DENVER, Colo. - The No. 18 University of Colorado Colorado Springs (13-2-2 / 9-2-2 RMAC) closes out the 2012 regular season with a chance to secure a first round bye in next week's RMAC tournament when the Mountain Lions face Metro State (11-4-2 / 8-3-2 RMAC) Sunday at noon in Denver.
The Mountain Lions can clinch a bye in the first round with a win and could win the RMAC with a win and a Regis loss.
