BYU learned their seeding and bracket Monday afternoon, receiving a two seed in the NCAA Tournament.

The Cougars capped off their record undefeated regular season on Saturday evening with an 8-1 win over Loyola Marymount. With the Cougars at 18-0-1, they are the last undefeated team in NCAA Women’s Soccer, as #1 Virginia lost the ACC Championship to North Carolina.

The Cougars will host Boise State (18-4) in the first round at South Field, which has been a fortress for the Cougars this year. At home, BYU is 9-0 on the season, scoring 45 goals in those 9 matches while conceding just 5.

BYU has a TOUGH bracket, with Stanford, Penn State, Arkansas, Louisville, TCU, Arizona, and NC State all in the same bracket. This is BYU's highest seeding since their 1 seed in 2012. BYU can host as far as the third round, depending on results.

BYU will play on Friday, with kickoff set for 6 p.m. MST. Fans can buy tickets on the BYU Tickets site.
