NORMAN, Okla. --  The OU soccer team will look to build off its first Big 12 win on Friday when it hosts No. 6 Texas A&M (8-2-1, 2-1 Big 12) on Sunday at 1 p.m. at John Crain Field.

On Friday night in Norman, the Sooners ended a three-game scoring drought by posting three goals on the visiting Baylor Bears in a 3-1 victory. 

The Sooners are unbeaten at home in the last nine games dating back to Sept. 24, 2006.  OU is 8-0-1 in that span and has outscored its opponents, 29-4 (16-2 advantage in 2007).

Texas A&M is coming off a 2-1 comeback win over Oklahoma State on Friday in Stillwater.  The Cowgirls took a 1-0 lead in the first half but could not hold off the Aggies.

Tickets are available for Sunday's game through the OU Ticket Office online at or by calling 800-456-4668.  On Sunday, free team photos will be available for a post-game autograph session.

The then-No. 3 Aggies suffered a 3-2 loss in double overtime at then-No. 16 Missouri last Friday.  Texas A&M bounced back two days later with a 5-1 win over Kansas in College Station.  The Aggies are 3-2-1 away from home in 2007.
