Soccer to Play Host to McNeese St.

BATON ROUGE – The LSU soccer team will carry an 11-game home unbeaten streak into Sunday’s match against in-state rival McNeese State as the Tigers will battle the Cowgirls in their final match of the non-conference season with kickoff set for 1 p.m. CDT at the LSU Soccer Complex.

Sunday’s match marks the eighth meeting in the all-time series between the two teams on the soccer pitch as LSU (2-4-1) has posted a 6-1 mark in seven previous matches against McNeese State (2-6). The Tigers and Cowgirls have not met since the 2007 season when LSU posted a 5-0 shutout in Baton Rouge.

LSU is riding an impressive 11-game home unbeaten streak that dates back to a 3-0 victory over Southern Miss during the 2009 non-conference season on Aug. 28 of last year.
