No. 1 Syracuse (4-0) at No. 2 Johns Hopkins (2-0)

Site: Homewood Field

Time: 1 p.m.

TV/Radio: Ch 2/WJFK (1300 AM)

Outlook: This is the 15th time since 1994 Hopkins has met the No. 1 team in the country, with the Blue Jays winning seven and losing seven of the previous 14 showdowns. Underclassmen have accounted for 26 of the 27 Hopkins points (17 goals, 10 assists) in the first two games. Syracuse has averaged 16.5 goals in its four games, nearly the total number of goals for Hopkins in two games. The three Orange starting attackmen (Mike Powell, Josh Coffman and Mike Springer) have 38 goals and 20 assists in four games.

No. 4 Loyola (3-0) at No. 18 Notre Dame (1-3)

Site: Moose Krause Stadium, South Bend, Ind.

Time: 1 p.m.

Radio: WNST (1570 AM)

Outlook: Notre Dame has won the past two games against Loyola after losing the first 10 meetings in the series. Loyola will play six of its next seven games on the road. The Greyhounds' "big five" of Mike Sullivan, Stephen Brundage, Chris Summers, Jim Fink and Joey Case has scored 30 of 36 goals and accounted for 16 of 20 assists.

Delaware (2-2) at No. 5 Maryland (4-1)

Site: Byrd Stadium, College Park

Time: 1 p.m.

Outlook: Maryland is taking more shots and scoring more in the new Dave Cottle offense. The Terps are fourth in the nation in goals per game (14). Delaware has lost two games to top 10 teams and beaten two unranked teams.

UMBC (1-2 ) at No. 9 Georgetown (3-0)

Site: Kehoe Field, Washington

Time: 1 p.m.

Outlook: All the Retrievers have to show for the early season is an unimpressive 7-5 victory over Mount St. Mary's, while they have been outscored by a 27-8 total in losses to Navy and Cornell. Georgetown has been sluggish in its three wins over Penn State, Cornell and Ohio State. The Hoyas have been led by A Neal Goldman's seven goals and six assists.

No. 15 Navy (2-2) at Rutgers (1-4)

Site: Rutgers Stadium, Piscataway, N.J.

Time: 1 p.m.

Radio: WNAV (1430 AM)

Outlook: Navy senior A Eddie McKinnon needs one point to reach 100 in his career. Rutgers is having a real down year.

Mount St. Mary's (0-5) at St. Joseph's (0-4)

Site: Finnesey Field, Philadelphia

Time: 2 p.m.

Outlook: The winless Mount finally opens play in a cozy Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference and figures to get its first victory of the year. A weak St. Joseph's is almost off the collegiate lacrosse charts.
