This is the Cavaliers 39th consecutive appearance in the NCAA Tournament, which is the longest active streak in the country.
The Clemson men's soccer team is the No. 8 National Seed in the 48-team bracket for the 2017 NCAA Tournament, as announced by the NCAA on Monday afternoon.
This marks the first trip to the NCAA tournament for UNO since the men's soccer program was started in 2011. The Irish were seeded 13th in 2016, seventh in 2015, were the top overall seed in both 2012 and 2014, and won the 2013 NCAA Championship as the third seed in their last five tournament berths. The Badgers defeated No. 4 seed Maryland 2-1 (Nov. 5) and No. 1 seed MI 4-0 (Nov. 10) on their way to the tournament crown. Making their 10th NCAA Championship appearance in the last 11 seasons, the Cardinals (11-2-4) earned a first round bye and will host the victor of Thursday's California-San Francisco contest (played in Berkeley) in a second round match on Sunday at 5 p.m., ET at Dr. Mark and Cindy Lynn Stadium.More news: Syria deal in the works ahead of likely Trump-Putin meeting
IN earns the overall No. 2 seed and will host the victor of Old Dominion-NC State in the second round after advancing to the Big Ten Tournament championship match. Louisville was 5-2-4 at home this season and has a 28-11-10 record all-time at Lynn Stadium, now in its fourth season as the team's home facility.
The Spartans have lost only one game at DeMartin Stadium in the last two seasons.
