Cowgirl Soccer Earns National Seed

Jordan King - November 12, 2019 9:04 am

The NCAA announced its 2019 women’s soccer tournament bracket Monday afternoon and the Oklahoma State Cowgirls had to wait a while before hearing its named called.

It wasn’t because OSU was on the bubble, having a top-12 RPI in the country, but their region was the last announced during the selection show.

When OSU was finally announced, all minds starting working their way through the bracket to figure out what the possible path would be to making a deep run in the tournament this year.

The Pokes are the No. 3 seed in the lower-right half of the bracket. That means the Cowgirls will host the first round match at Neal Patterson stadium and they will take on South Dakota State.

In the same region, the No. 2 seed in Southern California. USC came in at No. 9 in the United Soccer Coaches poll last week, OSU was just one spot behind at No. 10.

The lower portion of the region includes one of the top teams in the country. North Carolina is the No. 1 seed in the region and one of the top-3 teams in the country by nearly every metric. The No. 4 seed is a familiar name in Texas Tech.
