Four NCAA women’s soccer teams remain perfect through the early weeks of the season, led by No. 1 UCLA.
The Bruins’ 6-0-0 record, unblemished by losses or even ties, includes 2-1 road wins against No. 3 Duke and No. 2 North Carolina – and the latter held the No. 1 ranking at the time.
Rutgers, Notre Dame and Harvard also have perfect records so far.
Harvard, ranked No. 16 in the country, will face a tough test this Saturday against No. 17 TCU.
No. 6 Notre Dame, meanwhile, will face off against No. 24 Clemson. The Irish have been consistent on offense so far this season, having won every game by at least two goals.
They also went undefeated in their non-conference schedule for the first time since 2008. That year, they made a run to the national championship game.
No. 4 Rutgers has tied its program record with an 8-0-0 start. The Scarlet Knights went undefeated in non-conference play, and they’ll look to become the first Rutgers team to win nine straight games with their Big Ten opener Sunday against No. 21 Ohio State.
Other top 25 teams who have yet to lose a game include No. 5 South Carolina, No. 7 Virginia, No. 9 Pepperdine, No. 12 Florida State, No. 15 Ole Miss, No. 19 SMU, No. 22 Washington and No. 23 Auburn — but all of them have played to at least one draw.
