College Soccer: Indiana and Notre Dame clash in tonight's marquee match-up


Notre Dame fell from the ranks of the unbeaten last weekend, but they will have a chance to re-assert their status as one of the top teams in the country when they take on Indiana tonight (7pm) in a battle of Midwestern powers.

The Hoosiers, No. 12 in the SBI Top 25, will look to hand the Fighting Irish their second straight loss. Notre Dame, currently No. 5 in the SBI Top 25, will look to shake off last Saturday's loss to Louisville. They will ride the efforts of midfield ace Dillon Powers and forward Ryan Finley to break down a strong Hoosiers defense that has posted five shutouts in eight matches. Eriq Zavaleta leads Indiana's attack with seven goals in eight matches.

No. 9 Marquette will put their unbeaten record on the line tonight when they take on Wisconsin, while West Virginia will look to avoid the upset against a struggling Iona side that is coming off an impressive win against Monmouth.

(12) Indiana vs. (5) Notre Dame, 7pm
