Did you know? The season may be young, but that doesn’t mean the games can’t have a postseason feel. No. 29 UC Davis and No. 21 Louisville both qualified for the NCAA Tournament a season ago.

Preview: With one tournament title in the books, UC Davis hits the road looking for more of the same this weekend.

The Aggies notched three second-half goals on Friday to best Long Island, 3-1, then scored in the game’s 89th minute to edge past Cal State Bakersfield, 1-0, claiming top Copa de Causeway Classico honors.

UC Davis now faces Louisville and Michigan State in the TLC Plumbing and Utility Invitational.

The Cardinals and Spartans opened the season 1-0-1 and 1-1-0 at the Courtyard by Marriott Classic and Radisson Fall Classic, respectively.
