Soccer Previews: IU vs. NU on BTN tonight

Here we are in the final week of the Big Ten regular season and just as everybody expected the defending champion Northwestern Wildcats and seven-time national champion Indiana Hoosiers are battling for the championship – the two teams play tonight at 8 p.m. ET on 8 p.m. ET on BTN/BTN2GO. Only, it’s not quite that simple as Michigan State and Penn State are alive as well. Northwestern can grab the outright title with a win in Bloomington, but that would require the Wildcats to find the back of the net, something they haven’t done in three games (0-2-1). Although, they

Penn State Sweeps Iowa

The top-ranked Penn State women’s volleyball team (21-1, 11-0 Big Ten) earned a 3-0 (25-15, 25-19, 25-15) win at Iowa Wednesday night. Junior Deja McClendon led all players with 11 kills and 12 digs. Read full recap at Watch highlights now and jump inside for Northwestern men’s soccer video coverage. After controlling the tempo for most of its scoreless contest against Northern Illinois Wednesday night at Lakeside Field, Northwestern was stunned by a goal from the visitors just 45 seconds into the first overtime period. On a dead sprint and fighting off Northwestern defenders, Charlie Oliver ripped a dipping

Soccer Previews: Race leaders make their move

As we enter the second half of Big Ten play, a clear hierarchy has been established in the conference. At 3-0 and 2-0 respectively, perennial national power Indiana and defending Big Ten champion Northwestern are firmly in the apex of the Big Ten soccer pyramid. Penn State, Michigan and Michigan State are battling it out in the middle class with a win apiece, while Wisconsin and Ohio State are sitting in the base winless searching for answers. The Hoosiers took care of business last weekend at home against the hapless Badgers. Now, with the Hoosiers having the weekend off of

Soccer Report: My thoughts at the midway point

It’s halftime, if you will, so let’s review. It seems crazy, but we’re halfway through conference play already. So with that being said, I think it’s suitable to sit back and reflect on where each of our seven teams is at this point. See my first-half analysis for every Big Ten team in this post. INDIANA HOOSIERS At 9-2-1, and 3-0 in conference play, Todd Yeagley must be pleased with how the season has played out thus far. From a coaches standpoint, Yeagley will be more pleased that his side has yet to concede in the Big Ten. Eriq Zavaleta

Soccer preview: Where is Big Ten race headed?

Week 2 of Big Ten competition saw three hard-fought games that needed more than 90 minutes of play to be decided. It showed that there is not much separating each team in the conference and that many games are going to come down to one shot, one save, or one executed set piece. So, no matter the records, easy games are few and far between in the Big Ten with only two games having been decided by more than one goal so far. Having said that, through two weeks not much has changed in the overall picture of what was expected based on non-conference play.

Weekly preview: Big Ten soccer begins

With the Big Ten season set to kick off this weekend, it’s time to check out the upcoming match-ups and see who may be equipped to give their coach a Gatorade shower this fall. In four years of playing college soccer in the Big Ten at Northwestern and one year of observing it, you begin to notice trends as to why certain teams win the title in a given year. In my estimation, there are four key factors that usually determine the results each season: a stud goalkeeper who is ideally tall (See: Miller, Tyler), an organized and disciplined defense,

Soccer Report: Here comes Big Ten play

Can you believe it? Big Ten conference play is only a few days away. As we approach week one, I must say that from a distance it looks like the tectonic plates in Big Ten country sat still over the past eight months. But if you use your microscope, you’ll see that those plates are slowly gathering momentum. Michigan may be 2-4-0, but I think new head coach Chaka Daley is beginning to see his coaching mindset take shape on the pitch. Three of the Wolverines four losses have come against Top 20 teams, and Michigan lost by a single

Weekly preview: Tune-ups lead to Big Ten games

The Big Ten men’s soccer season is right around the corner, but the teams have one last weekend of non-conference games to shape their squad and prepare for the grind that has come to characterize Big Ten soccer. This upcoming weekend, the seven schools that represent the conference have matches that may not count toward the Big Ten standings (see standings at, but they will be important come NCAA tournament time. While the season is young, a win against a quality opponent on the road or a crushing defeat at home could be the game to swing a team’s
