On this second Saturday of the college lacrosse season there is a boast load of games, and while some are early season cupcakes others are really good matchups. This weekend even has a fair share of games where we actually could see an upset of sorts. 

Marquee Games

Virginia @ Loyola

This game is always one of the bets early season games, if not one of the best of the year. Loyola and Virginia both have powerful offenses and this one will be a very fun game to watch. In the past we have seen these two go down to the wire, and even into overtime. Pegged as the best game of the weekend, you won’t want to miss it.

Johns Hopkins @ Towson

Both squads will be opening their season with this Baltimore battle. The Blue Jays come into this game with a strong defensive identity and looking to see what they can be on offense. The Tigers in a similar boat as they will be searching for who can produce on offense after losing a few pieces, and a few down years for them. 

Robert Morris @ Penn State

The Colonials knocked off the Nittany Lions last season, can they do it again? Penn State comes off a great performance where they downed Villanova. Penn State’s offense may be the best in the country with Grant Ament leading the charge. Robert Morris comes into this game with a lot of firepower back from their NCAA tournament run last season. We will get to see if the Colonials can bring the heat again here in 2019. 

Boston U @ Ohio State
Vermont @ Navy
Air Force @ Denver
