MSU unranked for first time since 2006: Snafu costs Mustangs likely No. 1 ranking - MSU Website
WICHITA FALLS, Texas - A snafu associated with a payment of dues has cost Midwestern State an apparent No. 1 national ranking in the latest National Soccer Coaches' Association of America Division Poll which was released Tuesday afternoon.
The Mustangs, who remain the lone undefeated and untied team in NCAA Division II, spent the last two weeks at No. 2 and appeared destined for the top spot after last week's No. 1 Cal State-Los Angeles dropped consecutive matches to Cal Poly Pomona and Cal State-San Bernardino.
Instead, MSU will see its streak of consecutive reporting periods in the NSCAA Division II Poll end abruptly at 49. It marks the first time the Mustangs failed to achieve a national ranking since Sep. 26, 2006.
Colorado Mines jumps in into the top spot despite suffering a scoreless draw last week against No. 7 Metro State (Colo.) as a slew of upsets helped a group of 10 new teams in the rankings including Eastern New Mexico which entered the poll at No. 17.
The Mustangs will be eligible to return to the rankings next week.
