This week we take a quick look at 12 games to be on the lookout for this upcoming weekend. Think of this article as an appetizer to get you ready for a big weekend of lacrosse. It was difficult to narrow this list down to just 12 games, as there is so much good lacrosse on this weekend it was difficult to choose.
Brown vs. Vermont
Vermont looks to get back to .500 while Brown tries to build on their close game with UNC.
#7 Duke vs. #10 Penn
A top ten matchup gives Duke another chance to show that the Jacksonville loss was a fluke.
Navy vs. High Point
A win in this game Navy is back in the ranked discussion, can High Point get back to .500 with one of the toughest OOC schedules in the country?
#19 Loyola vs. #5 Rutgers
A battle of brothers as the Kamish’s duke it out for a marquee win, propelling the victor further up the poles.
#2 Virginia vs. #9 Syracuse
The orange bowl gives Cuse another chance to prove that they’re the real deal this year.
Lehigh vs. #14 Cornell
A must win for Lehigh as they’ve quickly fallen out of the polls.
#4 Notre Dame vs. #3 Georgetown
All second screens will be playing this game in what could be the biggest game of the season so far.
#16 Denver vs. #13 Jacksonville
Despite being ranked lower, Denver is a 2.5 goal favorite, can Jacksonville get a second marquee in just 5 games?
#8 Ohio State vs. Harvard
The Buckeyes are a heavy favorite but Harvard’s physical defense matches up well with the talented OSU attack.
Marquette vs. Utah
A battle of fringe ranked teams will provide some clarity into how good the ASUN could be this year.
#12 North Carolina vs. #11 Johns Hopkins
Can UNC’s defense put 4 quarters together and stop a talented Jays offense.
High Point vs. #7 Duke
One of my favorite matchups year in and year out, the Panthers are always a tough game for the Blue Devils.
