Head coach Sunny Golloway is now 24-18 in NCAA Tournament games at OU.

Friday's game against LSU marked the fourth time the teams have met in NCAA play, all regionals at LSU.

Both teams made the College World Series in 1994, but they didn't meet that year. LSU went 0-2 while Oklahoma claimed its second national title.

On Saturday, Oklahoma will try again for its first win over LSU since an 11-inning, 9-7 win at New Orleans in 1989. The Sooners trail the all-time series 3-7.

BIG CROWD, NO PROBLEM

Friday's crowd of 11,095 was the largest Oklahoma has played in front of since 24,180 watched the Sooners drop a 3-2 decision to South Carolina at the 2010 College World Series at Rosenblatt Stadium. Paid attendance was 12,007 while the actual number was an LSU record.

“It's just a great environment to play for college athletes, and it was one heck of a college baseball game,” Golloway said. “I'm glad the country got to see it.”
