Auburn, Ala. - The No. 40 women's tennis team (11-3, 3-1 SEC) looks to extend their two-match win-streak when they host No. 22 Texas Christian University (7-3), Tuesday at 2 p.m., in the Yarbrough Tennis Center.

The Tigers meet with the Horned Frogs for the second time in the two programs' history. TCU has the edge on Auburn, winning the first contest. The Frogs meet with the Tigers on a two-match win-streak. TCU claimed victories on the road at Wake Forest and VCU.
