Football season is back for the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. On Saturday, Sept. 6th the Pointers will host the Britons of Albion College in the 28th Spud Bowl.
Last season, the UWSP team finished 5-5 with a record of 3-4 in Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference play. The 2013 season was an improvement for the Pointers as they improved their record after going 2-8 in 2012.
This season, the Pointers play Coe College and North Central College in non-conference games with the North Central game as the homecoming game.
Conference play looks to be competitive in the WIAC as UWSP hosts UW Eau Claire, La Crosse, Oshkosh and Stout. The team travels to UW-River Falls, Platteville and Whitewater, the defending Division III National Champions.
Women’s soccer already began their season. UWSP is currently 1-2 after losses to Concordia-Moorhead 1-0 in overtime, 2-0 to the University of St. Thomas, followed by a 4-1 win over St. Olaf College.
The Pointers look to improve from their 2013 record of 4-12-2 and 2-6 in WIAC play. Women’s soccer continues non-conference play with visits to Wartburg College, Luther College and Wheaton College. Conference games begin on Sept. 20th against Whitewater.
