We have lift off! The 2022 College Soccer Season is underway and Minnesotan players will not be left out. One week in and we are not short on stories as Freshmen score goals, the Drake Bulldogs rely on their MN Trio, and we've got updates on women making impacts coast to coast. Disney doesn't need this from us, but allow me to make an unpaid commercial pitch for ESPN+. There is a noticeable jump in Women's College soccer on the platform, with the Gophers opening their year with two ESPN+ streams from Texas. ESPN+ has a lot of men's professional soccer and other sports that make it worth while, but this year the benefit to fans of the women's game can really see value. Put simply, there will be players from our list below on ESPN+ every week, so keep your eyes out! Thanks to the conferences like the Summit League who offer free, highly professional streams as well!
The synergy of me bartending at our local soccer bar, The Blackhart, means more women's soccer to watch! Keep an eye on our social media to see when we will get college games on the screen there. Gopher games are particularly restricted with BTN+, but we've got the subscription!
