LOS ANGELES - The 64-team field for the 2011 NCAA Women's Soccer Championships was revealed on Monday and UCLA has been selected as a No. 2 seed in the tournament, which kicks off at college campuses across the country this week.
The Bruins (15-1-3) will host New Mexico (12-4-4) in the first round this Saturday at Drake Stadium beginning at 7:00 p.m. The winner will advance to the second round and will take on either San Diego or UC Irvine on Nov. 18. Duke is the No. 1 seed in the Bruins' quarter of the draw.
It marks the sixth time in the last seven years that UCLA has earned either a No. 1 or 2 seed in the tournament. The Bruins advanced to the round of 16 at last year's tournament, falling to top-seeded Stanford.
Tickets for Saturday's first round are $10 for adults and $8 for youth/students (w/valid ID).
