COLUMBUS, Ohio – While the Capital University men's soccer team had a light week in its schedule, the team was on the move in two different national rankings. In week three of this year's national rankings, Capital finds itself ranked No. 12 by the United Soccer Coaches and No. 14 by D3Soccer.com.

MOVING ON UP

The Crusaders entered the week ranked for the first time this season by two different polls. Capital played just one game last week, that against Denison University and ending in a scoreless draw. The tie pushed Cap's record to 3-0-1 overall.

The United Soccer Coaches moved from No. 13 up to No. 12 per Tuesday afternoon's announcement, leaping Franklin & Marshall College to get there.
