Defending national champions, #2 in the preseason national polls – and #3 in the ACC. That’s where ACC coaches voted the Virginia men’s soccer team in their preseason voting.

North Carolina and Maryland were slotted at one and two. UNC is the last team to knock off the Cavs, 1-0 in double overtime back on Oct. 2, 2009.

Virginia enters the 2010 campaign on a 16-game unbeaten streak and returns 13 letterwinners and seven starters from the 2009 ACC and national champs.

UVa. opens regular-season play on Friday, Sept. 3, with an 8 p.m. match with Alabama-Birmingham.
