Tigers travel to Texas A&M for Sunday match on SEC Network
AUBURN, Ala. (auburntigers.com) – The 11th-ranked Auburn soccer team is set to wrap-up its regular season road schedule when it makes the trek to Texas A&M. Kickoff is set for 5 p.m. on Sunday and will be televised on the SEC Network.
The Tigers (12-4-0, 8-1-0 SEC) are currently riding a program-best seven-game winning streak, with all seven results coming in conference play. During the streak, Auburn has outscored opponents 18-6, including 12-3 in the second half, and have totaled three shutouts.
More recently, Auburn took a 2-1 decision at LSU on Thursday night. Casie Ramsier netted both goals, including one with just over 50 seconds remaining in the match to secure the three points and keep the win streak alive.
Bri Folds and Kristen Dodson each tallied an assist in the 90-minute contest.
The Tigers are one of only four teams in the country to win all of their road matches this season. Auburn currently stands at 6-0-0 away from home and is joined by Bucknell, UCLA and 2016 foe South Alabama as the only teams with winning results in every road match.
Following the conclusion of its tilt on Sunday, Auburn will put a bow on the regular season when it hosts Tennessee for Senior Night on Thursday, Oct. 27. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. with a special presentation honoring the six Tiger seniors.
An Auburn Win Would…
A win by Auburn would give the Tigers their first win ever in College Station, Texas and their second-straight victory against the Aggies. Auburn would also keep pace with current SEC leader South Carolina in the race for the regular season crown.
