In the minimal supersymmetric standard model (MSSM) contained in SUSY SO(10), top-b-$\tau$Yukawa unification is achieved at the intermediate mass scale $M_I\simeq 10^{13.10}$GeV using the recent world average experimental value of the top-quark mass, $m_{\rm top} =
175\pm 6$GeV, which has been directly established by CDF and D0 experiments at the Tevatron Collider. It is also observed that the Yukawa couplings unification scale MI can be further decreased by taking lower input values of the top-quark mass. This trend indicates the possible existence of an intermediate symmetry breaking scale in SUSY SO(10). The present finding does not agree with the earlier notion that the third generation Yukawa couplings unification should occur at the GUT scale MU.
