Power Rankings: Week 22
What were you doing on May 20? Too long ago to remember? It seems like a lifetime ago for FC Dallas, who have reeled off a 12-game unbeaten streak since they lost way back when. They're at No. 2 this week after a scoreless draw in Columbus, while RSL hold down the top spot and LA plummet to their lowest ranking this year.
Instant classic in Mexico City makes us love the champs even more.
