EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -

The University of Evansville men's soccer team travels north to battle an in-state rival with a matchup with Butler on Tuesday night at 6 p.m. (CST) in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The Purple Aces are 4-1 on the season and are coming off their first loss of the season, a 1-0 loss on the road at Grand Canyon last Thursday.

UE opened the season with four-straight victories, its best start since opening 5-0 in 2008. The Aces will look to return to their winning ways with a road matchup with the Butler Bulldogs.

Entering the weekend, the Bulldogs hold a 3-2 record and are coming off a 3-2 loss to Western Michigan on Friday. Much like the Aces, Butler was ranked (18th) in last week's TopDrawerSoccer.com Top 25 poll before falling out of the poll this week. The meeting is the 18th in series history between Evansville and Butler with the Aces holding a 14-13 advantage in the series.
