Baylor, the Big 12 regular season champions and tournament runners up, will host Abilene Christian at Betty Lou Mays Soccer Field this weekend as a #2 seed in the 2018 NCAA Women's Soccer Tournament.

Last season, the Commodores made the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2006 and upset fourth-seeded Ohio State on the road in the first round. Adult tickets are $8, while kids 17 and under are $3.

The last time UAlbany qualified for the NCAA Tournament was during the 2016 season.

The Bulldogs claimed two signature wins over RPI Top 20 teams this year. MSU then claimed a 2-1 victory over SC, a Final Four team previous year, in the second match of conference play. It travels to Memphis and won, then it knocked off fellow SEC member SC member, a Final Four team a year ago 2-1.

Geneseo is making its sixth NCAA Tournament appearance, also qualifying in 2014, 2009, 1994, 1993 and 1992.

The Panthers have won three games in a row while Pittsburgh has put together four straight wins to take control of the AFC North. Brown was on McKnight Road when he was driving and he was pulled over "between Babcock Boulevard and the Parkway" per KDKA.

Women's soccer and field hockey ended their runs in the conference tournament with losses in the ACC quarterfinals. The Eagles will be playing Hofstra (15-5-1), the automatic qualifier from the Colonial Athletic Association, in the first round. The Tigers' 13 shutouts this season also rank second in program history behind the 2011 squad's 15 clean sheets.

"Getting a chance to host is big for a lot of reasons".

LSU owns an all-time record of 2-4-1 in the NCAA Tournament.

They were unbeaten in their last three to close the season, all three coming at WSU's Lower Soccer Field, where Washington State was 9-1-1 this season. I can't imagine anyone was hoping for the "at Arkansas" draw. "We have to not only be the best we can be, but exceed that level". We can't dwell on the past. "We're excited to play anybody".

"A couple people on the team actually called Penn State, so it was nearly amusing because we were thinking about it", BG midfielder Chelsee Washington said. "I really felt we had no peaked", Colby coach Ewan Seabrook said. We're undefeated at home right now, so we're looking forward to it. Baylor has earned a national seed just one other time, named a No. 3 seed in 2012. You're not going to the next round unless you win the first round.
