Keep Your Eyes on This

Division I: After losing six players to Major League Soccer, No. 3 North Carolina looks to upset top-ranked Louisville who beat then-No. 6 UCLA in its season opener last weekend.

Division II: Defending national champions and No. 1 Northern Kentucky look to get off to a hot start behind sophomore forward Michael Holder, who scored 15 goals last season including the winner for the title.

Division III: No. 1 Messiah opens its quest for a fourth-consecutive national title with three games this week including its opener against No. 5 Ohio Wesleyan. The Falcons return seven starters but are looking to replace last year's offensive stars Geoff Pezon and Nick Thompson.
