The Rice soccer team is ranked 10th in the Central Region in the latest poll from National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA). The regional ranking is the Owls' first since October of 2008.
Rice closed out its recent five-game homestand last Sunday (Oct. 3) with a 4-1 record, and each of the last four matches were crucial conference wins. The Owls must now go on the road for each of their next two C-USA games on Oct. 8 & 10. The Blue & Gray play at league foes Southern Miss on Friday, followed by national power UCF on Sunday. Start times for the games are set for 4 pm and noon, respectively (both game times listed are CENTRAL time).
