OKLAHOMA GAME TO AIR ON ESPNU
For the fourth consecutive season, the Missouri Tigers will play a game televised nationally on ESPNU. This season, Mizzou's matchup with Oklahoma in Norman, Okla., on Oct. 16 will be aired on the network.
In 2008, Missouri's games against Texas and Texas A&M were broadcast nationally on ESPNU. The Tigers and Aggies' games in 2009 and 2010 were also aired on the channel.
Baylor enters Friday's game against the Tigers with an 11-2-2 overall mark and a 3-1-1 record in Big 12 play.
Junior Dana Larson leads the Bears with six goals for 12 points, while junior Lisa Sliwinski and freshman Alexa Wilde each have four tallies this year. Senior goalie Courtney Seelhorst has played every minute in net this season and has a 0.52 goals against average and a .843 save percentage.
Oklahoma has a 5-9 overall record and is 0-3 in Big 12 games entering this weekend.
Four different Sooners have notched a team-high four goals so far this year, with junior Dria Hampton leading the way with 12 points and junior Caitlin Mooney right behind at 11.
TIGERS DEFEAT SIUE, 4-0
Mizzou recorded a 4-0 win over SIUE in its only action last weekend. The victory marked the end of one of the most successful non-conference campaigns in Mizzou history. The Tigers finished with a 9-2 non-conference record, for a winning percentage of .909, which is the highest in school history. The 2007 squad held the previous record a winning percentage of .889, going 8-1.
Mizzou's four goals came from four different sources. Senior Kelsey Blincow opened scoring two minutes into the game off a penalty kick for her third goal of the season.
Freshman Abi Raymer also notched her third goal of the season when she scored Mizzou's third goal of the game in the 58th minute off an assist from fellow freshman Kaysie Clark. The Tigers closed out scoring in the 62nd minute when senior Kendra Collins headed home a corner knick from Blincow to record her first goal of the season.
The Missouri defense, led by Missourians, juniors Jessica Greer and Allison Hu and senior Mallory Stipetich, earned its eighth shutout of the season, which ranks as the second-most shutouts in a season.
TIGERS SET NON-CONFERENCE WINNING PERCENTAGE RECORD
With MU's 4-0 win over SIUE on Oct. 7, the team finished non-conference play with a 9-2 record to set a new program non-conference winning percentage record of .909.
Before the victory over SIUE, the 2007 squad's 8-1 mark against non-conference squads stood as the leader with a winning percentage of .889.
MISSOURI DEFENSE WITH eight SHUTOUTS SO FAR THIS SEASON
MU's 4-0 shutout of SIUE on Oct. 7 marked the team's eighth shutout of the season. The mark ranks as the second-most shutouts in a season at MU, only behind the record 12 shutouts the 2008 squad compiled.
Goalkeeper McKenzie Sauerwein has six of the shutouts while she split the other two with Caroline Stanley. Sauerwein, Stanley and the backline of senior Mallory Stipetich and juniors Jessica Greer and Allison Hu has been stellar all season, allowing just 0.80 goals per game.

The mark tied the program record for consecutive wins set during the 2006 season. During that year, Missouri posted seven consecutive wins from Aug. 25 - Sept. 15.
