
Before then, the Nittany Lions will play to qualify for the conference championship. Jeffrey Field will be the host to both semifinals, starting with Wisconsin-Rutgers (7:30 p.m., BTN) and concluding with the Nittany Lions and Iowa (5 p.m., BTN).
