North Carolina Goes for a Soccer Twofer

With the women's team having already secured the national championship this season, the men's team has now earned a chance to do the same, beating top-ranked Wake Forest  1-0 in the NCAA semifinals. It was the defending champion Deacons' second loss of the season.

UNC goes on to play fellow ACC team Maryland, a 1-0 winner of St. John's. The Terps have beaten the Heels twice this season already, in back to back games at College Park and Cary to close the season and eliminate UNC from the ACC Tournament, respectively. No school has ever won both the men's and women's titles in the same year, although UNC came the closest in 2001 when the men's team took the trophy home and the women's fell in the finals to Santa Clara.

The title game is played Sunday, in Frisco, Texas, but can be seen at 1 pm on ESPN2.
