Rebels host NCAA tournament tonight

Posted on Nov 13 2015 - 11:49am by Collin Brister

The Rebels soccer team will take on the Murray State Racers at 7:30 p.m. today at the Ole Miss Soccer Stadium in an NCAA tournament contest.

The Rebels are 13-5-2 on the season and have defeated ranked teams such as Texas A&M, South Carolina and Auburn. The Rebels are coming into the NCAA tournament on a two-game losing streak, but have won five of the previous seven.

If the Rebels were to win, they would take on the winner of two-seed Clemson and 15-seed Furman.  If the Rebels were to face Clemson, they would travel to South Carolina to take on the Tigers, but if Furman upsets the Tigers, they would host Furman with a win.

The Rebels share the bracket with North Carolina, who has garnered 22 national championships in program history with the most recent coming in 2012.
