Friday Kicks: College Cup in Santa Barbara tonight & more

i-6e66bac4c56a083fd685bff2afa5b66a-385552569c.jpgWe’re down to the final four in men’s college soccer with the two NCAA semifinals scheduled for tonight at 5:30 between North Carolina and Louisville and at 8 o’clock between Akron and Michigan.

Both games are live on Fox Soccer Channel ESPNU and ESPN2 respectively , but if you go tonight (plenty of tickets are still available) bundle up and hope the forecast high winds don’t ruin the games.

The final is at 1 p.m. Sunday on ESPN2.

Meanwhile, American involvement in the FIFA World Club championship is over, Mexico’s Pachuca and its three Americans (including former Galaxy striker Herculez Gomez) seeing their season end with a 1-0 loss to the Congo’s TP Mazembe this morning.

As usual there’s tons of televised football this weekend on TV and online, but really there is only one game that matters this “weekend:” EPL leaders Arsenal facing second-place Manchester United at noon Monday on ESPN2. (Well, OK, third-place Chelsea against fifth-placed Spurs at 8 a.m. Sunday on Fox Soccer Channel is just a notch below that).

For all the games this weekend click the Live Soccer TV link at top right.

    “Death with 1000 Passes” on the T-shirt of an Akron fan best described a wonderful display by a great college team. Well attended, generally well played double header on a great campus setting with some fantastic goals. Some fine talent on display well worth tracking on the up-coming Super Draft. Michigan’s Justin Meram’s goal on a solo run was THE goal of the night.

    Well worth the trip.

    And Nick, stick to soccer forcasting cause NO high winds were blowing on a clear night.
