Rebels picked to finish third in WAC men's soccer poll


The UNLV men’s soccer team was picked to place third in the Western Athletic Conference’s preseason poll, and junior midfielder Julian Portugal was named to the preseason all-conference team.

The Rebels are one of six teams that have moved to the WAC this season from the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation, and four of them fill the top four spots in the poll, including Cal State Bakersfield, which was predicted to win the league title.

UNLV returns seven players from last year’s squad that placed sixth in the MPSF, including junior forward Salvador Bernal, the top returning scorer from the league with eight goals and 21 points.
