BATON ROUGE -- The 26th-ranked LSU men's tennis team (11-6, SEC 2-3) returns home Sunday to play host to their biggest SEC opponent of the season, the No. 4 Georgia Bulldogs.
 
LSU looks to rebound off a tough 4-3 loss earlier this week against No. 24 Tennessee.
 
"Georgia has always been a powerhouse team," head coach Jeff Brown said. "They have had another good year thus far. We expect it to be a high level match and an exciting match for everyone to come out and see."
 
The Tigers are led by No. 71 Olivier Borsos and No. 85 Neal Skupski.  In doubles, the team of Borsos and Chris Simpson have a No. 51 ranking and are 8-8 on the season.
 
Georgia's last win came over No. 32 Arkansas. The Bulldogs shut out the Razorbacks 7-0. Georgia currently houses five ranked players in singles, Wil Spencer (No. 8), Sadio Doumbia (No. 20), Ignacio Taboada (No. 29), Ku Singh (No. 50) and Hernus Pieters (No. 70). In doubles, the pairings of Spencer and Garrett Brasseaux, Doumbia and Taboada, Pieters and Taboada and Pasha and Doumbia all appear in the rankings.
 
Georgia owns a 43-14 all-time record against the Tigers. Last season, LSU met Georgia two times, dropping both matches, 7-0 in Athens, and 4-1 in the SEC Tournament.
 
The match is set to begin at 1 p.m. CT at the W. T. Dub Robinson Stadium with free crawfish to be served at 12 p.m.
 
Free pizza will also be available. Admission is free.
