College soccer week five preview

The Army-Navy Cup at Talen Energy Stadium highlights a full slate of college games in week 5.



Talen Energy Stadium will again host one of the greatest rivalries in all of college sports tonight with the fifth edition of the Army-Navy Cup.

The Patriot League rivals enter the match with identical 2-3-1 records as they open conference play. Navy is 2-1-1 in previous Army-Navy Cup matches and leads the all-time series with a 40-28-14 record.

The game kicks off at 7 p.m. Tickets are available here.

Saturday will be a full day for teams from the region with Temple and Villanova both playing on the road (Owls at UConn and Villanova at Marquette) and the West Philly derby between Penn and Drexel at 7 p.m.

The ACC will again feature some of the week’s biggest matches with No. 3 Notre Dame and No. 2 Syracuse and No. 19 Virginia Tech playing No. 7 Clemson tonight, followed by a match between No. 13 Louisville and No. 16 Virginia on Saturday.

Newly-minted No. 1 Maryland will have a tough test with No. 22 Michigan State coming to College Park tonight and fellow Big 10 power Indiana will put their No. 4 ranking on the line against unbeaten Butler, which moved up to No. 10 in the polls this week.

No. 12 Creighton will face another tough test with No. 17 Loyola Chicago coming to town aiming to keep their perfect 6-0-0 record intact.
