Both Rutgers men’s and Rutgers Women’s soccer will be playing championship soccer this weekend in Piscataway.
The Men will host Indiana in the Big Ten Championship game on Sunday afternoon at 12 noon. It will be the first ever trip for Rutgers men’s soccer to the Big Ten title game in program history.
Rutgers advanced to the final after a thrilling 2-1 victory over Ohio State in the semi-finals. Leading the way this season for Rutgers has been High Point senior transfer MD Myers, who has exploded this year offensively with 13 goals for RU.
Jackson Temple (six goals) has also had an outstanding year, and scored the first goal of the semi-finals game against the Buckeyes.
Freshman goalie Ciaran Dalton has been incredible, allowing only 18 goals in 14 games played this year for a 1.27 goals against average.
We will have a special Fox Sports on the Road Preview on Saturday morning at 8:30 a.m.

This season the Scarlet Knights jumped out to a 9-0 start, before finishing the year 13-4-2.
