Men’s soccer ends season with most wins since 2005
The Gators had the most wins in a season since 2005, where they won 10 games. The Gators started the year having their longest unbeaten streak at six games since 1980, only to hit the road and go on a five game losing streak against top opponents. Although the losing streak tanked the team in the standings, the team played each loss closely and fought until the very end. The team was solid playing in front of their home crowd after only losing one game
