BATON ROUGE - After having the match rescheduled, the No. 25 LSU men's tennis team (3-1) will take on the No. 56 Rice Owls (2-4) this Thursday, February 14 at 1 p.m. CT at W.T. "Dub" Robinson Stadium.

Ten days will have passed since the Tigers' last match, which they defeated No. 55 South Florida (3-3) 5-2 on February 3 at the Dub.

LSU is 13-17-2 all-time against Rice, and they hope to notch their 14th victory over the Owls this Thursday.

"Rice is a very similar team and we're expecting a difficult match," LSU head coach Jeff Brown said. "We're very leery of their team. We know they're super talented and we're going to have to be very focused to have to come out on top."

Come out and support the Tigers at the Dub and enjoy free pizza.
