College Lacrosse Schedule for March 8, 2014

TV listings, streams, live stats, and an open thread. It's the greatest thing in the history of history.

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

There are 25 games today, putting about three-quarters of Division I's members in action. There aren't a ton of big ticket matchups today, but there are a bunch of really solid games wrapped in intrigue and consequence.

Here are your three highlights for today:

  • Albany at Massachusetts: The Great Danes -- while remaining competitive -- have spit the bit in its two games against notable competition: A one-goal, overtime loss to Syracuse opened Albany's season and a one-goal freak show loss to Drexel followed the Danes' date against the Orange. Albany recalibrated its universe with a win against Harvard, but the team's trip to Amherst this afternoon marks a return to playing a strong opponent that can create all kinds of problems for the Great Danes. Albany needs a win against a team of the Minutemen's caliber; a loss today would put Albany at only 1-3 on the season, creating questions around whether the Great Danes have the balance to contend with the nation's better concerns.
  • Denver v. Notre Dame // St. John's v. Syracuse: Two the day's biggest games will happen at neutral site locations in non-traditional areas: In California, the Pioneers and Irish will clash in a contrast of styles; in Georgia, the Orange and Johnnies will attempt to melt the scoreboard. Denver-Notre Dame holds bigger top-of-the-polls impact, but Syracuse-St. John's is arguably a more pressing matchup for both teams: The Orange are bleeding and St. John's smells blood in the water. Syracuse is in the midst of a horrifically difficult slate and the Johnnies are entering a stretch -- after facing the Orange -- that features Georgetown, Hofstra, and Stony Brook. This is a big spot for both teams, and both desperately need a victory.
  • Lehigh at Bucknell: The situation at Lewisburg is pretty simple:

    Loyola 2-0
    Army 1-0
    Navy 2-1
    Lehigh 1-1
    Colgate 1-1
    Bucknell 1-1
    Lafayette 1-2
    Holy Cross 0-2
    Boston University 0-1
    There are all kinds of implications in Lehigh-Bucknell: Two teams attempting to climb the table to the positions they were expected to hold; tiebreaking ramifications; and simply creating some forward momentum with each team seemingly punching the accelerator while the transmission is in neutral.
