The Washington State Cougars are ranked in both major polls for the first time this season.

WSU (7-1-2 overall, 2-1 Pac-12) debuted at No. 19 in the Soccer American Top 25 and moved to No. 21 in the NSCAA Top 25.

It marks the first time since 2011 that the Cougars were ranked in both polls during Pac-12 play.

“We are so happy to receive the national attention,” said Cougars coach Steve Nugent. “It reflects the hard work we have put in so far, but we know there is a lot of soccer left to be played this season.

“Our goal remains to be playing in December.”

Washington State will play its first home game since Aug. 31 when it entertains Arizona on Friday at 2 p.m. at the lower soccer field. It will be televised by the Pac-12 Network.
