[RANKINGS] Louisville, last year's Men's College Cup runner-up, is No. 1 in the Soccer America Men's Preseason Top 25 rankings, as selected by its editors.

UCLA, which returns all 11 starters, and North Carolina under promoted head coach Carlos Somoano are ranked 2-3.

Defending champion Akron, which lost seven players to MLS clubs but welcomes a huge recruiting class, begins the season at No. 4.

Six ACC teams are ranked in the Top 25 -- five among the top 13 teams. Louisville and No. 5 Connecticut are among five Big East teams in the Top 25.
