College Soccer Weekend Preview: Syracuse-UNC and Clemson-Wake Forest headline packed slate

Just one week after falling to then-SBI No. 4 Notre Dame, new No. 4 Syracuse faces another difficult challenge against No. 2 North Carolina to open the weekend slate on Friday night.

Another top-10 match-up will feature simultaneously on Friday as No. 7 Clemson welcome No. 6 Wake Forest. Two more top-25 matches also kick off at the same time, as No. 15 Virginia and No. 16 Virginia Tech clash in a big-time in-state rivalry, while No. 24 Boston College receive a visit from No. 12 Louisville.

Saturday also sees a slew of top-25 teams in action, led by No. 5 Denver taking on Eastern Illinois in the early afternoon. Fellow top-10 teams No. 9 Creighton and No. 10 Loyola-Chicago also feature on Saturday, taking on St. John’s and Central Arkansas respectively.

Sunday features just three top-25 teams in play on an all-Pac 12 day, led by a battle between No. 18 San Diego State and No. 25 Washington. Also locked in conference battles are No. 11 UCLA against Oregon State and No. 17 Stanford vs. a difficult California team.
