The men's soccer team will host Colgate in the opening round of the NCAA Division I Men's Soccer Championship in the program's fourth tournament appearance. The Minutemen (15-3-3 Overall) defeated Colgate (10-10-1 Overall) earlier this season on Sept. 16 at home in a match that started an 11-match unbeaten streak for UMass.
 
The Minutemen secured the Atlantic 10 automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament with a 3-1 win over VCU on November 12 in the title game in Dayton as UMass became the first team in the league to win both the regular season crown outright and tournament title in the same year since Rutgers in 1991.
 
The winner of the UMass-Colgate match will go on to face No. 13-seed Michigan on Sunday, Nov. 19 in Ann Arbor, Mich.
