The No. 2 Kentucky Wildcats men’s soccer team (11-0-5, 5-0-3 Sun Belt) clinched the Sun Belt Conference regular-season title outright with Tuesday’s 3-0 victory over South Carolina (5-7-4, 1-4-3 Sun Belt).

For the first time in program history, Kentucky finished undefeated in the 16-game regular-season schedule. The Wildcats are one of three NCAA Division I men’s soccer programs still undefeated, including Washington and Duke.

Up next, Kentucky will host the first two rounds of the conference tournament, which takes place November 6-7. Their first game is a rematch with the Gamecocks.

If the Cats win on Sunday, they’ll move into the semifinals vs. the winner of West Virginia vs. Coastal Carolina on Wednesday, November 9th. Below is a schedule of said matches.
