dc.description.abstract This research project was designed to provide evidence on whether the number of days between NCAA Division I soccer matches affects the statistical output and probability of winning. Statistics were gathered from the top 25 ranked teams for the 2010 and 2014 seasons and were grouped into two categories: positive statistics and negative statistics. Positive statistics consisted of shots, shots on goal, goals, corner kicks, fouls suffered, and wins. Negative statistics included shots conceded, shots on goal conceded, goals conceded, corner kicks conceded, fouls committed, and losses. Statistics were gathered from 1,022 matches and the results did not indicate there were significant correlations for the days between matches and positive statistics as well as the probability of winning the match. Negative statistics on the other hand did show evidence of a relationship between the two. Top 25 men’s soccer programs statistically had the best negative statistics when playing on three days rest and their worst results when playing on six days rest.
