University of New Mexico Lobo Men's Soccer is primed and ready for Sunday's 5:00 NCAA Tournament Second Round Match versus George Mason University. George Mason defeated William and Mary Thursday night in penalty kicks to advance to Albuquerque and the Second Round. Looks like questionable weather, so prepare for cold and wet conditions. Tickets are selling quickly, so make sure to purchase them early at the Pit ticket office, UNM Bookstore or on-line (on-line ticket purchases will be available at the soccer stadium ticket office Will Call one hour prior to game time).
