OXFORD, Miss. – The Ole Miss soccer team kicks off a split weekend with a road match at Louisville on Friday afternoon before returning home to host the Ragin’ Cajuns of Louisiana-Lafayette on Sunday at the Ole Miss Soccer Stadium.

Friday afternoon’s match at Louisville will begin at 4:30 p.m. CT and is slated for broadcast online at ESPN3.com. Sunday afternoon’s match against Louisiana-Lafayette is set for a 1 p.m. kick and will be broadcast on the SEC Network Plus.

Admission to all matches at the Ole Miss Soccer Stadium is free to the public.

  • Ole Miss and Louisville will play each other for the first time in the history of the two programs when the Rebels and Cardinals hit the pitch Friday afternoon.
  • The  Rebels enter the contest with an overall record of 1-0-1 after playing Georgia to a draw in the season opener and posting a shutout win over Iowa State to complete the opening weekend of play.
  • Louisville comes into the match with an overall record of 1-1-0 after posting a season-opening win over Wright State on the road by a score of 2-1 and then falling at Illinois by a score of 2-0 last weekend. Isabella Habuda scored both goals for the Cardinals at Wright State off assists from two different players.
  • Senior goalkeeper Kelly McCormick is the reigning SEC Defensive Player of the Week after posting a shutout of Iowa State and notching the game-winning goal on a penalty kick against the Cyclones. She also helped the Rebels to the draw with Georgia to pick up a point in the SEC standings.
