NORMAN, Okla. -- The Sooners will tackle a Nebraska team on Sunday, Oct. 11 at 1 p.m. that is undefeated at home in eight games (6-0-2).  The contest will pit the No. 1 and No. 2 goal scorers in the country in NU's Morgan Marlborough (16 goals) and OU's Whitney Palmer (12). 

The Cornhuskers topped Oklahoma State and Wisconsin-Green Bay last weekend in Lincoln.  Nebraska (7-2-4, 1-1-2) has one loss in the last 11 games after tying Baylor, 1-1, Friday at the Nebraska Soccer Field.

Nebraska returns 16 letterwinners and seven starters from last season's team that finished 10-9-1 overall and fifth in the Big 12 standings at 6-4-0.  Marlborough's 16 goals and 36 points pace all players in the Big 12 Conference.  She has two goals in three Big 12 games opposite Palmer's league-high five goals in four conference games.

The Huskers have won each of the last four meetings in the series and own an 11-2 advantage all-time.  NU won last year's contest, 1-0, in Norman.  The game was the seventh straight decided by one goal between OU and NU.  The Sooners won the 2004 game, 1-0, at home and its other win in the series also came in Norman and was a one-goal decision (2-1 in 2000).
