The Buckeyes’ first three games are scheduled to be played indoors in the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. Seating is limited at the indoor field, so fans are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance to guarantee a spot. The squad opens its season with home game against 2009 NCAA tournament team Villanova Feb. 13. After a road game, the Buckeyes will return home for back-to-back games starting against Massachusetts, another NCAA tournament squad last season, Feb. 27. Ohio State and Penn State, the only Big Ten schools to sponsor men’s lacrosse, will meet March 6 for the unofficial “Big Ten Championship.”
The team is slated to host Albany March 13 in the first meeting between the schools and Denver April 17 outdoors in Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. (Note the date for the game vs. Albany has been changed from earlier schedules.) The game against the Pioneers marks the first conference home game for the Buckeyes as members of the ECAC Lacrosse League. The regular-season campaign wraps up with a conference game against league-foe Bellarmine in Ohio Stadium May 1, where the squad’s seniors will be honored.
