Texas A&M (10-5, 3-0 SEC), riding its best-ever start in Southeastern Conference play, puts its undefeated SEC record on the line Friday, when the Aggies take on 11th-ranked Florida (13-3, 4-0 SEC) in Gainesville.

Led by sophomore setter Camille Conner’s triple-double and double-doubles by junior outside hitter Hollann Hans and senior libero Amy Houser, Texas A&M improved to 3-0 in SEC play for the first time since joining the conference with a come-from-behind 3-2 (24-26, 25-21, 20-25, 25-23, 15-13) victory at LSU on Sunday. It was the Aggies’ first true road victory this season, and they extended their winning streak to a season-best three matches.
Florida, the two-time defending SEC co-champion, won its ninth consecutive match and remained undefeated in conference matches with a 3-0 (25-20, 25-20, 26-24) victory at Alabama on Sunday. Taelor Kellum had a match-high 12 kills, and Rachael Kramer had 10 kills while hitting .556 and also added six blocks as the Gators notched their fourth straight sweep.
