Mavericks Announce Toughest Soccer Season in Team History

Omaha men’s soccer head coach Bob Warming announced the 2019 schedule on Wednesday. The slate will be one of the most challenging the Mavericks have faced in their history.

The 2019 season features five opponents who ranked within the Top 50 RPI last season – St. Mary’s (Calif.) (8), Denver (17), Air Force (27), Michigan (28) and Creighton (31). All but Creighton appeared in the 2018 NCAA Tournament.

The Mavericks begin the campaign with the Champions Challenge exhibition match against UCLA on Aug. 24 at Caniglia Field. Other home matches include Columbia (Sept. 6), UNLV (Sept. 9), Michigan (Sept. 13), CSUN (Sept. 27), Western Illinois (Oct. 5), Purdue Fort Wayne (Oct. 12), Bradley (Oct. 15) and Oral Roberts (Nov. 2).
