Long live Caniglia Field. The old ball yard looks spectacular. Different, yes. There are soccer lines down there. Goals in each end zone. Empty space, where the visiting bleachers used to stand.
Another weekend, another test for the UNO men’s soccer team. The Mavericks will begin their season by hosting Santa Clara at 7:30 p.m. Friday and No. 20 Stanford at 7 p.m. Sunday at Caniglia Field.
UNO will host the Omaha Classic this weekend at the Sapp Fieldhouse. A Drake-UMKC match will open the tournament at 3 p.m. The Mavericks play Central Michigan at 6.
