GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here’s everything you need to know for February 3, 2020.

College Crosse News

Check out our Crossecast review of Week 0.

Say, if we aren’t going to get our wishes for SATURDAY. NIGHT. LACROSSE., then why not bring the lacrosse to Saturday night? Welcome to what we’re aiming for our new format for recap podcasts on COLLEGE CROSSECAST, and we start by breaking down the opening day of the 2020 NCAA Lacrosse season.

I’m joined by Safe and Jake as we do a rapid recap of today’s action, which featured an upset win out of Air Force and some impressive performances coming out of Penn State, Maryland, and UNC.

Here is the Weekend Scorecard for Week 0 with all the scores & highlights from this weekend. For your convenience you can find the Big Board with links to team sites, box scores, & winning team recaps directly below.

Duke men’s lacrosse upset by Air Force at home in season opener.

Duke led for nearly 51 minutes in its 2020 season opener, but in the end, the only score that matters is the one when the clock hits zero. And Saturday afternoon, it was Air Force that came out on top.

Here’s a great video from Towson.

Utah with a nice 16-10 win over Bellarmine.

The University of Utah lacrosse team started their season at Rice-Eccles Stadium on Saturday, Feb. 1, where they took home a 16-10 win. The Utes took on the Bellarmine Knights from Kentucky.

Here are some highlights from Penn State’s win over Lafayette.

Chris Gray was electric in his UNC debut.

Who stood out?

In his UNC debut, Gray was phenomenal from the start. He scored four of the team’s first six goals and added two assists. A 2019 Tewaaraton Award nominee, he comes to Chapel Hill with hefty expectations. He was named an Inside Lacrosse Preseason Media First-Team All-American as well as a member of the Preseason All-ACC Team.

Hear what coach Desko said after Syracuse’s last scrimmage of the preseason.

Maryland exploded on offense on Saturday versus High Point.

Eight seconds into the game, Maryland men’s lacrosse midfielder Roman Puglise dodged down the left alley and rifled a lefty-shot past High Point’s Parker Green. Puglise’s goal was the first of 23 on the day, the highest for a Terps team since February 2013.

Here’s a nice hype video from Stony Brook.

What’s Up, New PhilaJersey?

Shout out to former Eagles head coach Andy Reid on winning his first Super Bowl last night with the Chiefs.

“MAN ALIVE!” Andrew Walter Reid bellowed from his toes as he marched through his Kansas City Chiefs locker room, glowing like a teenager who had just scored a date with the prettiest girl in school. Reid had just finished handing out credit for this epic Super Bowl victory as easily as one would hand out a business card at a job fair, even giving a shoutout to Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie, the billionaire who fired him.

Let’s gooooo: Punxsutawney Phil predicts an early spring after not seeing his shadow.

Punxsutawney Phil, Pennsylvania’s most famous groundhog, awoke this morning and did not see his shadow which means that — according to legend — an early spring is on the way.
