Rutgers Men’s Soccer 2023 Schedule Released
The defending Big Ten Champions know whom they will play and when after the 2023 Men’s Soccer schedule was completed and released on Friday.
The 15-game schedule will feature eight home games at Yurcak Field, which became quite a home-field advantage for the Scarlet Knights last season.
The regular season kicks off in earnest on August 24 with Rutgers on the road against the Delaware Blue Hens.
Four days later, Rutgers will host St. John’s at 7:30 p.m. from Yurcak Field on August 28.
The Scarlet Knights will face Jersey rivals Princeton on September 1 at Roberts Stadium down in Princeton. Rutgers then heads back to Piscataway to face St. Peter’s on September 4 at 7 p.m.
FUTURE BIG TEN RIVAL?
While we know UCLA and USC are making the switch from the PAC-12 to the Big Ten in 2024, there is no word if the soccer programs will follow. Regardless, Rutgers will face the Bruins of UCLA out in California on September 9.
