28 27 games today, so strap in for another long, manic Saturday. (Update: Hofstra vs. Georgetown was just postponed to a date to be determined) One thing before we go any further, a handful of games have changed their start times or moved their game to Sunday. I tried to make sure I put in the correct time for the games below, but if you see any errors, please let us know in the comments and we’ll try to fix things accordingly.

Games To Watch
- Princeton vs. Johns Hopkins: Thanks to Ryan, there isn’t a man, woman, or child who doesn’t know that unranked Princeton defeated (at the time) #3 ranked Johns Hopkins 18-7 last season. Hopefully the Jays come to play today so we don’t have a repeat of that disaster from last year.
- Penn State vs. Penn: The battle for PA bragging rights is going down at Franklin Field this afternoon. Penn is coming off a huge win over Duke last week, while the Nittany Lions need to bounce back after losing to Robert Morris last weekend or find themselves with a 2-3 record. This is the 37th meeting between the two schools in a series that took a hiatus from 1977-2015, however, the two have played each other every year since 2015, with PSU owning a 2-1 series advantage in the last three meetings.
- Villanova vs. Delaware: Villanova is one of the hottest teams in the country, but Delaware is 3-0 for the first time since 2011, playing at home, and looks really good. This will be the 23rd meeting between the two schools (series is tied 11-11), with Villanova having won six of the last ten meetings. Delaware does play strong at home, though. as they’ve won six of their eleven series wins at home, oh, and their head coach and bench press a buick.

Game Of The Day
Maryland vs. Notre Dame: While this game doesn’t usually get many style points, I’m still very excited for the match-up nonetheless. This is only the 11th meeting between the two (series tied 5-5) and the first time the Fighting Irish will be playing in College Park since 2004.
Although the all-time series is tied, Notre Dame has been on a run as of late. Indeed, the Fighting Irish have won the last four meetings and five of the past six. Additionally, Notre Dame hasn’t allowed Maryland to score more than six goals in any of the last four meetings, including last year when the Terps offense only scored 4 goals in a 5-4 loss to Notre Dame.
The one good thing going for the Terps today is that they are 2-0 vs. the Irish in College Park, with wins in 2004 and 1995. Hopefully some home cooking and sleeping in their own beds helps wake up their offense.
