The University of Evansville men’s soccer program released an ambitious 2014 schedule on Wednesday, highlighted by nonconference home matches in October against Indiana University and the University of Kentucky.
The Aces will play five matches against teams that participated in last year’s NCAA tournament, three against teams that finished in the top 50 of the Ratings Percentage Index (RPI) and nine against teams that finished in the top 100 of the RPI.
“We always pride ourselves in looking to test our team against the top teams in the nation, and we believe our 2014 schedule will do so,” head coach Mike Jacobs said in a press release.
