As always with fall sports there's plenty going on both on and away from campus this weekend. Fortunately for us, there's plenty happening on campus or in town.
Women's Golf stays in town- sort of. They play at home at the UofL Golf Club, located in Simpsonville, as they host the Cardinal Cup.
Women's Soccer kicks off (literally and figuratively) a double header between them and their men counterpart at 5:00. The #14 Cards (Coaches Poll) take on #9 Duke. Historically, this match-up has favored the Blue Devils, who hold a 2-0-4 series advantage. USWNT star Rose Lavelle will be in attendance for the double header. Lavelle will hold a Q&A session at halftime of the women's match and sign autographs in the break between the two matches.
As mentioned right above, the men's soccer team is also at home. They will host Boston College
roughly 30 minutes after the conclusion of the women's match. It's a great 2-for-1 for a nice night out at Dr. Mark & Cindy Lynnn Stadium.
Let's pray for NO OVERTIME tomorrow night and please no double overtime. For those of us sticking around for both matches and have an early Saturday morning we want to get out of Lynn Stadium as soon as possible.
Women's Tennis remains in Tennessee at the ITA Ohio Valley Regional Championships.
Women's Golf continues play in the Cardinal Cup at the UofL Golf Club.
Cross Country heads up into Indiana at Terre Haute for a Pre-Nationals event. The primary goal of the event is to help players qualify for Nationals.
Football hosts Clemson at noon. Paulie and Sonya will be in their normal spot in the Crunch Zone while I'll be all over the field snagging pictures. Keep an eye on a special guest with the Cardinal Marching Band at halftime. No, it's not me. I'm not rejoining the band at UofL.
Women's Golf wraps up play in the Cardinal Cup.
Field Hockey is home for the second straight day, hosting Iowa at 1:00. This is their second-to-last
home game of the year. The #6 Hawkeyes sit one ranking behind the #5 Cards and are 10-3 on the year.
Volleyball gets back into action after a Friday night off. They'll travel to Blacksburg for a match against Virginia Tech. The Hokies sit dead last in the ACC at 0-6 in conference play and 7-12 overall.
No word yet on Melanie McHenry's status after a left knee injury forced her off the court at South Bend.
No Cardinal Couple Radio Hour Saturday
I had suggested an hour-long show of replaying the interviews I did this summer with members of the UofL WBB squad. Management gave me a "thumbs down".
Next week is a 3:30 football kickoff, so you can expect us back in studio then!
Call it our pre-Halloween break or the pre-playoffs pause in broadcasting on WCHQ 100.9 FM.
Or call it George. I don't care. Just don't call roll because all the knuckleheads are absent. The station will still be on the air so, go ahead and listen to the best in local music while you tailgate, attend Field Hockey or try to swim the Ohio.
Happy Friday and Go Cards!
