Senior Greg Stratton and Redshirt Senior Kyle Hiebert dump Powerade onto head coach Jon Leamy. The Bears won 3-0 against the Evansville Aces on Sunday, Nov. 14, securing the MVC Championship for the second year in a row.

The Soccer Bears are heading to the big dance.

After going 17-1 in the regular season and winning the Missouri Valley Conference tournament, the Bears got an unseeded bid in the National Tournament.

The Bears will face a former MVC rival in Creighton. The Blue Jays left the MVC in 2013 for the Big East.

Creighton has an 8-7-2 record this year, losing in the conference tournament game to Villanova.

The game will be played Thursday night in Springfield at Betty and Bobby Allison South Stadium.
