The reigning Big Ten Champion Rutgers Scarlet Knights will face Penn to open up the Men’s Soccer NCAA Tournament on Thursday, November 17.

The game will take place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Kick-off time was not immediately available as of 2:15 p.m. ET.

Rutgers captured an automatic bid to the tournament thanks to its dominating 3-1 win over Indiana in the Big Ten Championship game on Sunday afternoon in front of a jam-packed crowd at Yurcak Field in Piscataway.

The victory was Rutgers’ first-ever Men’s Soccer Big Ten title, and the first overall conference title for men’s soccer since 1997.
