The Pac-12 Conference saw several if its top teams endure somewhat slow starts to the 2014 college season, but September has seen many of them rally to climb up the SBI College Soccer Top 25.

The Washington Huskies climbed into the top spot in the latest SBI rankings after posting their fourth straight win heading into this weekend. California and Stanford are two other Pac-12 teams that have climbed into the Top 12 after suffering early-season losses.

Another team that has been a pleasant surprise is Penn State. The Nittany Lions are one of the few remaining unbeaten teams in the nation, and wins against Indiana and Ohio State have Penn State looking like a strong frontrunner in the Big Ten.

Here is the SBI College Soccer Top 25 for Sept. 26th (records through Thursday):
