Maryland men's soccer received a vote of confidence from the rest of the Big Ten, finishing first in the conference's preseason coaches poll for the second year in a row.

The team made a splash in its first season in the Big Ten, finishing with a 13-6-3 record including a 5-2-1 conference record, winning the conference's regular season title and postseason tournament, and the team's peers are expecting B1G production from the Terps again.

Senior midfielders Mael Corboz and Tsubasa Endoh and junior defender Chris Odoi-Atsem were named to the Big Ten preseason players to watch list. Corboz led the team in goals last season with 10.

Indiana finished second out of the nine teams in the poll. Here's a look at all nine:

1. Maryland

2. Indiana

3. Penn State

4. Michigan State

5. Ohio State

6. Northwestern

7. Michigan

8. Rutgers

9. Wisconsin

The Terps kick off their season against Notre Dame next Friday, August 28, in Bloomington, Indiana.
