Games To Watch.

The B1G vs. ACC Challenge: It’s no secret that there is a LIVELY discussion on Lax Twitter about whether the ACC or the Big Ten is the best conference in D1 this year. With 3 inter-conference games on the Big Board today, there are a lot of conference bragging rights on the line this afternoon.

Additionally, while UVA vs. Hopkins, Ohio State vs. Notre Dame, and Maryland vs. North Carolina are sure to be entertaining match-ups, these games could play a large role in how many at-large bids each conference gets on Selection Sunday.

The ACC could make a B1G statement (Ed. Note: Pun intended), and ensure the conference gets at least 3 at-large bids on Selection Sunday, with a sweep today. The ACC already has a good record vs. the Big Ten this year. Indeed, despite the conference's strong season in 2017 so far, the Big Ten is only 1-3 this year vs. the ACC (Notre Dame has two wins vs. Michigan & MD, and Syracuse beat Hopkins last weekend).

JHU's win vs. UNC earlier this season is the Big Ten's lone win against the ACC in 2017. A big day for the ACC would give the conference a very strong record versus the Big Ten, which would certainly go a long way on Selection Sunday in a month and a half. Needless to say, today is a really important day for both conferences.

Denver vs. Towson: This is a rematch of Towson’s stunning first round upset over the Pioneers in last year’s tournament. While Denver dropped down in the polls this week, the Pios are still a top 6 team in the country. Nevertheless, their game versus Ohio State last weekend exposed some weaknesses. Towson has a legitimate chance at winning this one, but they also got thumped by Ohio State last week, so they have some areas in need of improvement as well.

Syracuse vs. Duke: Syracuse is 1-0 in the ACC this year. This will be Duke’s first conference game of the season. Both teams are coming into this contest with some momentum. While Duke is currently riding a 5-game winning streak, the Orange have only lost once this season and are on a 3-game winning streak coming into this game. Syracuse has demonstrated great mental toughness this season, having endured 5 straight 1-goal games (4-1 record). That mental toughness will be tested today in what should be a fun one in the Dome this afternoon.

18 Stripes with a great preview of Notre Dame vs. Ohio State.

The #2 Fighting Irish play the #4 Ohio State Buckeyes this Saturday at 2:00, Arlotta Stadium, ESPN3. Another top 5 matchup for the 4-1 Irish. Now that women’s hoops has dusted off the Buckeyes, let’s hope men’s lacrosse can do the same.

Oh boy! Princeton vs. Yale was a feisty one.

Maryland has an extra teammate for its game vs. the Tar Heels today.

Another great weekend preview by Jordie over at Barstool Sports.

Brendan Bomberry discusses the upcoming Duke game on Cuse TV.

Man can’t live on lacrosse alone. So here’s Adam’s piece on Hollywood not getting the memo that America’s done with the 3D movie trend.

Eight years after James Cameron’s Avatar wowed moviegoers with its much-hyped 3D technology, the American 3D movie bubble is deflating. As the film industry makes more and more 3D movies, fewer and fewer Americans are willing to pay the lofty price of admission. The 3D US box office in 2016 was down 8% from 2015, according to an annual report by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA). And that’s despite Hollywood releasing 12 more 3D movies than in the year before.

BOSS Petro was on ABC 2 News’ “In the Crease” to chat about his career, recruiting, rule changes and plenty more.

Song Of The Day.

Hit it, Taylor.

I’ll see you out there!!
