CLEMSON, S.C. – The No. 9 seed Clemson men’s soccer program is set to continue its 2023 NCAA Tournament journey on Friday evening, taking on No. 5 West Virginia in the first College Cup semifinal at Lynn Family Stadium in Louisville, Ky. Kickoff is scheduled for 6 p.m. and will be shown on ESPNU.

The Tigers earned a first-round bye with a national seed after capturing their fifth ACC Tournament Championship on Nov. 12.
