The Cavaliers (23-1) are the No. 1 overall seed in the tournament and are looking for their second College Cup appearance. Virginia is playing in the quarterfinals for the fourth time in the past 12 seasons, but aims for its first trip to the semifinals since 1991. The Cavaliers, the nation's highest scoring team with 75 goals, has posted three shutouts to reach the Elite Eight, topping Saint Francis (5-0), Georgetown (1-0) and Wake Forest (2-0).
Michigan (18-3-1) has advanced the quarterfinals for the second time in program history (2002) and is looking for its first trip to the College Cup. The Wolverines have allowed only 10 goals all season and reached the quarterfinals with wins over Milwaukee (4-0), Illinois State (3-0) and Notre Dame (1-0). Michigan is led by Greg Ryan, who coached the United States Women's National Team from 2005-07.
Friday's quarterfinal marks the first all-time meeting between the Cavaliers and Wolverines. It is the third first-time opponent Virginia has played in this year's tournament (Saint Francis, Georgetown).
The Virginia-Michigan winner will play the winner of North Carolina and UCLA in the NCAA Women's College Cup in Cary, N.C. The semifinals are scheduled for Dec. 6, with the championship game on Dec. 8.
