In Division 1 men’s soccer, when is the last time a New England-based program made Final Four weekend?
The answer to that trivia question is 2014, when Providence College was a double-overtime battle vs. UCLA away from fighting for a national championship. Star forward Mac Steeves (Needham, Mass.) scored twice for the Friars, but they dropped the semifinal matchup, 3-2.
The University of Vermont is on the verge of updating that prompt, traveling to upstate New York for an Elite Eight battle vs. Syracuse on Saturday afternoon (2 pm ET | ESPN+).
