Patriots Plane Flies UNH Men's Soccer Team To NCAA Tournament Game In Oregon

BOSTON (CBS) -- The University of New Hampshire's men's soccer team arrived to their upcoming NCAA Tournament matchup in style.

The New England Patriots and owner Robert Kraft lent the team the Patriots Plane on Friday, transporting the team to Corvallis, Ore.

The Wildcats will be taking on top-seeded Oregon State in the third round of the tournament after beating UNC in the second round.

"I want to thank the Patriots organization for coming through when we were desperate to find a way to get out west as efficient as possible," UNH Head Coach Marc Hubbard told "Travel has never made me feel so energized and we have no excuses to compete with everything we have on Sunday. The Patriot Way has given us a better chance to succeed and we are proud to represent all of New England and what that means this weekend."

UNH is in the NCAA Tournament for the fifth consecutive year.
