The 2023 College Cup is here, with three of the four No. 1 seeds in the NCAA soccer tournament making it through to the semifinals.

Top seeds Florida State, Clemson and BYU have reached the final weekend, as well as No. 2 seed Stanford. BYU advanced only after a shocking come-from-behind victory over perennial power North Carolina, which had taken a three-goal lead into the half. The Cougars responded, rattling off four unanswered goals to advance.

“I’ve never seen that in my life,” UNC coach Anson Dorrance said. “That was just an extraordinary comeback for a great team. They came after us.”

In the semifinal round, Florida State will face Clemson in a rematch of the ACC Tournament championship, which the Seminoles won 2-1. They also won their earlier meeting with the Tigers back in September. BYU will go up against Stanford in the other semifinal.

This year’s College Cup will take place in Cary, North Carolina, at WakeMed Soccer Park. The first semifinal will be played at 6 p.m. ET Friday, Dec. 1, with the second semifinal at 8:30 p.m. ET. Both games will be televised on ESPNU.

The national championship will kick off at 6 p.m. ET Monday, Dec. 5. The championship match also will be televised on ESPNU.
