ROSEMONT, Ill. – With the conclusion of today’s conference matches, the field is set for the 2023 Big Ten Men’s Soccer Tournament. The eight-team, single-elimination tournament will run Friday, Nov. 3, through Sunday, Nov. 12, at campus sites.

Indiana and Penn State shared the 2023 Big Ten Conference championship after posting matching 4-2-2 conference records. The Hoosiers claimed the tournament’s top seed after topping the Nittany Lions on Oct. 7.

Indiana (4-2-2 Big Ten) will welcome No. 8 seed Wisconsin (2-2-4) to Bloomington, Ind. in the tournament’s first quarterfinal, while fourth-seeded Northwestern (4-3-1) will host No. 5 seed Michigan (2-1-5) in the second of Friday’s four opening round fixtures.  

No. 2 seed Penn State (4-2-2) and No. 7 seed Rutgers (3-4-1) will meet in State College, PA, with No. 3 seed Michigan State (3-1-4) squaring off with No. 6 seed Ohio State (3-4-1) in East Lansing, Mich. 

The winners of those matches will advance to the semifinals on Wednesday, Nov. 8, to be hosted by the two highest remaining seeds following the quarterfinals. The championship match will then be played on Sunday, Nov. 12, at the highest remaining seed.

Both semifinals and the championship match will be televised live on the Big Ten Network and can be streamed via the web, smartphones, tablets and connected devices through the FOX Sports App. The four quarterfinals will be streamed live on BTN's digital subscription service, B1G+.

Start times for Friday’s quarterfinal round matches will be announced later this week.

This year’s Big Ten Tournament Champion will earn the conference’s automatic berth to the NCAA Tournament. Follow all the Big Ten Tournament action at and on Twitter @B1GSoccer.
