Michigan soccer hosting Big Ten tournament, plays first game tonight

By Staff

Starting tonight in Ann Arbor, the Michigan men’s soccer team has a chance to make up for a disappointing regular season.

The Wolverines (5-13-1) host the Big Ten Tournament at the U-M Soccer Stadium this week. The No. 6-seeded Michigan team opens play against No. 3 Wisconsin at 6:30 p.m. tonight.

Michigan won last year’s Big Ten tournament - the first title in program history - by beating host Penn State, 4-1, in the championship game. Earning the conference’s automatic NCAA Tournament berth, the Wolverines lost to eventual national champion Akron in a College Cup semifinal.

Regular season champion Northwestern is this tournament’s No. 1 seed. They’ll play Indiana in one semifinal at 1 p.m. Friday. The Hoosiers opened tournament play with a 2-1 win over Michigan State Wednesday afternoon. (Complete schedule)

The other semifinal, which kicks off at 3:30 p.m. Friday, will feature the winner of the Michigan-Wisconsin game vs. the winner of today’s Ohio State vs. Penn State matchup.

Both semifinals will be broadcast live by the Big Ten Network, as will the championship game scheduled for noon on Sunday.
