The UCLA men's soccer team will face fourth-seeded San Diego in the first round of the NCAA Men's Soccer Championships. The game will take place at San Diego on Saturday, Nov. 18 at 5:00 pm.

The Bruins (12-6-0) received an at-large bid into the tournament, extending their streak to 18 consecutive NCAA tournament appearances. The Toreros (15-1-2) earned an automatic bid by virtue of their West Coast Conference Championship.

"We're excited because for the time in a long time there were some questions going into the selection. It was more in the hands of the committee this year than ever before," said UCLA head coach Todd Salda?a. "San Diego is traditionally one of the top teams in the region. They've had a good run this season, and they are a tough team at home."

The two teams met last season in the NCAA first round at UCLA, with the Bruins winning 4-1 behind two goals by McKinley Tennyson Jr. UCLA leads the all-time series, 13-2-2 and has won three straight against the Toreros.
