As the LSU soccer team turns down the homestretch of the regular season, the Tigers head to James G. Pressley Stadium in Gainesville, Fla., on Sunday to battle Southeastern Conference-leading and 11th-ranked Florida.

The game will be televised on ESPNU beginning at 1 p.m.

The Tigers (11-6-1, 6-3 SEC) trail the Gators (14-4, 7-2) by three points on the SEC table as they start in sole possession of fourth place with 18 points in conference play. Despite sitting at fourth place in the overall SEC standings, LSU owns a two-point lead over Auburn for first place in the SEC West.

Florida, the five-time defending SEC champion, is tied with South Carolina for first place on the league table after securing 21 points from its nine SEC matches this season. The Gators are coming off of a 2-1 overtime win at Arkansas on Thursday night to keep pace at the top of the conference standings.

The Tigers are looking to rebound from a 4-1 defeat to South Carolina in their home finale Thursday while seeing their nine-game home unbeaten streak snapped.

LSU has dropped each of its last five matches against Florida dating to the 2007 season.
