Maryland men’s soccer has made it to the College Cup for the first time since 2013 after knocking off Kentucky in the Elite Eight over the weekend. Head coach Sasho Cirovski and company will take on No. 2 Indiana for the third time this season on Friday in Santa Barbara, California.

Kickoff is at 10:30 p.m. ET and the semifinal match will air on ESPNU.

Maryland meets up with its conference foe on the heels of a 1-0 win in Lexington, Kentucky, with Sebastian Elney scoring the deciding goal. The Terps earned the No. 11 seed in the NCAA Tournament despite not being ranked until following the Big Ten tournament. Maryland then found its way to the College Cup by taking down NC State at home, before Cirovski’s road warriors knocked off No. 6-seed Duke and the No. 3-seeded Wildcats.

The Hoosiers have had home-field advantage thus far this tournament, toppling Connecticut and Air Force before beating No. 7-seed Notre Dame in the Elite Eight. They’ve faced Maryland once in the regular season and once in the conference tournament. The Hoosiers won both prior matches in Indiana, with the game-winner coming in the 90th minute the first time and Indiana winning in penalty kicks the second time.

The other semifinal will feature Michigan State taking on Akron at 8 p.m. ET Friday. The winners of both matches return to the pitch Sunday at 8 p.m. ET for the national championship.
