The Mississippi State Bulldogs didn't take it easy on themselves in finding an opponent to open the 2013 soccer season.
Even though its an exhibition game, MSU coach Aaron Gordon went out to find the best competition possible.
He believes South Florida out of the Big East Conference fits that idea. The Bulldogs challenge the Bulls tonight at home.
"For the exhibition game, I wanted to play as tough a game possible because I knew I was going to have a lot of freshmen and we needed to have an idea of where we stood in preseason before we go into regular season game," Gordon said. "The Big East is one of the best conferences, (and one of the) top four or five in the country. Notre Dame is the national champion and have come out of that conference, so they have to meet those expectations every year."
