The bracket is set for the men's NCAA Soccer Championship, with plenty of young Sounders academy talent to keep an eye on in the 48-team field over the next month.
Jordan Morris with Stanford is of course the rising star to watch, but there are nine other academy products on five teams with a chance to win it all. For extra local pride, support Seattle University as they look to complete their return to glory under coach Pete Fewing. They have been ranked in the top 10 this season for the first time in the school's history.
Unfortunately the University of Washington and its seven Sounders didn't receive a bid into the tournament for the first time in four years. They finished a close third in the tough Pac-12 conference behind UCLA, but the season finished with disappointment after earning just eight wins.
You can find the big bracket right here. The two semifinals and the championship game will broadcast on ESPN U on Dec. 11 and 13.
