GREENSBORO, N.C. - The Virginia men's soccer program has been selected to finish third in the Atlantic Coast Conference, as determined by a vote of the league's nine head coaches.

Duke received the nod as the 2007 ACC preseason favorite, followed by Wake Forest. North Carolina was fourth, followed by Maryland and Clemson. Boston College and Virginia Tech tied for seventh, while NC State was selected ninth.

The Cavaliers host South Florida in exhibition action at Klöckner Stadium on Saturday, August 25. The season opener is slated for Friday, August 31 against Columbia at 7:30 p.m. at Klöckner Stadium.

Last season, the Cavaliers finished with a 17-4-1 overall record and reached the NCAA College Cup. Fifteen players, including six starters, return from that squad.
