Gamedays and Gameday - FRIDAY CARDINAL COUPLE


It's time for the Friday round-up of events to help you make plans for your weekend.

Soccer - Women

You kinda missed one, already.  Last night, Women's Soccer beat Gardner-Webb 4-0 at Lynn Stadium.  2 goals in the first half by Allison Whitfield, and one each to Mollie Rouse and Kaela Dickerman in the second half.  The team gets to a 6-2 overall record and start into their conference slate on Sunday at Boston College.  They're already halfway to the 12-win season that Case predicted...good news for Case...but the road does get a little consistently harder at this point.

Sunday is a 1pm start, and it is available on the ACC Network Extra

Soccer - Men

On the road, Ken Lolla's team will play at 7pm at Syracuse.  This one also on the ACC Network
Extra.  They'll be back in action Tuesday evening at Lynn when IUPUI comes to visit with a 7pm start, available on the streaming as well.  I haven't been following the men closely this season, they're 3-1-1 overall, with the only loss coming to a very good Wake Forest team.  Not a bad start for them, I don't think.

Field Hockey

Tonight, conference play gets underway with a bang.  At Duke, with a 6pm start, available on streaming.  This one is always fun with former Cardinals skipper Pam Bustin at the helm at Duke.  Certain to be a good game.  Just the one game for the stick Cards this weekend.


Not yet to conference play, but still facing a gauntlet in the non-conference schedule, I'll be headed down the road this evening to Lexington to watch the match at Kentucky.  A 7pm start, this one is on the SEC Network (still part of the ESPN world, so available through the same ESPN streaming app, but also with the bonus of being on the linear network this time).  This one will be a big challenge for the Cards as Kentucky is ranked 12th in the country right now.

Kennesaw State will be playing Kentucky on Saturday, but then will join Louisville at Cardinal Arena for a 3pm start Sunday.  Available on ACC streaming (picking up on the theme, here?)

Who Have I Missed

Men's golf will be in Durham, NC for a tournament this weekend, with Men's Tennis also in the general region at the Duke Invitational.  I still feel like I'm missing something...Oh right!


Football hosts Clemson Saturday.  The actual game will be at 8pm on ABC, but, of course, you can tune into ESPN's College Gameday from the lawn in front of Grawemeyer Hall and The Thinker statue from 9 until noon.  Of course, at 11, you'll surely be switching over to Crescent Hill Radio to catch The Cardinal Couple Radio Hour from 11 to noon.

So there's your weekend capsule, with plenty to keep Cards fans busy as we're in the thick of Fall Sports season.
