Soccer, some field hockey honors, and Big Ten play in volleyball begins
Soccer fans with the Big Ten Network have had and will continue to have a good week in terms of watching Penn State’s two teams.
The No. 17 ranked women’s team is home at 6 p.m. Thursday against No. 4 Rutgers.
Coming off a 0-0 draw at Indiana to open conference play, the women are now 5-1-2 and will also be home at Jeffrey Field on Sunday at noon for another conference game against Illinois.
Meanwhile, the Nittany Lion men were nationally televised in a match this past Tuesday. They stayed unbeaten in Big Ten play with a 3-3 tie against No. 9 Maryland.
The Lions led 2-1 at the half and 3-2 late before settling for the draw.
You can check out the highlights for Penn State below and see them on the field Sunday when they play host to Akron at 4 p.m. as the second half of the mens and womens doubleheader at Jeffrey Field.
