College Lacrosse: Top Three Matchups to Watch


No. 1 UNC vs. No. 5 Notre Dame: Saturday, 4/10 @ 3pm ET on ACC Network (ESPN)

Arguably the most anticipated matchup of the weekend, North Carolina looks to continue their undefeated season, with senior Jamie Ortega leading the way with 65 points (48 goals, 17 assists).

The Tarheels are coming off of a dominant 17-6 win against then-No. 2 Syracuse, with Ortega scoring a season-high eight points. That performance earned her IWLCA’s National Offensive Player of the Week and ACC co-Offensive Player of the Week. Meanwhile, Notre Dame is led by senior Samantha Lynch with 32 points (26 goals, 6 assists). They look to continue their recent success, including a win against then-No. 7 Virginia. 


No. 3 Syracuse vs. No. 6 Virginia: Saturday, 4/10 @ 11 am ET on ACC Network (ESPN)

No. 3 Syracuse looks to bounce back against No. 6 Virginia after a tough loss to UNC. The Orange are led by junior Meaghan Tyrrell with 44 points (28 goals, 16 assists). Virginia is also looking for a win after a close loss to Notre Dame last weekend. The Cavaliers are led by senior Taylor Regan with 31 points (19 goals, 12 assists). It’s the two’s first – and only – matchup in the regular season. 


No. 2 Northwestern vs. Ohio State: Thursday, 4/8 @ 7 pm ET on BTN

Northwestern’s Sunday game against Ohio State was moved to Thursday after their game against Michigan was postponed due to COVID-19 protocols. The Wildcats look to continue their dominance after taking down Maryland 20-10 on Monday and clinching at least a share of the Big Ten regular season title. This will be the two teams’ second meeting after the Wildcats dominated the Buckeyes 23-7 in their season opener.
