The North Carolina Tar Heels may have started the 2014 season with a loss, but it is the way they have rebounded that now has the ACC powerhouse on top of the heap.

UNC has climbed up to the No. 1 spot in the latest SBI College Soccer Top 25 on the strength of a four-match winning streak that has included four straight shutout victories. Led by an attack that is spreading the wealth in the goal-scoring department, the Tar Heels look like the team to beat in the ACC.

Another team that has overcome a rough start to the season is Marquette. The defending Big East champions have shaken off a pair of early-season defeats to also post a four-match winning streak, all via shutout, to climb back up into the SBI Top 25.

Here is the SBI College Soccer Top 25 for Sept. 19th (records through Thursday):
