Texas A&M soccer returns to action on Thursday at 6PM when they face Arkansas in Fayetteville. The Aggies are looking to stop the season free fall and buck several negative trends.

The Aggies are looking stay above .500 on the season, notch their first SEC win of the season (the Ags are currently 0-3 in conference play), and end the 4 game losing streak they have to Arkansas.

That's a lot on the line against a team that comes in ranked #12 and is looking for their 4th consecutive SEC title. Arkansas advanced to the Elite Eight last year before being eliminated on PKs. Arkansas is 7-2-1 this season with a 2-1 mark in conference play. Both losses have been surprising. A 0-1 loss at Saint Louis started the regular season and an 0-2 loss at Mississippi State started the conference season. In their other two conference games, Arkansas dispatched Auburn 1-0 and #8 South Carolina 1-0.

On the season, Arkansas has outscored opponents 22-8 and outshot them 162-100. The Razorbacks are placing just over 50% of their shots on frame. The goals have come from all around as 6 Arkansas players have multiple goals this year. All-American senior forward, Anna Podojil is tied for the team high in goals with 4, along with 4 assists.

Anna Podojil is probably the best and most impactful player in Arkansas soccer history, giving the school their first All-American and MAC Hermann semi-finalist. Arkansas' only three SEC season titles have come in her Freshman, Sophomore, and Junior years. Well, she's a senior now.

You can tune into the match live on ESPNU or stream the audio at 12thman.com or via the 12th Man Mobil app.

Chris Henderson of All White Kit tweeted out his preview:

"Desperation is not a great place to be facing an Arkansas side looking to stick in the SEC title race. The Hogs have done it with defense the last week, with a pair of 1-0 wins."

The game was originally scheduled for the SEC Network but is now on ESPNU.

Hopefully we see a formation change tonight. A&M needs to play a 4 backline if they are going to give themselves a chance to win. This is gonna be a very direct game from Arkansas with lots of balls going into the box.

Thank you, CDub.

Podojil has been amazing for Arkansas. Some players just know how to score goals and how to lift their teams when needed. She's got all that and more.

I sure hope the Ags don't go in thinking they're "better than" Arkansas. This A&M team needs to be preparing and fighting like it's a massive underdog in every game it plays.

Glad I left the channel on ESPU for College Football Live > The Pulse > Aggie Soccer or I would have missed the first hour. Yes, NOW I know I should be reading CDub's threads in the morning.

Interesting that Arkansas switched to a 3 backline after 10 minutes into the game.

Lulled me into a false sense of offense.

We usually give up goals in the final minutes of regulation, not the final minutes of the half.

Was anyone guarding their best player, Podojil?

How many times this year has this Aggie team been punished for letting a ball bound around in the box, without attacking and clearing it?

That's a rhetorical question.

This team just doesn't seem to have any forwards who can create dangerous chances against good defenses. Until that gets turned around, it's gonna be a struggle.

Wasn't our defense supposed to be "amazing" this year? What in the hell has happened to this program?

This team will click! Getting 2021-2022 mens basketball vibes from this team. 10 straight losses, but sparked an unbelievable run afterwards. They just need their confidence back. You also hate to see all of the injury's. Hoping she's alright.

We are terrible at passing. Wrong weight, wrong direction, or passing to a marked player.

I am drinking some wine actually, but I just have faith. Get passed the frustration, mental hurdle, and break the score streak and I think some Aggie magic will happen. I've seen it in every Aggie sport. Just hasn't happened for women's soccer yet. Our girls are tough, they just need the grit magic that the baseball team had last year.

Note I'm also very new to Aggie soccer. First time watching this year consistently. I am aware losing in soccer historically isn't our thing.

Arkansas scored a similar way last year by keeping the ball in the air where we couldn't get it.

We can't string two passes together. Brutal, brutal showing for the Aggies.
