Looking at the bottom of this league is like staring into the abyss, so it’s perhaps a little pleasing to see a side like Utah Valley in the uncommon waters of the RPI Top 75 at this point of the season. UVU is a legit 5-3-2 also, with wins over Baylor and UNLV and a further draw with Boise State. They’ll still be underdogs to Seattle in the league though, who are perhaps suffering for a lack of quality wins, with the victory over Saint Mary’s (CA) the only one they have against a team in the RPI Top 300! The other somewhat decent team in the WAC right now is UMKC, who last beat Big East side Creighton, which likely explains much of their lofty ranking. The gap between #3 and #4 is enormous though. The bottom half of the league is the land of new coaches, new programs, and clubs stepping up from lower divisions, which could equal some ugly, ugly soccer in the next month and a half.
