BALTIMORE – Loyola University Maryland’s men’s lacrosse game against Air Force will be part of the Whitman’s® Sampler® Mile High Classic, an Inside Lacrosse event, on Saturday, March 16, 2013.

The game will be played at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver, home of the National Football League’s Denver Broncos. Loyola’s game is part of a doubleheader that will include a second game between Notre Dame and Denver.

Loyola and Air Force were slated to play their ECAC Lacrosse League game on the Falcons’ home field in Colorado Springs, but the game was moved to Denver to be a part of the event. Faceoff is slated for 4 p.m. (Mountain) with the Notre Dame-Denver game following.

This is the second Inside Lacrosse event the Greyhounds have been part of. Loyola played Notre Dame in the 2010 Konica Minolta Face-Off Classic at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.

The Loyola-Air Force game is slated to appear on one of the ESPN family of networks with complete details forthcoming.
