The University of New Mexico men's soccer team earned an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament as a #13 seed. The Lobos will have a first-round bye, and they will host the winner of Virginia (ACC) and LaFayette College (Patriot League).

"I could care less who we play, we'll take anyone at home and I like our odds," said senior Blake Smith.

"Our main thing was getting that bye and wanting to play someone in that first game who hasn't been to this field and we got both," said head coach Jeremy Fishbein.

New Mexico will play either the Cavaliers or the Leopards at 7 p.m. on Sunday night at the UNM Soccer Complex.
