The Ohio State men’s lacrosse team isn’t done yet.

The waiting had to be like giving birth to a postseason child, but in the end, the baby came healthy with all limbs in the right place. That’s because the Buckeyes watched Suday and received the exhilarating news of receiving an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament.

The Buckeyes finished the season with a 10-5 record, one that included three wins over ranked teams. The team finished with a 3-2 record in Big Ten play and were a so-called “bubble” team. In the end, OSU did enough to make it into the ten team field.

Ohio State’s opponent will be No. 7 seed Cornell, with the game set for Sunday at 2:30 PM ET. The two met earlier this year with the Big Red beating the Buckeyes by a score of 14-11. And it’s not the first time the two programs have met in the NCAA Tournament. The Buckeyes won the previous meeting, 15-7, in 2008. This will be the seventh all-time meeting between the two schools with Cornell leading the series, 4-2.

“We’re thrilled to be able to extend our season and play in the NCAA Tournament,” said head coach Nick Myers in a statement. “To be in this position is a huge credit to the leadership on this team. They’ve guided us through a very challenging schedule and the gauntlet that is the Big Ten. Having the reward of playing next weekend is significant and we’ll immediately get to work to tackle the task in front of us.”

This is Ohio State’s seventh trip to the NCAA Tournament, four of which have come under the direction of current head coach Nick Meyers.
