A clash of potential national soccer powers will be on tap tonight when McPherson College’s teams open their seasons hosting Benedictine University at McPherson Stadium.
A women’s game starts the action at 5:00, with the men playing at 7:30.
The men’s game will be a true measuring stick for the Bulldogs, who received some votes for the NAIA Top 25. Benedictine did enter the rankings as it’s No. 13.
The Bulldogs’ first three games are against teams either ranked in the national poll or receiving votes. They host University of Texas at Brownsville at 11 a.m. Monday, a team that also received national votes. On Saturday, Sept. 6, Mac entertains Midland University at 3 p.m., which opens the season ranked No. 19 nationally.
