With Texas A&M soccer’s 28th NCAA Tournament appearance in 29 years coming up on Friday, Nov. 10 at 7 p.m., the Aggies will look to the Colorado Buffaloes to come to Ellis Field.

As decided a few minutes into Monday’s NCAA Selection Show, No. 49 A&M and No. 55 Colorado in the NCAA Women’s Soccer RPI will face off at Ellis Field.

The Aggies’ new offensive talents this season in graduate Sammy Smith, senior Jazmine Wilkinson and freshman Taylor Jernigan have combined for 17 goals this season, while the Buffaloes’ senior forward Shyra James has 15 goals by herself this season.

In Colorado’s history with A&M, the Maroon and White have won 17 of the games, tied two and lost two. The last meeting between the two sides was in November of 2010 when the Aggies defeated the Buffaloes on penalty kicks of the Big 12 Tournament.

The Fightin’ Farmers have fouled 166 times and were awarded nine yellow cards this season, while their opponents have been given 214 fouls and were booked with 20 yellow cards.

Coming off a close SEC Tournament semifinal loss in double overtime to Georgia, A&M will hope to continue through the tournament’s bracket into the second round with a potential rematch against Florida State.

The Seminoles are playing Morehead State Eagles on Friday, Nov. 10 at 4 p.m. in Tallahassee, Florida. Previously in the season, A&M fell 2-1 to NCAA Tournament No. 1 seed Florida State at Ellis Field. The Seminoles were 16-0-1 with their one draw being to North Carolina.

The match is free for those with a student ID, as well as parking with a valid A&M pass.
