Connecticut's loss was Maryland's gain.

After a slip-up to West Virginia, the UConn men's soccer team fell off its perch atop the NCAA RPI rankings, allowing Maryland to claim the top spot. Both teams sport 13-1-2 records, but Maryland is coming off of a tie at now-No. 10 North Carolina, while the Huskies lost at No. 31 West Virginia and followed that up with a home draw against No. 42 Georgetown to drop to the second spot.

A new name in the top 10 is James Madison (11-2-1), which comes in at No. 6, a spot ahead of fellow Colonial Athletic Association team Old Dominion (11-2-0). The two meet Wednesday night in a key battle between teams vying for the conference crown. 

The rest of the top 10 includes Creighton, UC Irvine and South Florida in spots 3-5, respectively, and New Mexico and St. John's at Nos. 8 and 9. Akron, which fell at Michigan a week ago, is down to No. 11.

What do you think of the latest RPI rankings? Surprised to see the CAA have two teams in the top 10?
