2013 ACC Field Hockey Championship Bracket Set

via bceagles.com

Field hockey to play Syracuse in first round of ACC Tournament; host conference tournament for the second time.

On Sunday, the conference released the 2013 Atlantic Coast Conference Field Hockey Championship bracket. The Championship gets under way tomorrow and will be hosted by none other than Boston College at Newton Campus Field Hockey Complex.

Even though the Eagles come into the championship as the 10th ranked team in the nation, BC drew the seventh (last) seed for this week's Championship. That's how ridiculously stacked ACC field hockey is this season. This year's Championship features seven ranked teams, and six of the top ten, winners of 10 of the last 11 national championships and four of the top 10 winningest coaches in NCAA Division I Field Hockey history.

Boston College finished the regular season just 1-5 in conference play. Three of those five losses were one goal games with the Virginia game going to double OT. The Eagles' lone conference win on the year happens to have come against their quarterfinal opponent, the second seeded Syracuse Orange (15-2, 4-2 ACC). BC won the regular season meeting between the two teams, 6-3, on September 20 (for three big #OrangeEagle points).

Here's the complete tournament bracket:
