Baylor Soccer Ranked No. 24 in NSCAA Poll

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Baylor soccer earned a No. 24 ranking in this week’s National Soccer Coaches Association of America top 25 poll that was released Tuesday.

The Bears (11-4-1, 4-1-1) have won three straight matches and are coming off a 2-1 win last Friday at home over TCU to give BU 11 wins for the fifth time in the last seven seasons and first time since 2013 (11-6-3).  The last time Baylor was in the NSCAA poll was a run from Aug. 23-Oct. 4, 2013, when BU was as high as No. 9 and as low as No. 20.

Baylor’s win over TCU last Friday gave the Bears their first three-game winning streak in Big 12 play since Oct. 25-Nov. 6, 2013 and put BU at the four-win plateau in league play for the second straight season and fifth time in the last seven seasons.

Undefeated in 24 of their last 30 matches, the Bears finish Big 12 regular season play at home this weekend with matches on Friday at 7 p.m. CT vs. Iowa State and Sunday at 1 p.m. vs. Kansas.
