After missing back-to-back games due to COVID-19 protocols, Auburn soccer is finally back in action against Ole Miss on Tuesday.
Auburn opened the season at home on Sept. 18 against Mississippi State and ended in a 1-1 draw in a two-overtime game. Sydney Richards scored the lone Auburn goal while true freshman Maddie Prohaska shined with 8 saves in her first match of her college career.
Prohaska earned SEC Freshman of the Week against Mississippi State, only conceding a penalty kick goal.
Since Auburn had two games postponed, the Ole Miss game will be 25 days after its season opener. In that time frame, Ole Miss was able to play all three of its scheduled games.
Ole Miss comes into the game with a 1-2-0 record after losing to Texas A&M and Mississippi State but beat winless LSU.
Despite only scoring one goal on the entire season, Ole Miss plays a style where they want constant possession and shots on goal. The Tigers will look to exploit the Rebels' offensive pressure with counter-attacks and uneven attacks. Auburn builds from the midfield and will try to continue to find success with its style of play.
The game was originally scheduled for Sunday, October 11th, but was moved to Tuesday, October 13th. Kickoff time is set for 4 p.m. CST and can be streamed on SEC Network+.
