WASHINGTON - The Pac-12 Network released its men's soccer television schedule earlier this week and Georgetown University will be a part of two games within the opening week of the season.

Last season, Georgetown made history with its first-ever trip to the College Cup and a national championship game appearance. GU finished the season with a record of 19-4-3 and a mark of 6-2-0 in the BIG EAST Conference. The squad was the third overall seed in the NCAA Tournament and the 19 wins were the most in program history. The Hoyas were the BIG EAST Blue Division Champions, the BIG EAST Championship runners-up and advanced to the national championship game in PKs in a thrilling game against the University of Maryland.
Cal was 8-7-3 a season ago with a mark of 3-5-2 in the Pac-12. Georgetown is 0-1 all-time against the Golden Bears.
