This year’s Green Bay squad is 5-0-2 after a season-opener 3-3 tie against Northwestern, followed by four straight wins, all on the road, against De Paul, Western Michigan, Pittsburgh and Robert Morris, and another win and a tie. The Phoenix is getting votes in both the Great Lakes Region rankings and the most recent College Soccer News Poll.
