SEATTLE The 3/2 UW men's soccer team will play host to Air Force on Sunday, Sept. 11 at 3 p.m. at Husky Soccer Stadium. The game will air on Pac-12 Network and Washington.
 
The Huskies have yet to lose this season as they sit at the top of the Pac-12 with Stanford. Both teams are 4-0-0. Washington remains ranked in the Top 10 for the 33rd straight week, the longest streak in the country.  
 
The Falcons are coming off a 1-3 loss to Central Arkansas on Sept. 5.  
 
UW-AIR FORCE HISTORY 
The Huskies lead the all-time series 8-1-0. UW is on an eight game winning streak during the series with the lone loss coming in an 0-1 defeat in 1992.  
 
INDIVIDUAL RECOGNITION 
After recording his first career hat trick in a 4-1 win over Utah Valley on Sept. 2, sophomore forward Ilijah Paul was named the TopDrawerSoccer National Player of the Week (Sept. 6) and United Soccer Coaches National Player of the Week (Sept. 7). Paul was also named to the College Soccer News National Team of the Week (Sept. 5) and was selected as Pac-12 Player of the Week.
