the first two games-Cornell, then the winner gets #5 seed Princeton. If they survive that they get the winner out of the Louisville/James Madison vs #4 seed Penn State in order to make the final 4.
Well at least its not our usual Northwestern bracket who is stuck needing to get past #1 Seed Maryland. Those two along with PSU were the lone Big 10 entries. The other two brackets have #2 seed NC with Virginia and Penn (3rd Ivy team) in one and #6 Seed Syracuse taking on Boston College/Canisius winner then needing to go through #3 Florida vs USC/Jacksonville survivor.
It's a reasonable bracket for us but we have to still beat Princeton on their field which we didn't due earlier in the season when we lost 14-8. Overall ND was 11-7 with all our losses coming to tournament teams. We also beat 3 tourney entries (Cuse, Duke, & Louisville).
Good luck to the ND women. It would be awesome if both the men's and women's teams could make it to Gillette stadium for the Final 4.
