The women will do battle in the familiar grounds of WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, NC for the second straight season, and fourth in the last six. While the men have previously contested their side of the College Cup in Cary every season since 2016, this year’s venue switches to Lynn Family Stadium in Louisville, KY, home of NWSL club Racing Louisville and USL side Louisville City FC.

Who is in the 2023 NCAA College Cup?

On the men’s side, the tournament has reached the quarterfinals. Last year’s runners-up Indiana are present, having made a run in this year’s tournament as an unseeded team.

Others still alive are the No. 2 and 3 overall seeds Notre Dame and North Carolina, joined by fellow ACC side Clemson which is seeded ninth. West Virginia (No. 5) and Stanford (No. 16) are the final seeded teams, with unseeded Loyola Marymount and Oregon State also with a chance to progress.

Only half those sides are destined to reach the College Cup, with all three unseeded teams matched up against a seeded opponent in the quarterfinals.

Defending champions Syracuse were upset by New Hampshire in the second round, thus seeing their title defense crumble in the process. The Orange were one of many highly-ranked ACC teams that failed to progress as far as they would have hoped.

No.1 overall seed Marshall was also upset, topped by Stanford in the third round.

The women’s final four has been set, and No.1 overall seed Florida State are still alive, gunning for fourth national championship, all in the last decade. The Seminoles are joined by fellow 1-seeds Clemson and BYU who both emerged unscathed from their featured brackets, while storied program Stanford emerged from the fourth quadrant.

Defending champions UCLA, who were the No.1 seed in the fourth bracket, fell to UC Irvine in the first round and will not be present to defend their title.
