As originally written by Tony Miller:

Season two.

Before the season starts, Ty Keough resigns from his soccer coaching gig at Washington University in St. Louis. "Keough said he had juggled his broadcast schedule in the past when he had 15-18 TV games a year," the St. Louis Post-Dispatch says. "'But this year I could have as many as 40 games,' he said."

There are, as I write this, 34 games in the listing below, plus a handful of USMNT games on which he could have worked. That list is only a little more complete.

Home team listed first.
