Auburn (11-6, 1-4 SEC) enters the weekend coming off a tough 4-3 loss to No. 16 Ole Miss last Sunday in Oxford, Miss. The Tigers claimed the doubles point and nearly capped off a comeback after dropping three singles matches before falling to the Rebels.

Andie Dikosavljevic continues to lead the Tigers in singles action with an 11-4 record in dual matches. The freshman earned her first career win over a nationally-ranked player last Sunday, topping Ole Miss' No. 50 Arianne Hartuno, 7-6 (5), 7-6 (6).
Texas A&M (5-3, 3-1 SEC) held off LSU, 4-3, last weekend on the road in Baton Rouge, La. Rachel Pierson leads the Aggies with a 16-7 overall record in singles. The Aggies have three doubles teams ranked in the latest ITA release, led by No. 29 Ines Deheza and Stefania Hristov.
LSU (11-6, 2-3 SEC) is led by No. 40 Joane Vale Costa, who holds a 21-8 overall record this season and is 7-5 at the No. 1 spot in the lineup. Skyler Kukendall and Abigal Owens are ranked 48th in the nation and are 12-8 overall in doubles.
