Akron stays #1, Butler’s Hedges POTW

Published: September 27, 2010
An emphatic 4-0 win over previous #2 Tulsa punctuated the #1 status the Akron Zips continued to enjoy in our Men’s Tournament 48 National Ranking.

Caleb Porter’s Zips remained perfect after the win, with the team remaining unbeaten, untied and unscored upon. Observer will now have to contemplate just how good this team can be over the course of the season, as the squad will need to look to itself for motivation and challenges through the regular season, starting with a midweek game at Ohio State.

Only Wake Forest drops from the top 10 this week following a non-conference loss, with Michigan State moving up on the strength of a pair of weekend victories.
