Women’s Soccer Earns No. 2 Seed, Will Face Buffalo

The NCAA Division I Women’s Soccer Championship field was announced today, and the Nittany Lions enter the tournament as a No. 2 seed despite being upset by Northwestern in the Big Ten Tournament.

The Nittany Lions (17-3-0, 12-1-0 in the Big Ten) will host their preliminary round matchup against the Buffalo Bulls on Friday, Nov. 14 at 7:30 p.m. in the friendly confines of Jeffrey Field. Buffalo, which finished its season with a 16-2-3 record, enters the tournament unseeded.

The defending champion UCLA Bruins earned the tournament’s No. 1 overall seed, as they look to continue their stretch of success and repeat as national champions.

Thirty-one conferences earned automatic bids for the tournament, while the remaining teams were selected at large. Wisconsin earned the Big Ten’s automatic bid and will take on DePaul. Conference opponents cannot play each other until the first two rounds have passed.

Penn State will have stiff competition in its journey to the championship game, with its region boasting teams like Texas A&M, West Virginia, and Notre Dame.

The NCAA Women’s College Cup will take place on Dec. 5 and Dec. 7 at FAU Stadium in Boca Raton, Florida. The first and second semifinals will be at 5:00 p.m and 7:30 p.m. respectively, while the national championship game will take place Dec. 7 at 1:00 p.m. The semifinals and national championship will be broadcasted on ESPNU.

An interactive bracket can be found here, so fans can attempt to predict the champion March Madness style.
