In this week's National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NCSAA) poll, released today (Monday), the Spartans are ranked number one. San Jose State is 12-0-1 overall, 4-0-0 in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federaton Mountain Divison.
"It's been a long time coming," said Spartan head coach Gary St. Clair, noting that his team is the only team among NCAA Division 1 schools that has not lost a game this season. "I think that speaks volumes about the players in the program. The players are really excited and I'm very pleased for them."
San Jose State is currently riding a five-game winning streak since playing Stanford to a 1-1 tie on Sept. 26.
It is the first time since the 1969 season San Jose State has been ranked number one. In 1969, the Spartans were the top-ranked team in the National Soccer Coaches Rating Board poll.
It is the highest national ranking in the NSCAA poll since 1998, when the Spartans were ranked third.
This week's NSCAA ranking is listed below.
