Final[edit]

This game is the longest game in NCAA soccer history, with the winning goal scored at 166 minutes and 5 seconds of playing time.[3] After this game and the 1982 final both went to eight overtimes, the NCAA changed the rules for the 1986 season from unlimited 10-minute overtimes to a maximum of two 30-minute periods divided into halves.
