ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - The UCF women's soccer team received national attention on Tuesday by breaking into the top 10 of two major polls.

The Knights jumped three spots to No. 9 in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) and Continental Tire rankings and climbed six spots to No. 10 in the Soccer America rankings.

UCF picked up two victories on the road last weekend at USF and Florida Gulf Coast to open the season 2-0 for the first time since 2003. The Knights are the only Conference USA team ranked and are the second-highest program in the state of Florida ranked in both polls, second only to No. 3 Florida State.

The Knights have a jam-packed weekend approaching as they hold their home opener Friday against No. 3 Florida State at 7 p.m. before welcoming No. 12 Miami on Sunday at 1 p.m. Miami, who is 12th in the Soccer America poll, is receiving votes in the NSCAA rankings.

The first 250 students to attend Friday's game will receive tickets to the Missouri football game scheduled for Sept. 29.

Season tickets are available for UCF's 11 home games, beginning at $30. A complimentary soccer scarf comes with each purchase.

The Gold Pass, which includes season tickets to all volleyball, men's and women's soccer, women's basketball, softball and track and field contests, is also available now. For more information and to place an order, call the UCF Ticket Office at (407) UCF-1000 or visit UCFAthletics.com.
