WSU hosts Illinois in snowy College Cup tilt

The Cougs host the Illini in postseason action today. Here is your first look at the Illini, a link to the webcast and a spot to hang out with fellow Coug fans to talk soccer.


WSU-Illinois NCAA match to be webcast

There will be no television broadcast for Washington State's first round game of the College Cup -- the NCAA's soccer tournament -- against Illinois, but fans looking to watch the match are in luck: WSU will be streaming the match over its channel.

The match starts at 1 p.m. Pacific Time at Lower Soccer Field in Pullman.

This is WSU's fifth NCAA tournament appearance in six years, but the first time since 2000 that WSU has hosted a match. The Cougs are 2-6-2 all time in the tournament and last won a match in 2011, beating Kentucky on penalty kicks. WSU was knocked out a year ago on penalty kicks by Portland.

However, WSU has been incredibly tough at home this year, outscoring opponents 17-6 and posting wins over then-No. 21 California and then-No. 6 Stanford to close out the season. The Cougars also are in the midst of a dominating run, having won five consecutive Pac-12 matches by a combined score of 10-1.
