The University of Denver men’s soccer team will host College Soccer Saturday, featuring the Pioneers, Tulsa, New Mexico and Creighton, all of which played in the 2010 NCAA Tournament, at the University of Denver Soccer Stadium on April 9.

DU will take on Tulsa under the lights at 7 p.m. The Pioneers won the 2010 Mountain Pacific Sports Federation and received an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament, where they were edged 1-0 by UC Santa Barbara in double overtime during the first round. Tulsa beat Bradley in the NCAA Tournament First Round before falling to Indiana in the Second Round.

The Lobos and Blue Jays will meet at 4:30 p.m. in a rematch from the 2010 NCAA Tournament First Round, when Creighton advanced with a 4-1 victory before falling to SMU in the Second Round.

Additionally, the weekend also will feature a Spring College ID Camp and Coaches Symposium.

The Spring College ID Camp will be held Fri., April 8 from 5-8 p.m., and will feature college coaches training youth players. The camp is open to boys ages 12-18 and costs $50 per player.
