Quite possibly the best team remaining in the College Cup tournament is Indiana, who also happens to be the highest seed at No. 2 overall. The Hoosiers have a very real chance at winning their ninth NCAA championship and their first since 2012.

Indiana remains as the only school in Division-I men’s soccer to remain undefeated, and the school is just two wins away from having an undefeated season. What makes the feat even more impressive is that the Hoosiers have faced 10 ranked opponents throughout the season. What makes Indiana so difficult to play against is that any player can score. The team has six players with double-digit points, and only one player with double-digit goals. Nine players have scored more than three goals. But really where Indiana excels is in the defensive third. The team has only allowed six goals during the entire season, averaging 0.26 goals allowed per game, the lowest in the country. Goalkeeper Trey Muse has started every game for the Hoosiers, and his 0.24 goals against average and .906 save percentage is also tops in the country for an individual goalkeeper. The Hoosiers can score, and if you manage to put one past the Indiana defense, you may want to keep the ball. If anyone is considered the favorite to win the College Cup, it has got to be Indiana.
Tickets are still available for the College Cup semifinals and finals.
