Coming off of its most complete game of the season, Texas will now face its toughest opponent of the season thus far.
After losing consecutive games to Arkansas and North Carolina State, Texas rebounded last Sunday with a 3-0 win over Toledo. The win brought the Longhorns up to .500 for the season as they ready themselves for the Time Warner Cable Texas Invitational.
Texas opens the invitational with a match against No. 10 Virginia. It will be the first ranked opponent for the Longhorns this season. The Cavaliers lost their first game of the season against a hungry Penn State team but recovered with three straight wins. But the match against Texas will be Virginia’s first on the road.
Texas scored six goals in four games this season but has been shut out in each of its losses. Virginia, meanwhile, has scored multiple goals in all but its first two matches, including a five-goal outburst against Radford.
The match between Texas and Virginia will kick off Friday at 7:30 p.m., following the game between SMU and New Mexico set to start at 5 p.m..
