August

The eighth-ranked Florida soccer team will play two Top 20 opponents in the First Tennessee Lady Vol Classic in Knoxville this weekend.

The Gators (2-0) will play No. 18 Texas A&M (1-1), in the opening match today at 5:30 p.m. UF faces No. 15 UCLA (1-0) Sunday at 1:30 p.m.

This is the second consecutive season Florida has traveled to play two ranked teams for a regular-season tournament. In 2010, UF met then No. 17 Duke (1-1 2OT) and No. 1 North Carolina (2-0 loss) in the Duke Nike Classic in Durham, N.C.

The Gators opened the 2011 season with a pair of 2-0 road wins against in-state rivals Miami and FIU.
