Sophomore defender Brett Bebej battles for the ball against Penn State in the Big Ten Tournament Championship on April 17. IU will play the winner of the match between Milwaukee University and St. Francis College on May 2.

IU men’s soccer secured a first round bye at the NCAA Tournament during the tournament selection show Monday.

IU is the No. 3 seed in the 36-team tournament. The Hoosiers will play the winner of Milwaukee University versus St. Francis College on May 2.

IU is one of three Big Ten teams in the tournament, along with Penn State and Maryland. Michigan, the No. 3 seed in the Big Ten tournament, did not receive an at-large bid.

This will be the 34th consecutive season IU makes the NCAA Tournament and 45th overall.

IU last reached the national championship game in 2017, when it lost to Stanford University 1-0 in double overtime.

The Hoosiers’ last championship came in 2012. IU beat Georgetown 1-0.

The entire tournament will take place in Cary, North Carolina.
