AUBURN – No. 13 Auburn gymnastics travels to Fayetteville, Ark. on Friday night to meet No. 2 Arkansas at the Barnhill Arena. The meet is scheduled for 7 p.m. CT.
Auburn is looking to build off a pair of solid meets at home, including a season-high score of 196.250 in a narrow loss a week ago to Alabama. Last Friday night marked the first time Auburn scored 196.000 or higher since February 2010.
Despite falling in the matchup with the Crimson Tide, Auburn moved up three spots in the rankings. The Tigers moved up to 13th, their highest ranking since sitting at 11th in January 2010.
This week’s meet with the Razorbacks marks the third-straight meet against a team ranked in the top six (No. 6 Georgia and No. 6 Alabama). Arkansas holds the all-time advantage in the series, 10-7. Last season, Arkansas was victorious in Auburn, 195.325-195.150. The Tigers last defeated Arkansas head-to-head in 2009.
