BATON ROUGE -- The Lady Tigers (2-0) will host Southern Methodist University (1-0) Saturday at noon CT at the W. T. "Dub" Robinson Stadium.

The Lady Tigers battled several SMU players at the Rice Invitational held during the fall season, including No. 112 Kaitlin Burns' 5-7, 6-2, 7-5 victory over the Mustangs' Heidi Stewart during the first round of competition.

LSU holds an all-time 15-4 record against the Mustangs, who they last met in 2011.

Last weekend the team hosted Northwestern State University and Southern University for the home opening double header that kicked off LSU's spring season, and the Lady Tigers notched victories in both matches. After an almost five hour match and a 4-3 triumph over Northwestern State, LSU swept Southern 7-0.

The LSU vs. Grambling State match that was previously scheduled for Saturday at 6 p.m. will now be Feb. 23 at 6 p.m. following a 1 p.m. matchup against Nicholls State.
