2019 Men's Soccer Coaches' Top 25 – Poll 7 (Oct. 23)

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Central Methodist Eagles remain the No. 1 team in the 2019 Coaches’ Top 25. The No. 1-ranked Eagles went 2-0 on the week defeating two conference teams, Evangel (Mo.) and then-No.17 Baker (Kan.).

  • No. 1 Central Methodist received 17-of-18 first place votes, allowing No. 2 Columbia (Mo.) to receive one vote.
  • The Cougars of Columbia (Mo.) continued their undefeated streak of 14-0.

Poll Methodology

  • The poll was voted upon by a panel of head coaches representing each of the conferences, Association of Independent Institutions and Unaffiliated Groups.
  • The Top 25 is determined by a points system based on how each voter ranks the best teams. A team receives 30 points for each first-place vote, 29 for second-place and so on through the list.
  • The highest and lowest ranking for each team (a non-rating is considered a low rating) is removed and the team’s ranking will be recalculated with an additional point added to each team for every ballot (including discounted ballots) that the teams appear on.
  • Teams that receive only one point in the ballot are not considered “receiving votes.”
