    The Auburn and Georgia soccer programs have very strong ties to one another as Auburn has 10 players on its roster from Georgia, Auburn Associate Head Coach Amy Berbary was a standout student-athlete for the Bulldogs and Georgia Head Coach Steve Holeman started the Auburn program in 1993.

    "This is a big rivalry game for us and it is exciting for our Georgia girls to go and play in their home state," Auburn Head Coach Karen Hoppa said. "This is always a close and very exciting game."

    Auburn has controlled its series with Arkansas since the 2001 season, going 10-0-1 since that time and has won four of its last five trips to Fayetteville while playing to a draw in the other.

    Auburn's road trip concludes next week when Auburn travels to Vanderbilt (Oct. 19) and Kentucky (Oct.21).
