The UVa Men’s lacrosse team has a lot to play for Saturday when #20 Ohio State rolls into Klockner stadium on Saturday. Coming off a thrilling 11-9 victory over then-#14 Cornell in the Face-Off Classic was a nice rebound after dropping one to Syracuse the week before. Now a tough home battle against an Ohio State team UVa has not faced since 2001.

To keep the momentum the Hoos will have to rely on last week’s ACC Defensive Player of the Week Adam Ghitelman and the emergence of some fresh faces at midfield including Colin Briggs and Rob Emery. It will be tough sledding against the Buckeyes, who have already pulled off one of the bigger upsets of the season, knocking off North Carolina when they were #3 in the country. They also boast a stout defense, allowing just over 7 goals per game on the season.

The game is slated for 3 pm and you can follow live stats at There will also be a live blog running on
