After a week that got the lacrosse world talking about a new program's first victory, a huge road victory for a top 10 team, a nailbiter for a dark horse contender, and . . . snow, it's time to really get the ball rolling on the 2013 season. This week there's fun things such as neutral site events down south, some nationally televised games, and another top five matchup in Durham, North Carolina. Some things to note about this week's FACEOFF:
- The media polls are the same this week as the media poll won't feature another round of voting until next week.
- There's a bit of a grey area on the next few weeks' infographics as we wait on everyone to play and for the NCAA to put up their leaderboards for both team and individual statistics. But don't worry, once they do, it's gonna be awesome (or something)!
- We have a full slate of "7 to Watch" that highlights the Moe's Southwest Grill Lacrosse Classic (welcome to Moe's! (whatever that is)) in Jacksonville, Florida. Throughout the season, we'll color the grids for big neutral site events to help you know that your team's not playing at your team's stadium but instead in some other exotic location. Or a high school. Us Long Islanders love to randomly put college games at high schools.
So, let's set you up for the upcoming week of lacrosse with THE FACEOFF.
