Pitt Ranked Number One for First Time in Program History

10/20/2020 12:31:00 PM

PITTSBURGH – The Pitt men’s soccer team earned a milestone ranking Tuesday, claiming the No. 1 spot in the United Soccer Coaches Poll for the first time in program history.

Tuesday marks the first time a Panther program has ascended to No. 1 in a major poll since February 23, 2009, when men’s basketball held the top spot in the AP Poll and USA Today Coaches Poll.

Men’s soccer joins men’s basketball and football as the only Pitt teams to be ranked No. 1 in the country.

The Panthers began the season ranked fourth in the country on Sept. 22. After defeating No. 5 Notre Dame 3-1 on the road, Pitt climbed to No. 2 in the Sept. 29 poll and held that spot for three weeks.

Last weekend, Pitt defeated No. 5 Virginia, 3-2, in overtime for its second top-five victory of the season. The victory in Charlottesville, Va., was the third win in a row at Klöckner Stadium, dating back to 2018.
