STARKVILLE, Miss. – Two of the SEC’s leading scorers meet Friday night as the Mississippi State soccer team caps a busy Homecoming Eve by hosting No. 12 Florida in a 7 p.m. first kick at the MSU Soccer Field.

Admission to the 7 p.m. contest, which is Greek Life Night and Junior Bulldog Club Night, is free, and the first 200 fans in attendance will receive a free Adidas Bulldog Soccer T-shirt. Fans can also win other prizes during the match and through the Bulldogs’ Facebook page (Facebook.com/HailStateSOC).

The Greek group with the largest attendance will win a Hail State cooler.

Fans unable to attend can watch a free live video stream of the match at www.hailstate.com/hstvlive.

Mississippi State senior Elisabeth Sullivan and Florida freshman Savannah Jordan have been two of the most potent attackers in the league and nation this season, tying for second in the SEC and eighth nationally with 12 goals each.

For Sullivan, that tally is tied with her 2012 total for the second-most in school history, three back of the single-season school record.

The Memphis native will be aiming to help her team rebound from Sunday’s 1-0 setback at Arkansas and continue a recent string of success for the Bulldogs (3-9, 0-5 SEC) against the Gators at the MSU Soccer Field.

In 2011, Sullivan scored 37 seconds in and the MSU defense made it stand against an 11th-ranked Gators squad to claim a 1-0 victory.

Two years earlier, Kat Walsh scored and UF converted a late penalty kick as the teams played to a 1-1 tie.

Jordan, who attended Morganne Grimes’ high school in Fayetteville, Ga., and played club soccer with Bulldog freshman Kayla Puzas, has guided Florida to a 9-3-1 record, 3-2-0 SEC mark.

The Gators knocked off Auburn 3-0 Sunday after suffering back-to-back defeats to Missouri and South Carolina.
