Ithaca, NY (WBNG Binghamton) At this point the Cornell lacrosse team certainly has to feel comfortable in College Park, MD as the Big Red are back there for the second time in as many weeks. This time their hoping for a little deja vu from last Saturday's game, this time to earn a trip to the Final Four.

Cornell upset sixth seed Maryland on their home turf last weekend and now turn their attentions to try to do the same to third seed Ohio State. However, with a trip to Philadelphia and the Final Four on the line, the Big Red knows it's in for a battle.

"They're going to be a very tough team, they're very hot right now," said senior Rob Pannell. "They won their last two games, the ECAC Tournament and taking it to Towson this past weekend."

"We know we're going to have our hands full. Very explosive team, very skilled, got some great Canadians in the offensive end," said Ben DeLuca, Cornell's head coach. "They face off very well, they control possession, and they have a solid goaltender, so it's a great team."

The Buckeye's and Big Red face off Saturday at 12:30.
