Bulls Clinch BIG EAST Berth

TAMPA, Fla. –  For the third consecutive year, the University of South Florida men’s soccer team will appear in the BIG EAST Championship.

Currently tied for second place in the Red Division with 16 points, the No. 20 Bulls, 10-3-2 (5-3-1), are assured a spot in the tournament that kicks off Wed., Nov. 7 from campus sites.

A first or second-place finish in the division will earn the squad a bye in the first round and the team will then host the quarterfinal match on Sat., Nov. 10.

From there, action will move to Storrs, Conn., for the semifinals (Fri., Nov. 16) and the championship match (Sun., Nov. 18).

The Bulls have now appeared in the conference championship in each year that they have been a member of the BIG EAST.  USF captured the Red Division crown in 2005, its first season with the BIG EAST.  That team advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament, its first trip to the national bracket under head coach George Kiefer.

Currently, the Bulls sit just one point behind St. John’s in the Red Division standings.  Louisville is equal to USF with 16 points.  Both teams have also clinched berths.

On the other side of the conference, No. 7 Notre Dame, No. 2 Connecticut, Providence and No. 19 West Virginia have captured spots in the Blue Division. 

The Irish lead the way with 23 points (10-3-3 overall, 7-0-2 BE) and have secured a first-round bye.  UConn carries 19 points (13-2-1 overall, 6-2-1 BE) and the Friars and Mountaineers are locked up with 16 points each.

Only two matches remain on the regular season schedule for USF.  The team battles Syracuse Saturday in the final road game of the year and in its return home, USF will welcome division leader St. John’s in a key match-up, on Sat., Nov. 3 in the regular season finale. 

Tickets to all USF home matches are $5 for adults, $3 for youth 16-and-under and $2 for groups of 10 or more.  Season ticket packages are also available.  Call 1-800-GoBulls or visit www.GoUSFBulls.com for details.  Spectators will have the opportunity to get player and coach autographs at the conclusion of every home game down on the field.

Fans can also catch all home games on the USF Press Pass.  Live video and audio streaming is available for all matches played in the USF Soccer Stadium with Jim Henderson delivering the play-by-play call.

Bad scheduling. Just when they need a big crowd, everyone is going to be at homecoming.

depends on what time the game is at.  the times for the game could work out that people will be able to be there for some if not all of the soccer match.

I have really had some issues with soccer match scheduling. It's as if they don't bother to check the other sports' schedule at all. Granted, football game times are always TBA until the week of, but they could still change the dates of some of the soccer games. Too bad we can't all be in two places at once.
