WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22 -- Go Big or Go Home
The highly anticipated day is finally in sight... the start of the BIG TEN season! Every year, our team gets fired up and ready to go all out in our competitive conference. One can never take a single team in the Big Ten lightly for each competition can make or break a teams chance at wearing that Big Ten championship ring or snagging a spot in the NCAA Tournament. Over the next month our team will be working everyday to accomplish these goals and compete at our highest level to be a dominant force in the conference.
The start of our Big Ten season is exciting enough, however just to add a little more anticipation for this weekend, our schedule has us opening the conference against our biggest rivals ... the awkward tree nut, AKA the Ohio State Buckeyes. While they may have one of the lamest mascots ever, we cannot take this team lightly. We are going out there fast and physical this Sunday to win, not just with style (by this I mean soccer finesse AND our team's gorgeous looks), but we really send a message to OSU and the rest of the Big Ten that we are a real threat in this highly competitive conference. The game will take place Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m. in our amazing stadium. We can't wait to see all of our amazing fans this Sunday to help cheer us on as we go for a big win against OSU! HAIL!
