What rules does NCAA men's soccer use?No. All NCAA men’s soccer matches are played under NCAA rules, which differ from FIFA rules in several areas. For example, the clock counts down, no stoppage time is added at the end of each half as the clock stops during play when necessary, and substitution rules are much more liberal. Also, should a match go to extra time, that’ll only involve 20 minutes of play in a golden goal format.
How many national championship matches have needed extra time?Georgetown and Virginia played the 17th national championship match to require extra time. In fact, it was the third in the past four seasons as Stanford won the second and third of its recent three-peat, in 2016 and 2017, after additional time had been played.
