DALLAS (SMU) - The SMU men's soccer team is ranked No. 17 in this week's NSCAA National Rankings and is tops in the Midwest Region. The Mustangs are also ranked No. 13 in the country by Soccer America and No. 22 by Top Drawer Soccer.

SMU is 8-2-2 on the season, holds a 4-0 mark in Conference USA action and is currently riding a nine-game unbeaten streak (8-0-1).
