Don't look now folks, but the OSU lacrosse team is now 8-0 and ranked #17 in the nation. After playing a mediocre schedule to start the season they just went on the road to beat #11 Towson 6-3.

Every opponent remaining except for Michigan will be ranked so there definitely will be plenty of opportunities for OSU to strengthen their resume to make the NCAA Lacrosse Tournament. The B1G is the best lacrosse conference in the nation this year. OSU will need to finish in the top 4 to make the B1G tournament, which OSU is hosting this May. In the past, a 2-3 league record has been enough to make the B1G tournament with the help of some tiebreakers. OSU needs to win at home, beat TTUN (always) and steal a game on the road and they should be in good standing come B1G tourney time.
Should be a fun second half of the season with a lot of good games and the majority of the games on TV.
