Ivy League football is still a few weeks away, but we have plenty of action this weekend here at Harvard.
At 2pm in the first athletic event of the year, the Harvard Crimson women's soccer team take on San Diego State. The men's soccer team follows that up at 4pm with a game against Stony Brook. Both games will be at Ohiri Field. The women's soccer team then travels to UCONN to face the Huskies on Saturday.
Friday also sees the start of the Harvard Invitational, as the women's volleyball team takes on Colgate at 7pm. Harvard faces Stony Brook and Toledo in the tournament on Saturday at 1pm and 7pm respectively. All the games are at the Malkin Athletic Center, with the tourny beginning at 4pm with the Toledo/Stony Brook match.
