The No. 9 Virginia men’s lacrosse team has a huge opportunity on Saturday afternoon as they travel to South Bend to take on No. 6 Notre Dame at noon. Virginia is 6-2 on the season, but both losses have come handily to ACC foes Syracuse and North Carolina. The ACC is absolutely stacked once again this year — Virginia is last in the ACC and is ranked No. 9 nationally if that gives you any idea — but the Hoos have four more chances in conference play to pick up some wins.
The last time these two teams met, Virginia took down the Irish 10-4 to win the 2019 ACC tournament title.
