The LSU volleyball team returns to action Sunday at Arkansas.
Action begins at 1:30 p.m. on SEC Network+.
After playing the past two matches at home, Sunday will be the first of two big tests on the road, as the Tigers will face Texas A&M, ranked 23rd by the AVCA and 18th in the RPI, on Thursday on the SEC Network.
LSU (13-7, 8-3 Southeastern Conference) enters Sunday’s contest on a season-long eight-match winning streak to tie one of the longest conference winning streaks since 2009 while becoming the fifth team in program history to win eight or more league matches in a row.
After racing out to a 5-1 start in league play, Arkansas (11-12, 5-5) has dropped its past four, including a three-set sweep at Missouri on Friday.
LSU will be looking to earn its first win in Barnhill Arena since 2010.
