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.
WHAT’S AT STAKE?
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.
