College Matchday: No.21 Notre Dame at No.5 South Florida

WHEN: Sunday, 1 p.m., USF Soccer Stadium

NEED TO KNOW: South Florida will get its toughest test of the season so far as it entertains Big East rival and No.21 Notre Dame.

The Irish will be without a pair of key players, with defender Aaron Maund and midfielder Dillon Powers absent due to international duty. Both are with the U.S. under-20 side that will begin competition in the FIFA Under-20 World Cup next Saturday in Egypt.

Bernardo Anor, who scored his second goal of the season in his first start of the season, appears to be back to full match-fitness 12 months after suffering a torn ACL. The Bulls hold a 3-1-0 record in the series, defeating the Irish 2-1 in the Big East tournament semifinals last season on their way to the Big East title.
