BATON ROUGE, La. - The LSU Lady Tigers (7-5; 0-2 SEC) will set off to face the No. 14 Auburn University Tigers (12-1; 2-0 SEC) at the Yarbrough Tennis Center Friday at 3 p.m. CT.

"I am a fan of road trips," head coach Julia S. Sell said. "While they can be exhausting, they also allow your team to bond and get closer.  Auburn is ranked No. 14, so we are looking forward to having another opportunity against a top team.  We have been getting better with every match, and I'm looking for the team to continue that improvement."

LSU wrapped up its first weekend of conference play in a close match against No. 53 Kentucky Sunday. After notching the doubles point in the day's first two matches, Ariel Morton and Ella Taylor followed with two LSU victories in singles.

The match-deciding set came down to Caroline Hudson on court five. The freshman notched her first set 6-1, and she came within one game of tallying a win for the Lady Tigers when the set was handed over to the Wildcats. Following Hudson's third set loss, Kentucky marked a 4-3 win.

LSU holds a 26-10 advantage over the Auburn Tigers, last tallying a 4-3 victory in 2012.
