    Well, UCD released its schedule- earlier than I thought. Before you make plans to see the Aggies play on 3/9 you should probably check with the school coaches.

    It appears that the website editor goofed and mixed up the 5/9 game at Northridge, adding it a second time on 3/9. That said the timing + placement of the game makes no sense for a couple of reasons.

    1) UCD has not played a Big West team in a non- conference game since 2005, and that was because they were not officially members of any conference at the time. They played Riverside 5 times that year and Pacific 4 times, going 0- 4 against the Tigers and 4- 1 against the Highlanders. In 2006 they started showing up in the Big West standings even though they were ineligible for the playoffs.

    2) The travel involved makes no sense. UCD plays Mt. St. Mary's at home on 3/8, then they're travelling to Northridge on a Monday, then back north to play in Moraga the next day, then back down to Riverside on Friday. Without the St . Mary's game I could see them getting in a game against the Matadors while they're down south before playing Cal Baptist, but they'd be missing an awful lot of class with this arrangement and wasting gas.

    The other possibility is that it's supposed to be a home game and Northridge is in Northern CA playing somebody else on the weekend. Still seems more likely the editor entered the 5/9 game on both days.
