The Auburn Tigers (7-2) and ranked No. 12 in the country welcome the Texas A&M Aggies (5-4-1) to town on Sunday afternoon, where Auburn looks to rebound from a stunning loss on the road at Tennessee on Thursday night.
Auburn comes into this game after losing to Tennessee on Thursday night, when it led the contest 1-0 with less than five minutes left. Tennessee scored a late goal in the second half to send it to overtime, where the Volunteers put the game away in double overtime with a goal from Brooke Wilson to give them the 2-1 win. This was the first loss in SEC play for the Tigers.
Texas A&M is coming off a tough overtime loss themselves, losing to No. 11 Arkansas on Thursday night 1-0 at home. The Aggies were outshot in that game 22-9, and didn’t record a single shot in the overtime period.
Anna Haddock leads the way for Auburn this season with seven goals and three assists so far on the year, seven goals being the most on the team. Olivia Candelino leads the team with four assists, who assisted on Auburn’s lone goal in Thursday night's loss at Tennessee, scored by Marissa Arias.
The Aggies are led by leading goal scorer Maile Hayes, with five goals on the season. Mia Pante leads the team in assists with six.
This will be the third game in a row against a ranked opponent for Texas A&M, previously playing No. 9 Pepperdine and No. 11 Arkansas. Auburn will be the sixth ranked team the Aggies have played this season.
Auburn will look to take advantage of this one game at home before heading back out on the road to play two straight games away from The Plains.
The Tigers and Aggies will kickoff from the Auburn Soccer Complex on Sunday, Sept. 26, at 2:00 p.m. CST. You can listen to the game live here on WEGL 91.1 FM in conjunction with the Auburn Sports Network.
