After losing a close game to No. 11 Arkansas, Texas A&M soccer looks ahead to Ole Miss for the Turn it Gold game in support of childhood cancer research on Friday, Sept. 29.

With the Maroon & White’s season record of 5-4-2, they will want to improve their record before the Aggies’ wins and losses equalize. Last season A&M ended its season with a 9-7-5 record.

The 10th annual Turn it Gold match will have Aggie Soccer’s replica gold jerseys for $15 and Turn it Gold scarves for $10. In addition, a supporter that donates $100 or more will get a soccer ball signed by the 2023 team.

In the Aggies’ history with the Rebels, they have won eight times, lost three and tied twice. The most recent game resulted in an away win for the Maroon and White. The Aggies have played the Rebels at least once a year since 2012.

The last time Ole Miss was in Aggieland it defeated A&M 2-0 with both goals by then-senior forward Channing Foster. The most recent win in College Station for the Maroon and White was in 2019 where the home team prevailed 2-1.

At No. 54 in the National Women’s Soccer RPI rankings, the Rebels sit with the same conference record as the No. 93 Aggies with 1-1-1. Both teams’ only SEC wins were 1-0 results in which the one goal was scored on a penalty kick. For A&M, the goal came from graduate forward Sam Smith against Mississippi State while senior forward Kelly Brady scored the penalty kick for Ole Miss against LSU.

In its previous matchup against Arkansas, A&M forwards junior Maile Hayes and senior Jazmine Wilkinson had the most shots with three and four. While in Ole Miss’ prior game, it had two players in junior midfielder Aubrey Mister and freshman forward Gili Johnson each with two shots.

In Aggie fashion, A&M is ranked No. 12 in points per game with 91 points in 11 games averaging 8.27 points per game. Ole Miss was not ranked.

The Aggies’ are set to Turn it Gold in their match against the Rebels which will take place in Ellis Field at 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 29.
