UCLA Given No. 2 Seed in NCAA Women's Soccer Tournament
By: UCLA Athletics
Second-ranked UCLA has been selected as a No. 2 seed in the 64-team field for the NCAA Women's Soccer Championship. The Pac-12 champion Bruins (17-1-2) will host Mountain West champion San Diego State (13-6-2) in the first round of play on Friday, Nov. 15 at 7 pm at Drake Stadium.

UCLA and San Diego State have met 12 times, with the Bruins holding a 10-1-1 advantage. The two teams faced each other on Sept. 13 in Los Angeles, with the Bruins winning, 2-0. They also met in the NCAA 3rd round a year ago in San Diego, a match which UCLA won, 3-0. The Bruins have faced the Aztecs one other time in NCAA Tournament play, capturing a 5-0 win in 2009 in the second round.

The winner of the UCLA-San Diego State match will advance to the second round to face either Ohio State (10-6-3) or Kentucky (13-6-1). In the other half of the quadrant are Stanford, Cal State Fullerton, Furman and No. 3 seed South Carolina.

"We're a bit surprised not to be a number one, but there are a lot of quality teams in the Top 10," said UCLA head coach Amanda Cromwell. "Any draw is going to be a hard draw at this point. We know San Diego State very well, I know their coach very well, and it's going to be a tough game."

This is UCLA's 17th consecutive and 18th overall appearance in the NCAA Tournament and third time as a No. 2 seed. The Bruins have a 47-15-3 all-time NCAA record.

Tickets for Friday's first round match are $10 for adults and $8 for youth/students (w/valid ID).
