The Grambling State University women’s soccer team is set to travel to Fayetteville, Ark. to take on two-seed Arkansas in the opening round of the 2023 NCAA Division I Women’s Soccer Tournament on Friday at 6:30 p.m. CST.

This will be GSU’s second trip to the NCAA postseason since winning the Southwestern Athletic Conference (SWAC) Tournament in 2006. The Tigers earned their way into the tourney with a 2-1 win over Jackson State in the SWAC Title game.

Grambling State (15-4-4) will face off against Arkansas (14-4-2) for the first since 2004, a match that the Razorbacks won 4-0.

Arkansas enters the tournament after having lost to Georgia in the SEC Championship game 1-0 on Sunday.

The winner of Friday’s match will play the winner of Pittsburgh and Ohio State in the second round.
