This weekend's slate of MLS action features a plethora of great match-ups, but one of the most intriguing to watch will be rookies and former college teammates Ike Opara and Zack Schilawski.

The two first-round picks and former Wake Forest standouts are coming off unforgettable weeks and must now battle each other when Opara's San Jose Earthquakes play host to Schilawski's Revolution.

I wrote a feature on Opara and Schilawski for Fox Soccer and it provides some insight into their games, their friendly rivalry, Opara's unusual commute to and from work as well as Schilawski's explanation for his draft day mix-up.
