The struggling Texas A&M volleyball team will try to end a four-match losing streak when the Aggies play host to Oklahoma on Friday at 6 p.m. at G. Rollie White Coliseum.

The starting time of the match has been moved up so that fans will also have time to attend the Aggie soccer match against Baylor at 8 p.m.

A&M's women have slipped to 9-11 overall and 2-9 in the Big 12. The Aggies, who are in 10th place in the league standings, are coming off a 3-0 loss at No. 14 Texas on Wednesday

Aggie senior Laura Jones, who leads the nation in kills per game, collected 14 kills against Texas to become A&M's all-time kills leader, breaking the previous record of 1,777 set by Kristie Smedsrud (1994-97).

Oklahoma (6-15, 1-11 Big 12) ended a 12-match losing skid with a 3-2 home win over Texas Tech on Wednesday.

Elaine Santos had 18 kills and 10 blocks to lead the Sooners, who had a school-record 42 block assists.

The Aggies have won the last 25 meetings against the Sooners, including all 19 Big 12 matches, and are 28-1 all-time against OU. Oklahoma's only victory against A&M was Sept. 15, 1979, at the North Texas State tournament.

In the most recent meeting, A&M ended a six-match losing skid and picked up its first Big 12 victory of the season on Oct. 8 by defeating the Sooners in Norman.
