2020-21 Men's Soccer Coaches' Top 25 – Poll 4 (April 14)

2020-21 Men's Soccer Coaches' Top 25 – Poll 4 (April 14)

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Central Methodist (Mo.) went wire to wire as the No. 1 team in the nation. The two-time defending NAIA national champions are 17-1 on the season and earned all 18 first-place votes. Oklahoma Wesleyan, Columbia (Mo.), Missouri Valley and Dalton State (Ga.) rounded out the top five this week.

 

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.”
