The DU men’s soccer team is one win away from battling for the national championship in college soccer. Standing between them and that goal? This evening’s match against Wake Forest.

DU entered the tournament as the sixth overall seed. Wake Forest is the No. 2 seed and the highest-ranked team remaining in the tournament. The Pioneers defeated No. 3 seed Clemson last week to advance to the College Cup, while Wake Forest beat Virginia Tech.
