Searching for its first-ever win in College Station and series sweep versus the Aggies, the Kansas volleyball team (15-11, 6-9 Big 12) heads to Texas A&M (12-12, 6-8 Big 12) on Wednesday, Nov. 10. The match from Reed Arena is slated for 6:30 p.m.

A win over the Aggies would give KU its first-ever win in College Station, first series sweep versus TAMU and move the Jayhawks up in the Big 12 standings at least one spot. Senior Karina Garlington continues to pace the KU offense as she is sixth in the conference averaging 3.54 kills per set. She is also averaging a team-best .423 attack percentage over the last three contests.

Defensively, freshman libero Brianne Riley, who returned to the starting lineup on Oct. 27, is 10th in the conference with 3.71 digs per set and has led the team in digs in three of the last four outings. Riley and the rest of the KU back court will be tested as the Aggies lead the Big 12 with 1.40 aces per set.

KU defeated Texas A&M 3-2 earlier this season in Lawrence to stop a seven-match losing streak against the Aggies but the Jayhawks still trail the all-time series 25-5, including 15-0 in College Station.
