The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, fresh from a 35-8 Southern Conference win over Appalachian State, moved up to No. 19 in the National Wrestling Coaches Association poll this week.

The Mocs were No. 20 last week after entering the poll at No. 23 three weeks ago. They had not been in the Top 25 since 2008. They finished that year at No. 18.

UTC's Nick Soto (31-7) is ranked No. 11 among the nation's 133-pounders, while 165-pound Corey Mock (22-2) is No. 12.

UTC will be on the road this week, challenging Campbell, the only other unbeaten (4-0) team left in the conference, on Saturday and Davidson on Sunday.
