After celebrating a Big Ten tournament championship on Sunday, the Penn State men’s soccer program learned what’s next for them as the NCAA unveiled the bracket fr this season’s NCAA Men’s Soccer College Cup. The dual Big Ten champions from Happy Valley will get the benefit of a bye in the first round of the tournament and will get to play at home in their first matchup on Sunday, Nov. 12.

The NCAA revealed the entire men’s soccer College Cup bracket on Monday afternoon. Penn State received the No. 12 overall seed, which awards the Nittany Lions with a bye in the first round and a home game against the winner of Hoftsra vs. Lipscomb in the first round. Hoftsra and Lipscomb will face each other on Thursday, Nov. 18.

If Penn State wins their home matchup against either Hofstra or Lipscombe, they could be set for an in-state matchup with the Pitt Panthers. Pitt secured the No. 5 seed in the tournament and is the highest seed in Penn State’s branch of the bracket.

Other seeded teams in Penn State’s bracket include No. 4 Notre Dame and No. 13 FIU, but Penn State has to make it past Pitt for any showdown against either team for a chance to play in the semifinal.
