Big Ten Network To Televise Both Penn State Soccer Postseason Openers

Penn State men’s and women’s soccer’s postseason openers will be televised nationally on the Big Ten Network this weekend.

No. 2 Penn State men’s soccer will kick off the weekend against No. 7 Ohio State in the Big Ten quarterfinals on Saturday, April 10. The Nittany Lions and Buckeyes will get things underway at Jeffrey Field at noon.

Following the men’s quarterfinal game, the women’s team will host its Big Ten “Regional Weekend” final on Sunday. The Nittany Lions will face the winner of Indiana and Michigan at 2 p.m.

This is the men’s fourth game of the year to feature on the Big Ten Network and the women’s third.

The channel has showcased some of both team’s best soccer all year, including an Ally Schlegel masterclass against Minnesota that earned her Big Ten weekly honors. The network also featured the men’s team in one of the most exciting games of the year, a 2-2 draw at Maryland to end the regular season slate.

Both teams have trips to the Big Ten semifinals on the line. If the men win on Saturday, they would advance to host either Michigan or Michigan State on Wednesday, April 14.

The women would also host their potential Big Ten semifinal, which would be played on Thursday, April 15, against a team to be determined. All of next week’s playoff games are set to be aired on the Big Ten Network.
