For the second consecutive week, the United Soccer Coaches Division I men’s soccer top 25 features two Pittsburgh schools, Pitt and Duquesne.

The Panthers moved back a couple spots, from 8th to 10th, following Friday evening’s 2-1 loss at No. 15 Louisville.  The Panthers (5-2-1 overall, 2-1-0 in ACC) are the highest ranked team with two losses.

Pitt returns to action on Friday when they host University of Virginia (6-3, 2-1 in ACC) at Ambrose Urbanic Field.  Look for coverage from PSN’s Dom Campbell on Friday night.

Meanwhile, the Dukes move up a spot, as they remain without a loss, following a 0-0 draw at UMass on Saturday. The 6-0-2 start is the best first eight-game stretch in program history.

The Dukes return to action to beef up their RPI and potentially look for a boost in national ranking when they face No. 25 Akron on Wednesday night.  Look for on-site coverage from PSN’s Zac Weiss in Ohio.
