Tuesday night's scheduled second-round NCAA Tournament men's soccer match between Akron (17-1-2) and West Virginia (13-7-2) was postponed due to inclement weather.

That game has been rescheduled for noon today at Lee Jackson Field. All previously purchased tickets will be honored at the match. Tickets will be available for purchase at the gate, $8 for adults and $5 for students/children. The first 350 Akron students in attendance will have their tickets paid for by the UA Athletics Department.

The match between Connecticut and Stony Brook, scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday night in Storrs, Conn., also was postponed due to weather. That game will be played at noon today. The winner of the Akron/West Virginia game will face the winner of the Connecticut/Stony Brook game in a third-round match this weekend.

It's a very exciting time for the Akron football program as your team is on the brink of its first-ever MAC East Division Championship.

As many of you well know, tomorrow's game against Kent State (10 a.m. at the Rubber Bowl) will help to determine whether the Zips play for the MAC Championship on Dec. 1 in Detroit. Akron also needs Northern Illinois to defeat Western Michigan in its 1:30 p.m. home match-up later today in order for the Zips to get a tie-breaker advantage over Bowling Green and to claim the MAC East Division crown.

Because the turnaround time between tomorrow's game and Dec. 1 is so short, UA Athletics has put a plan in place for traveling to and activities in Detroit. We want to share those plans with you so that you can select the best options for you, your family and friends.

The following MAC Championship Game fan packages are available through the Zips Athletics Ticket Office. These trips will be available via Zips Express Charter Coach. All transportation will depart from Rhodes Arena at noon on Thursday, Dec. 1, and will return to Akron immediately following the game.

OPTION 3:
