Akron's title defense is taking a difficult path on the road, but they advanced with a 3-2 victory at 6-seed SMU and will play at fellow unseeded Charlotte. MAC Player of the Year Darren Mattocks came through with two excellent goals. Both of the Mustangs' goals came in the 83rd minute. The MAC champion NIU Huskies fell to 2-seed Creighton 3-0. No shame in how well their season went, but it's all Akron from here on out.
