* Buy Tickets Now for Annual Big Man on Campus!

Big Man On Campus will be held Saturday, October 13 in Eykamp 251/252 in Ridgway University Center.
Tickets will be sold at the door for $5 but can also be purchased on campus on October 10, 11, and 12 for $4. This event is hosted by the women of Zeta Tau Alpha in effort to raise money for breast cancer awareness and education. Men from Greek, athletic, and other campus organizations compete in a male pageant competition in front of hundreds of students, families, faculty members, and others from the local community.

The pageant consists of multiple rounds: the first is the opening dance, the second is the runway, the third is the talent competition, and the final round is a response to a serious question about breast cancer. A panel of specially picked judges rates the contestants after each round. The contestant that earns the overall highest ranking will be crowned Big Man On Campus.

This event includes a silent auction, which offers many wonderful prizes. Last year, there was an autographed Colts football as well as tickets to Cardinals vs. Cubs MLB baseball games. There will be excellent items up for grabs this year too!

Last year, we surpassed our goal of $7,000 and now have a goal of $15,000. This year's theme is "construction" since Zeta Tau Alpha is striving to "demolish" Breast Cancer.

Big Man On Campus is a delightful event filled with memorable entertainment, campus-community interconnection, enthusiastic school spirit, and passionate guest speakers, which allows all who attend BMOC to feel a sense of accomplishment."

* Men's Soccer Opens Valley Play at Missouri State

The University of Evansville men’s soccer team will open Missouri Valley Conference play Wednesday night in Springfield, Mo., as the Aces will take on Missouri State at 7 p.m.

The Aces (6-4-0, 0-0-0 MVC) will be the last team in the Valley to play a conference game, as the majority of the league opened its MVC slate this past weekend.  UE will be looking to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Marshall, as Evansville outshot the Thundering Herd, 13-8, but failed to put an attempt past MU keeper Daniel Withrow, who recorded his eighth shutout of the season, establishing a single-season school record for Marshall.

UE has been involved in six shutouts in its last seven games, recording clean sheets against Cincinnati, Oral Roberts and Eastern Illinois, while being shut out by Butler, Kentucky and the aforementioned Thundering Herd.

Freshman forward Faik Hajderovic leads Evansville with 13 points on four goals and five assists, while fellow freshman Mark Anthony Gonzalez, senior Jesse Sharp and sophomore Dylan Terry are all tied for second on the team with six points apiece.  In goal, Eric Teppen has posted a 1.51 goals against average with 42 saves and a pair of shutouts in nearly 893 minutes.

Missouri State (5-3-3, 0-1-0 MVC) lost its conference opener against Bradley Saturday in Springfield, falling 1-0 to the Braves, marking the fourth-straight  game for the Bears that ended in a 1-0 final score.  MSU has lost three of its last four, falling to Dartmouth, Xavier and Bradley with its win coming against Memphis.  As a team, Missouri State is outscoring opponents 11-6, including a 7-1 margin in the first half, and leads the Valley in scoring defense with a 0.51 goals against average.

Cole Alexander leads the Bears with six points on three goals this season, while Jared Gain has tallied five points on a goal and a team-high three assists.  Seven other Bears have recorded at least one point this season and five others have scored a goal.  Goalkeeper Andrew Riggs has played every minute in goal for MSU and leads the league with a 0.51 goals against average, six shutouts and .850 save percentage.  Riggs’ 34 saves are fourth-best in the conference. 

Missouri State leads the all-time series, 13-8-3, and defeated Evansville, 3-0, last season at Arad McCutchan Stadium by scoring all three of its goals in the second half.  The Aces will be looking for their first win over the Bears since 2009, when they prevailed, 2-1, in overtime.
