WVU Men's Soccer

The champions of the MAC now know their opponent in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

West Virginia will face Butler of the BIG EAST to kick off their NCAA Tournament run, with a possible meeting with Marshall awaiting in the second round if they should win.

The first round begins on Nov. 21.

The Bulldogs finished the 2019 season with an 11-6-2 record, including a 4-4-1 mark in the BIG EAST. That put them as the no. 4 seed in the conference tournament, but they would fall in the second round to Georgetown.

The Mountaineers earned their bid after winning their own conference tournament, beating Bowling Green 1-0 in the MAC Tournament finals.
