[su_spacer size=”20″] The Georgia soccer team is set for its final regular season Southeastern conference road trip this weekend, heading to Nashville, Tennessee on Friday at 8 p.m. ET to take on Vanderbilt before rounding out the weekend at Auburn on Sunday at 3 p.m. ET.


Live streams of both games will be available on the SEC Network+ to those with select cable providers.


Last Time Out: The Bulldogs came up just short on Senior Night falling to Alabama in a hard-fought 1-0 loss in double overtime. Both teams’ goalkeepers put on a show, holding their respective opponents scoreless for the first 109 minutes. With 1:27 left in the game, Alabama’s Lacey Clarida stole a ball in the UGA box and snuck home a shot for the game-winner.


Looking at the Commodores: Vanderbilt (7-5-4, 3-2-3) comes into the match riding a two-game wining streak including a victory on the road against No. 8 South Carolina in overtime. The win marked the school’s first win over a ranked opponent in two years.


The Commodores rank near the middle of the pack in the SEC in most statistical categories. The team spreads it out offensively; Vanderbilt has four different athletes who have scored at least two goals this season. The Commodores defend their home turf well, posting a 5-2-2 record in Nashville this season.


Georgia holds an 11-9-1 all-time record against Vanderbilt, including taking last year’s matchup 3-1.


Looking at the Tigers: Auburn (12-3-0, 5-3-0) winds down the year in a tight race for the 2015 SEC regular season crown.  The Tigers are one point off of the lead heading into their final three games.


Auburn is led on offense by Casie Ramsier, who has scored 10 goals on the season.  The 2014 All-SEC performer leads an offense that ranks third in the in conference play in goals scored with 14. The Tigers’ stout defense has conceded only 13 goals on the season. Auburn fell on the road last Friday to No. 21 Ole Miss 2-0. The Tigers are scheduled to face off against Kentucky on Friday before hosting the Bulldogs on Sunday.


Georgia holds a slight advantage in its all-time series record vs. Auburn owning a 9-8-3 record against the Tigers. The two teams tied in their last meeting, 0-0, in 2013.
