Men's soccer -- Saturday vs. Princeton, 7 p.m.
Not sure how much more motivation FIU needs for this Saturday's shot at perennial B1G bottom Indiana beyond a shot at 2-0...but this. Yeah.
Summary: IU paid to dump South Florida and add FIU so the Hoosiers could have an easier non-conference schedule. Clearly, Indiana athletic department and football program saw FIU as college-affiliated football version of a paid sub, a consonant better than the Hoosiers' season-opening FCS foe Southern Illinois.
Former FIU defensive tackles Greg Hickman and Isame Faciane, now an offensive guard, were among Minnesota's final cuts Saturday. Faciane got signed to the Vikings practice squad for the second consecutive season.
