Aug 15, 2013
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The Indiana men's soccer team will make at least four appearances on the Big Ten Network this season, the conference office announced today.
The Hoosiers kick off the BTN's coverage of men's soccer on Sunday, Sept. 1, when they play host to UCLA at 2 p.m. ET. Indiana, ranked No. 1 in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America preseason poll, face the No. 9 Bruins for the 18th time and hold a 10-7 lead in the series. IU has won the last four meetings, including a 5-1 victory in their last matchup in 2010.
Indiana opens Big Ten play on the BTN on Sunday, Sept. 29, when it plays host to Ohio State at 3 p.m. ET. The Hoosiers were 2-0 winners over the Buckeyes in Columbus last season and have won the last two meetings.
The Hoosiers welcome Penn State to Bloomington for a televised matchup on Sunday, Oct. 6, at 2:30p.m. ET. Indiana won a thriller over the Nittany Lions in State College last season with Harrison Petts' goal in the second overtime giving IU the 1-0 victory.
Indiana's road matchup at Michigan on Saturday, Oct. 26, at 7 p.m. ET wraps up the regular-season television slate for the Hoosiers. Michigan was a 2-1 winner in Bloomington last season, just the second-ever win for the Wolverines over the Hoosiers.
Once again this year the Big Ten Network will also have live broadcasts of the Big Ten Tournament semifinals and finals, held this year in Columbus, Ohio on Nov. 15 and 17.
