The Shotgun/Throwdown: Top 25 matchup tonight for the West Virginia women’s soccer team

Good morning! This is the Shotgun Throwdown, your daily West Virginia sports roundup.

Welcome, By-Godders, to The Shotgun/Throwdown, WVU’s best place for sports links, information, sophomoric humor, and daily distractions.

The #21 West Virginia women’s soccer team will be facing a fellow ranked team tonight. #11 Auburn will host the Mountaineers in a huge nonconference match. WVU is coming off of a 3-0 win over Saint Francis, but the Tigers are a much tougher, and undefeated, opponent. The Mountaineers will need to be creative offensively if they want to win this game, because Auburn has only allowed one goal in its first four games. The match will be shown on SEC Network+.


Surprises and wrinkles likely in play, but slowing Pitt’s ground game crucial for Mountaineers
