  Another NCAA lacrosse schedule is released. Notre Dame’s 2013 slate includes games it should win such as Ohio State, Rutgers and Marquette, but it also has few games that will test the Irish. Here’s three games to watch for UND next season.   February 16th vs. Duke-Notre Dame has played Duke to open the season the last three season, and won all three. Each season the Irish have been extremely successful and made solid runs in the NCAA. Before you think UND owns Duke, think again. The Blue Devils have ended it’s season in two of the past three seasons.   March 16th at Denver (…or I mean neutral site at Mile High)-This is a rematch of one of the best games last season. Notre Dame took that one in South Bend 10-9 in 3OT. Needless to say, the Pioneers are going to want revenge.   April 27th vs. Syracuse (In East Rutherford, NJ)-The Big City Classic. The final game of the season. Possibly, the two best teams in the Big East next season. This game could be key in deciding who gets the one-seed in the Big East Tournament.   Overall, Notre Dame’s schedule looks favorable. In a humble, late-October prediction, I say they should finish about 10-3. That should be good enough for a solid seed in the NCAA tournament.
