STORRS, Conn. - The upcoming men’s soccer match against Creighton in the NCAA Quarterfinals on Sunday, December 2 is SOLD OUT. The winner of Sunday’s match will advance to the 2012 College Cup in Hoover, Ala. Sunday’s match will mark UConn’s fifth sell out and the fourth advance sell out of the season.
