A field of 48 teams had been announced by the NCAA for the 2015 Men’s College Cup. Included among that field are six California-based programs.
Two California programs were seeded, which grants them a first-round bye and a home game in the second round on November 22. Stanford, Pac-12 Champions, is the #8 seed and UC Santa Barbara is the lowest seeded team at #15.
The four unseeded California teams will enter the NCAA tournament in the first round, which kicks off on Thursday, November 19. CSU Fullerton, Big West Conference Champions, will host West Coast Conference Champions Santa Clara. Winner of this match will face Stanford.
UCLA makes its 33rd consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance and will host Cal Poly. Winner of this match faces Seattle.
UC Santa Barbara will host the winner of South Carolina/Furman.
