Sept. 11, 2007
Tulsa, Okla. - The University of Tulsa men's soccer team moved into the NSCAA/adidas National Rankings at the No. 23 slot after receiving votes last week. Tulsa is also ranked at No. 25 in the Soccer Times, No. 31 by Top Drawer Soccer and is receiving votes in the College Soccer News Top-30 National Poll.
