No. 13 West Virginia (5-0-1, 2-0) at No. 15 USF (4-2, 2-0)
When: Tonight, 7:30
Where: USF Soccer Stadium
The story: USF is coming off back-to-back Big East victories to Notre Dame and Marquette and is looking for continued success tonight against another Big East opponent, West Virginia. Both the Bulls and the Mountaineers are experienced teams, with 10 starters from 2005 returning to each team. The two teams are closely matched and very defensive. Neither team has scored more than twice in a game this year, and with two of the premier goalkeepers in the Big East squaring off, tonight’s game looks to be a tight, competitive game as well. USF’s Dane Brenner was chosen as the Big East Goalkeeper of the Week, and West Virginia’s Nick Noble was granted the same award for the week ending Sept. 4. Brenner was also named to the Soccer America Team of the Week.
The Bulls also face Big East foe Pittsburgh on Sunday at 1 p.m. at the USF Soccer Stadium. The Panthers have just one win this season, and USF beat Pittsburgh last season, 1-0, in their first-ever meeting.
Keep an eye on: forward Jordan Seabrook. With several Big East awards under his belt, including his recent appearance on the Big East Honor Roll, Seabrook leads all USF players in shots (20), shots on goal (11) and goals (3).
