We here at Streaking the Lawn don’t usually offer up a whole post on how to consume all the Virginia sports that are upcoming, but there aren’t usually this many teams in action. There are ACC matches, non-conference battles, and NCAA tournament bouts. Two teams are competing to potentially raise an NCAA trophy this weekend as the Men’s Cross Country team is racing in the NCAA Championships on Saturday and the Field Hockey team is in the Final Four. Wrestling, Squash, and Swim and Dive are all competing this weekend, but with no streaming available.

To help you keep it all straight, here’s everything Virginia you can watch this weekend:

Friday, November 22

3:45pm - Field Hockey vs. Princeton (NCAA Semifinals)
Live Video (NCAA)

The No. 4 Virginia Cavaliers will face a stiff test in the NCAA Semifinals as the Hoos face No. 9 Princeton. The Tigers have been responsible for knocking Virginia out of the NCAA tournament the last three seasons, so the stage is set for the Hoos to defeat some demons. Princeton is nationally ranked No. 9, but are unseeded in the tournament. The Cavaliers have never made the National Championship game and would face the winner of North Carolina and Boston College.

6:30pm - Volleyball vs. Boston College

Virginia is looking for their fourth ACC win of the season as they host the Eagles Friday night. It’s the last home game for the Hoos this season, meaning the four fourth years will be honored for Senior Night. Boston College is 19-9 (10-5 ACC) on the season.

7:00pm - Women’s Soccer vs. Washington State (NCAA tournament second round)

Coming off of their first round 3-0 win over Radford, the Cavaliers welcome the Washington State Cougars to Klöckner Field Friday night for a second round matchup. WSU is 13-6-1 on the season and finished sixth in the Pac-12. The two teams have met twice before, with both matchups coming in 2011 season. If Virginia wins, they’ll face the winner of West Virginia and Central Connecticut State on Sunday.

Saturday, November 23

12pm - Men’s Basketball vs. UMass (Air Force Reserve Tip-Off Tournament)
Live Video (ESPN News)

Some Virginia fans will have a choice to make as the No. 7 Virginia Basketball team tips off 30 minutes before the football team kicks-off against Liberty. The Hoos are facing the 5-0 Minutemen (No. 178 KenPom) at the Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, CT. The Cavaliers are looking for their seventh straight November tournament victory after winning the Emerald Coast Classic, Charleston Classic, Barclays Center Classic, Corpus Christi Challenge, NIT Season Tip-Off, and Battle 4 Atlantis.

12:00pm - Football vs. Liberty

Virginia has an opportunity to pick up win No. 8 on the season as the Hoos welcome the Liberty Flames to Charlottesville. The Cavaliers are coming off a bye week and have a chance to get more in-game experience for the younger players stepping up in the secondary.

Sunday, November 24

1pm - Men’s Soccer vs. Campbell (NCAA Tournament Second Round)
Live Video (ACCNX)

The 2019 ACC Champs take to the field to face Campbell after the Camels knocked off James Madison on Thursday. Virginia gets Joe Bell — ACC Midfielder of the Year — back from his short stint with the New Zealand National Team, and the No. 1 Cavalier defense will attempt to get their 14th shutout of the season. Campbell is 17-2-2 on the season and won the Big South tournament before knocking out the Dukes.

2pm - Women’s Basketball vs. Old Dominion
Live Video (ACCNX)

Virginia Women’s Basketball returns home to host the Monarchs after back-to-back games against ranked competition in Kentucky and UConn. ODU is 3-0 to start the season, including a win over Auburn. The Cavaliers are 2-3 after a challenging open slate.

1pm or 3:30pm - Men’s Basketball vs. St. John’s/ASU (Air Force Reserve Tip-Off Tournament)

Virginia will play either St. John’s (No. 86 KenPom) or Arizona State (No. 80) at either 1pm or 3:30pm depending on the outcome of the preceding games. Regardless, Virginia will get to play at top 90 KenPom team from a “Power 6” conference.
