Big 12 soccer has seven teams ranked in the top 49 of the latest NCAA RPI.  Four squads are in the top 30.

Big 12 teams have 22 wins and three ties in 2014 versus squads in the top 75 of the RPI.  Four league teams have a record of .500 or better against foes ranked in the top 50 of the RPI. 

Big 12 squads have a .707 win percentage versus non-conference foes, the third-best tally in league history.  The Big 12 has not lost a non-conference match since September 21.

Big 12 teams have played nine matches versus opponents ranked in the top 25 in scoring and have held those teams below their average in all but two of those matches.

Oklahoma State (No. 7), Texas (11), West Virginia (17), Texas Tech (24) and TCU (26) all rank among the NCAA’s top 26 list for the nation’s toughest schedules.

The Big 12 has had at least three ranked teams for eight consecutive weeks, including four ranked squads in three of those weeks. 

Baylor co-head coach Marci Jobson earned her 100th career win with a victory over Oklahoma on Sunday.  The win was the first for BU in Norman since 1999.

Texas Tech is 4-2 in road matches this season, with all six contests coming against teams ranked in the top 50 of the RPI. 

West Virginia’s win at Kansas gives the team at least one win over a top 10 opponent in each of the last 10 seasons.  The Mountaineers are riding a 12-match unbeaten streak.

The loss by Kansas on Sunday marked the first time this season that the Jayhawks have surrendered more than one goal in a game.  KU has eight shutouts in 2014.

Oklahoma State is unbeaten in 10 of its last 11 matches and has outscored its opponents 16-6 during the 11-game stretch.

Texas had a 29-3 shots advantage in its win over UALR and has recorded 24 or more shots in three of its last four outings.

Vittoria Arnold of TCU has at least five saves in each of the past five outings and 10 times overall this year.  She leads the Big 12 in saves.
