Today's games

No. 2 Virginia (5-1) at No. 5 Maryland (6-1)

Site: Byrd Stadium, College Park

Time: 1 p.m.

Outlook: Maryland has the top defense in the nation (allowing 5.86 goals a game), the No. 1 goalkeeper in junior Danny McCormick (5.34 goals-against average), and the third-leading offense (13.29 goals a game). Virginia has won four straight since losing, 15-13, to No. 1 Syracuse. Cavaliers freshman John Christmas has 12 goals and eight assists for 20 points, tying him with senior Conor Gill (three goals, 17 assists) for the team lead in points.

No. 3 Loyola (6-0) at No. 9 Towson (3-2)

Site: Minnegan Stadium

Time: 1 p.m.

TV/Radio: Ch. 2/WTMD (89.7 FM)

Outlook: This time last year, high-scoring Kyle Campbell and Towson took off with a 19-14 upset of Loyola behind seven Campbell goals. Campbell and the Tigers rolled right into the NCAA tournament and nearly upset eventual national champion Princeton in the semifinals. Now, Towson coach Tony Seaman is hoping for lightning to strike again. Loyola is the only unbeaten Division I team in the Baltimore area.

No. 14 Navy (5-2) at No. 6 Georgetown (5-0)

Site: Harbin Field, Washington

Time: 2 p.m.

Radio: WNAV (1430 AM)

Outlook: Navy could move into second place in the ECAC standings ahead of the Hoyas with a victory today. Georgetown is 2-0 in the ECAC, Navy is 2-1 and UMass 1-0. Navy coach Richie Meade said Georgetown's Steve Dusseau "may be the best Division I player in the country right now." Dusseau is the nation's second-leading scorer with 17 goals, seven assists.

Rutgers (2-6) at UMBC (2-3)

Site: UMBC Stadium

Time: 7 p.m.

Outlook: Two young, low-scoring and ECAC also-rans will play for pride. UMBC regained a little stature last week with a 9-8 victory over Penn State. Junior UMBC goalkeeper Tim Flanagan made 17 saves against the Nittany Lions.- Bill Free
