- ORU is a perfect 4-0 against South Dakota. ORU swept the regular season meetings in 2011-12 in the only meetings as league opponents. The two teams also faced off in 1970 and 1973.
- A win Saturday would keep ORU in the hunt for a regular season championship. The Golden Eagles are currently one loss back of South Dakota State and North Dakota State in a three-way tie for third.
- A loss Saturday would drop ORU into the bottom half of the conference standings and be the first ever loss to USD.
