Aggie Soccer Playing for SEC Regular Season Title TonightSports Thursday, October 31st, 2013
COLLEGE STATION, Texas – The No. 24 Texas A&M Aggies host the LSU Tigers in the regular-season finale at 7 pm on Thursday. The Maroon and White enter Thursday with a chance to win share of their first-ever SEC regular-season title. A win against LSU guarantees a title for the Aggies. A tie or loss would require assistance from outside parties to claim a title. The two teams enter the match headed in opposite directions. A&M has won eight of its last nine matches. LSU, which was in first place in the league ledger just over two weeks ago, has lost its last four matches and has fallen back to sixth place.
If the Aggies win… A win would give the Aggies 27 points in the SEC standings. A&M would claim an outright title if Florida loses or ties at Georgia on Thursday. The Aggies and Gators would share the title if Florida wins and the Gators would claim the No. 1 seed at the SEC Tournament.
If the Aggies tie… A tie would give the Aggies 25 points in the SEC standings. A Florida win over Georgia would give the Gators an outright title. A Florida tie would make A&M and the Gators co-champions and South Carolina could win a share of the title with a win home win against Kentucky on Thursday. A three-way tie with Florida and South Carolina would give A&M the No. 1 seed at the SEC Tournament. The Aggies would have the No. 1 seed in a two-way tie with South Carolina and Florida would have the No. 1 seed if the Aggies and Gators shared the title at 25 points.
If the Aggies lose… A loss would keep A&M at 24 points in the SEC standings. A win or tie by Florida and/or a win by South Carolina in their home match against Kentucky on Thursday would leave the Aggies without a share of the title. If Florida loses and Kentucky defeats South Carolina, the Gators, Wildcats and Aggies would be co-champions with Florida claiming the No. 1 seed, A&M taking the No. 2 seed and the Wildcats seeded at No. 3. If Florida loses and Kentucky and South Carolina play to a draw, the Aggies and Gators would share the title and Florida would claim the No. 1 seed.
