UAB is 2-1 on the season but hasn't played a dual match since defeating Florida Gulf Coast, 5-2, at Tallahassee, Fla. on Jan. 20. The Blazers opened the season Jan. 19 with a 4-2 win over Florida A&M before falling to No. 32 Florida State, 7-0, later in the day.

The Razorbacks also have registered 7-0 wins over Nebraska-Omaha and South Dakota State.

UAB will be back home on Saturday when the Blazers play host to No. 21-ranked Auburn. The match with the Tigers is slated for a 1:00 p.m. CT start at George Ward Park.
