After a two season absence, Boston College has returned to the NCAA men's soccer tournament.

The NCAA revealed the full bracket for the 2015 Division 1 NCAA Men's Soccer Tournament on Monday afternoon and the Eagles made the field of 48. BC will host the University of Vermont on Thursday night at 6 PM in their opening game at the Newton Campus soccer complex. Should BC win, they will travel to face #14 University of South Florida on Sunday in the round of 32.

BC finished the season 9-7-1 and 4-4-0 in ACC play, finishing 16th in the RPI. Vermont is #67 in RPI but comes in red hot as autobid winners following the America East conference tournament. UVM has a record of 11-6-3.

This is BC's 12th appearance in the NCAA tournament under Ed Kelly, who earned his 300th career win earlier this season. BC had made the tournament six straight seasons from 2007-2012, but two straight down years gave the impression that the program was on the down swing. However, they bounced back with a solid season this year and have every opportunity to win a couple of games and get in to the Sweet 16.
