NCAA Trophy College Cup

College Cup concludes in Philadelphia

This is the moment all collegiate soccer fans have been waiting for. 

The College Cup this weekend, with the semifinals taking place Friday night and the finals kicking off Sunday afternoon. 

This year's tournament features some familiar teams, as three of the four teams have made the College Cup multiple times during the last three years.

Stanford enters the semifinals as the two-time defending champion, and is looking to become the first team to three-peat in the College Cup since Virginia won four straight in 1991-1994. Standing in their way is Akron, who is in the semifinals for the second time in three years. In 2015, Akron was eliminated by Stanford, and will be looking for revenge by knocking the Cardinal out of the tournament. 

On the other side of the bracket, North Carolina enters the semifinals for the first time since 2011, when the Tar Heels won their second national championship. Facing off against North Carolina is Indiana, collegiate soccer's only undefeated team and second-most decorated program in history. 

Will Standford be able to three-peat? Will Indiana remain undefeated? These are just a couple of questions fans will have answered Friday and Sunday. 

Kick-off for Standford vs. Akron is at 6:00 p.m. ET Friday evening, followed by North Carolina vs. Indiana at 8:45 p.m. ET. The two winners will face off in the championship game at 1:00 p.m. ET Sunday afternoon. Tickets are still available for all matches.
