College Soccer Preview: Road to Birmingham begins

College Soccer Preview: Road to Birmingham begins

Runners-up Louisville bring guns back, but UCLA, Akron will push


School is back in session.

The abbreviated college soccer preseason is nearly over, and this coming weekend, the start of a long road that begins, one that will end with the College Cup in Birmingham, Ala., in December.

Many of last season’s heroes are now enduring the long season of MLS, and another talented group of players will look to step up and fill in the gaps to players lost to graduation.

Each program deals with a varying amount of departing talent, and how each copes with it will determine success over the next few months. Here’s a look at some of the teams to look out for this year:

NCAA College Cup:
Hoyas, Hoosiers set for Sunday final



Maryland and Georgetown played to a pulsating 4-4 draw in the College Cup semifinals on Friday night, with the Hoyas eventually winning 4-3 on penalty kicks to book a ticket to their first national championship appearance.


Indiana Hoosiers, who qualified for a record 14th trip to the College Cup final with a 1-0 win over Creighton later Friday night. “For me, growing up in Bloomington, it’s special,” senior defender Caleb Konstanski told reporters. “You grow up watching the teams bring back national titles and coming here as freshman that was the goal to bring the team back. It was a long process, but this is such an unbelievable feeling.”

NCAA Recap:
Hoosiers take record 8th College Cup title



Nikita Kotlov’s 63rd minute goal and some trademark defending was enough for Todd Yeagley’s Indiana University side to claim their eighth national title, shutting out a game but tired Georgetown team 1-0 in Sunday’s College Cup final.

The Hoosiers shutout each of their last three opponents, and won both of their College Cup games 1-0.
