The Indiana University men’s soccer team finished revealing its non-conference schedule for the 2016 season on Monday via Twitter.
The Hoosiers will face a particularly challenging gauntlet to start the season, opening with New Mexico and Cal-Irvine at the Mike Berticelli Memorial Tournament in South Bend on Aug. 26 and 28.
Indiana then opens the home campaign with the IU Classic on Sept. 2 and 4, hosting a pair of Pac-12 foes in California and defending national champion Stanford.
The remainder of the non-conference slate includes home games with IUPUI, Butler and St. Louis, as well as road trips to Notre Dame and Louisville.
In the preseason, IU will host exhibition games against Loyola (Chicago) and Oakland at Armstrong Stadium, as well as take on UCLA in Fort Wayne on Aug. 20.
Michael Lewis is returning to the Big Ten.
According to a report from the Omaha World-Herald, Lewis has taken an assistant’s role under head coach Tim Miles at Nebraska. Lewis spent the past five seasons as an assistant at Butler.
The Jasper native previously served as an assistant at Eastern Illinois, where he was honored in 2010 as one of the top five assistant coaches in the Ohio Valley Conference by FoxSports.com. Lewis also worked in an assistant capacity for one season at Stephen F. Austin and spent two seasons as a graduate assistant under Bob Knight at Texas Tech.
Lewis replaces Phil Beckner, who left Nebraska for Boise State in early April.

Jason Spriggs, Jordan Howard and Nate Sudfeld aren’t the only Hoosiers who have found NFL homes.
Offensive lineman Jake Reed, tight end Michael Cooper and defensive tackle Darius Latham have all reached agreements with organizations after going unselected during Saturday’s final rounds of the NFL Draft.
Cooper, a former walk-on, will join Sudfeld in Washington. Cooper earned All-Big Ten honorable mention honors as a senior after making 17 receptions for 205 yards and two touchdowns. A former Arizona transfer, Cooper appeared in 48 career games and made 14 starts at Indiana.
Latham, a Big Ten honorable mention selection as a junior last season, landed with Oakland. The North Central product decided in late December that he would forego his final year of college eligibility and declare for the draft. He finished his IU career with 81 tackles, 31 solo stops, 7.5 sacks and 18.5 tackles for loss.
Reed, a versatile lineman, reached an agreement with Atlanta, the home of former IU running back Tevin Coleman. The Columbus native appeared in 40 career games between center and guard. He started all 13 games at center during his senior year.

The next step in the draft process for Troy Williams is clear.
Williams has been invited to the NBA Draft Combine next month, his uncle Boo Williams told The Herald-Times on Saturday. The Indiana forward declared for the NBA draft earlier this month.
The combine is an invitation-only event, held May 10-15 in Chicago. Players who have declared for the draft have 10 days from the conclusion of the combine to decide whether they will remain in the field or return to school. Williams has not hired an agent and still holds a year of eligibility should he wish to return to IU.
According to a report from ESPN’s Jeff Goodman on Saturday, former IU point guard Yogi Ferrell is an alternate participant for the combine.

Former Indiana guard Jess Walter is no longer headed to Northern Kentucky following the departure of head coach Dawn Plitzuweit.
The University of South Dakota announced today it had hired Plitzuweit, who was formerly an assistant at Michigan. One of the top reasons Walter chose Northern Kentucky was because Plitzuweit had recruited her out of high school in Midland, Mich.
“I wanted to announced that I am reopening my recruitment once again, due to Coach Dawn accepting a position elsewhere,” Walter posted on Twitter. “Thank you to Coach Dawn and the staff at NKU for the opportunity. I am still very excited about what the future holds, and I know God has a plan for me through this season of change.”
The day after IU was eliminated from the NCAA tournament, Walter announced her intent to transfer. She averaged 2.8 points in 16.4 minutes per game in 2015-16, struggling early in the season after suffering a concussion in practice.
