Just four teams remain alive in the NCAA soccer tournament, and with Akron having already been eliminated, there's sure to be a new champion this year.
College soccer blue-bloods No. 13 UCLA find themselves in the College Cup after starting the season on a three-game winless streak. Their semifinal opponent, No. 1-seeded North Carolina, have lived up to their billing by taking down Big-10 powerhouse Indiana en route to a fourth College Cup in as many years.
The faces on the other side of the bracket are less familiar. With a stellar defensive unit that has allowed just 0.22 goals per game, No. 2 Creighton return to the College Cup for the first time since 2002, while unseeded UNC Charlotte make their first appearance in the last four since 1996 after pulling a quarterfinal upset against UConn.
So who will replace Akron at the top of the college soccer heap?
