Missouri women's soccer team to face Baylor, San Diego in Texas A&M Tournament

Wednesday, September 4, 2013 | 8:38 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — The Missouri women's soccer team travels to College Station, Texas, this weekend, where the Tigers are scheduled to face Baylor and San Diego in the Texas A&M Tournament.

Missouri is scheduled to play Baylor at 4 p.m. Friday before facing San Diego at 11 a.m. Sunday.

Live audio and video of some tournament games will be available through AggieAthletics.com.

Baylor is 4-0 and currently ranked No. 7 in the country, according to the Bennett Rank poll. Missouri is ranked No. 15.

"Whatever number it is, it doesn't matter," Missouri associate head coach Brian Dooley said. "You treat every team with the same respect and go after them with the same enthusiasm."

Missouri is 11-7-1 all-time against the Bears, with the teams last facing off in the first round of the 2011 Big 12 Conference tournament. The game ended in a 2-2 tie before the Tigers won 4-3 in penalty kicks.

Senior forward Alyssa Diggs hopes the team's experience against Baylor is beneficial.

"We've played Baylor in the past," Diggs said. "We know that they're going to be physical."

San Diego is "a bit more difficult style-wise than Baylor," Dooley said.

"You have to match them physically, but they also have a very strong, attacking possession mentality," he said.

Missouri is 0-2 all-time against the Toreros, but the Tigers are confident about their chances this weekend.
