These are the best matches the weekend has to offer. Yeah-e-yeah, yeah-e-yeah, yeah-e-yeah (Rihanna voice) …
No. 5 UC Santa Barbara vs. No. 10 UCLA (Friday): One of the top rivalry games in college soccer. There will be tortillas, Bruins, and cool new jerseys.
No. 1 Florida State vs. Jackson State (Friday): Jackson State hasn’t scored a goal all season. Not ONE. And they’re 0-8. And they’re about to play the top team in the country. Put the children to bed and cover your eyes …
No. 29 Wisconsin vs. No. 39 Michigan State (Friday): Great Big Ten matchup here. The Badgers have historically had great success playing the Spartans at home but this Michigan State group is on a roll.
No. 20 Santa Clara vs. Washington State (Sunday): The unranked Cougars have proven to be sneaky dangerous. Just ask UCLA who had to escape with a 0-0 result against them Thursday despite hanging out with Kevin Garnett earlier in the week. Beware Santa Clara.
