Marquette men's soccer finished last season with a Big East Blue Division title, but without an appearance in the NCAA tournament. With today's announcement of the 2012 schedule from the athletic department, the route to take a step forward is now laid out.

Marquette will start their season off with three exhibition matches before starting the regular season against Milwaukee on August 24th as the first half of a co-ed doubleheader with the Panthers. The non-conference portion of the schedule features both Big Ten schools from the state of Michigan and the defending Summit League champions. The Big East schedule features an interesting twist to end the season. Marquette and Notre Dame will play twice in four days, once in South Bend and once in Milwaukee. The home-and-home series is the scheduling solution to the departure of West Virginia from the conference. Overall, there are six teams who appeared in the 2011 NCAA tournament on the Golden Eagles' schedule this year.
