This Week In Pac-10 Men's Soccer
CALIFORNIA and UCLA have advanced to the third round of the 2010 Division I Men's Soccer Championship and will both face Ivy League opponents in their next matches on Sunday, Nov. 28.
The sixth-seed Golden Bears host the Brown Bears at Edwards Stadium in Berkeley. Brown (12-3-4) upset No. 11 seed Connecticut on penalty kicks in the second round. The two teams last met in 2004, tying, 0-0, in double-overtime in the Stanford Nike Invitational.
This is Cal's 16th all-time NCAA appearance and the ninth in head coach Kevin Grimes' 11-year tenure. The Bears are in the Tournament after a one-year absence. Cal's best finish was the quarterfinal round in 2005.
Eighth-seed UCLA welcomes Dartmouth to Drake Stadium. The Big Green (12-6-1) took down No. 9 seed Notre Dame in overtime in the second round.
The Bruins make their 28th-straight and 38th all-time appearance in the Tournament. UCLA has been crowned NCAA Champions four times - 1985, 1990, 1997 and 2002 - and have advanced to the College Cup 12 times, most recently in 2006.
