The polls are now paying attention to how good this soccer team is. Currently the Red Raiders move up from #11 to #8 at College Sports Madness. The Raiders are ranked #7 at Top Drawer Soccer This is the highest rank ever for the Red Raider Soccer Team. The Red Raiders current conference record is 3-0-2 with an overall record of 13-1-2. The Red Raiders remain undefeated in the last 12 games.
The Big 12 road games are over with Tech being at home for the final 3 games. That is a huge advantage as Tech will face Kansas (0-2-1 B12) on Oct 25, #18/#6 WVU (5-0-0 B12) on Oct. 27, and ending the season with a match against Texas ( 4-1-0 B12). Hopefully the 10 day break will be used to focus on polishing up on the great fundamentals that the soccer team has.
I believe the biggest test comes from WVU. They are as scrappy as we are and will grind the game out. The top two scorers and the top two shooters on goal in the Big 12 are from WVU. I could go on and on about stats but you can view the Big 12 soccer stats here.
Bracketology from College Sports Madness still shows the Raiders to be the #3 seed in the tourney. If we finish strong, I believe Tech gets the home field advantage in rounds 1 and 2.
Have a great rest of the week. Suns Up Guns Up and Wreck Em.
