Soccer Midweek Report: Oct. 22

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Each week during the season, the Midweek Report will serve as a recap of the previous week of action for Arkansas soccer, while previewing the week ahead and keeping up with national rankings and individual accolades.


Arkansas soccer fell to the LSU Tigers 1-0 on Oct. 15 at Razorback Field in a tightly contested match; the loss set the Hogs back to 5-9-1 overall, and 1-6-1 in conference play with three games remaining in the regular season slate. The Razorbacks play two tough road games this week against ranked opponents: No. 23 Texas A&M in College Station, Texas on Friday, and No. 8 Florida in Gainesville, Fla. Sunday afternoon.


With the team sitting in 13th place, Arkansas needs to win their final three games and receive a lot of outside help in order to qualify for the SEC Tournament. The Aggies hold the series advantage against the Hogs 6-4-1, and in their last matchup, A&M edged Arkansas 2-1 at Razorback Field on Oct. 24, 2014. The Gators have never lost to the Razorbacks in 19 matchups; their last contest on Oct. 5, 2014 resulted in Florida extending their win streak against Arkansas with a 3-1 victory.


Both road games will be broadcasted live on SEC Network +. Kickoff against A&M starts Friday at 7 p.m., and the action versus the Gators starts at 5 p.m.
