The Bryan College Men's Soccer Program releases the schedule for the 2011 season. The Lions are coming off of the best season in the program's history as they made it to the NAIA National Championship Final Site and finished the season ranked #9 in the nation. With the success comes an even harder schedule for the upcoming season. However, Coach Zensen believes that with those he has returning along with the recruits that came in last January and are coming in this August the team should be even better this season.

The Lions will prepare for the regular season as they host Southern Polytechnic State University in a preseason scrimmage. The Hornets have also been to the National Tournament the past two seasons.

Bryan will kick off their season on the 27th of August at University of the Cumberlands. The following Saturday they will host their first home match against Trevecca Nazarene University.

On September 7, the Lions will go on the road to take on NCAA Division II Carson-Newman College.

The next week, Bryan will host the Lee University Flames for the first time in years.

The Lions will then begin their conference games with the first two on the road. They will be at Montreat College on the 17th of September and at Tennessee Wesleyan College on the 21st.

Perennial powerhouse Lindsey Wilson will travel to Dayton on the 24th of September to compete against Bryan on their home field. The Blue Raiders have won eight national championships with the most recent one being in 2009.

For Homecoming, the Lions will host Point University on October 8.

Berry College and Maryville College have both returned to the scheduled for this upcoming season. Both of them are NCAA Division III schools. Bryan will travel to Berry on the 22nd of September and then will host Maryville on the 25th.

The AAC Tournament Quarterfinals will be held on the 5th of November with the top four seeds hosting the lower four seeds. The Final Four will be hosted by the highest seed remaining with Semifinals played on the 11th and Finals on the 12th.

The NAIA National Championship Opening Round, which is held at host sites, will be played on November 19. The final sixteen teams will then travel to Orange Beach, Al., again to compete in the NAIA National Tournament from November 28 to December 3.
