College Soccer Weekend Preview

The picture in the Pac-12 should become more clear after this weekend. The No.1 ranked California in SBI’s College Soccer Top 25 has a chance to stake its claim to the top spot on Friday before being able to watch No. 2 Washington and No. 9 UCLA play two more games this weekend. Both teams face a conference opponent Friday and then meet in Los Angeles on Sunday.

A top tilt in the Big East pits No. 5 Georgetown against No. 21 Marquette in a game between the conference’s top two teams. Another ranked matchup in the Big Ten sees No. 15 Northwestern travel to No. 14 Penn State.

Tenth-ranked Maryland will look to bounce back this weekend at Syracuse after the team’s first ACC loss of the season last week to No. 8 Wake Forest. The Demon Deacons visit Duke on Friday. Conference leaders and third-ranked Notre Dame will play host to Virginia on Saturday.

Here is a closer look at NCAA College Soccer this weekend:

    Failed to mention the biggest rivalry in college soccer: UC Santa Barbara traveling north to take on Cal Poly.

    • Brian says:

      I believe history has already been made in that game. A complete sellout (of an 11,000+ person football stadium) over 30 hours before kickoff. Even students can’t get into the game.

  2. Vic says:

    Last year there was college soccer on ESPNU and CBSN, this year I haven’t seen any just women’s college soccer. Its unfortunate.

  3. Matt says:

    Request to list the home team first as everyone else in soccer does. Plus that will give the proper context to each match.

    Big Ten Network has men’s college soccer this weekend.
