Louisiana State has only played two games this month due to Hurricanes Gustav and Ike but stand undefeated at 5-0 and in search of a school-record sixth consecutive win.  The Tigers have stayed unbeaten with plenty of offensive firepower that has outscored opponents 17-2.  LSU most recently topped Centenary, 7-0, on Sept. 14. 

LSU leads the all-time series with OU, 1-0-1.  The Sooners and Tigers battled to a 2-2 double overtime draw in the last meeting on Oct. 3, 1999 in Norman.  In that game, the Sooners recorded a program-record 51 shots, a mark that still stands today.  LSU won the first meeting on Nov. 3, 1996 in Baton Rouge, 2-0.

The first 500 fans will receive OU soccer rally towels and the concession stand will be grilling out in the courtyard.  In addition, the following promos are planned:

- Youth Soccer Month Celebration Day
- Camp and Clinic Reunion
- Pregame inflatable games for kids
- Fireworks after each Sooner goal scored
- Autographs following the game
