LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Texas and Oregon each has reason to believe it is a team of destiny Saturday night in the NCAA women's volleyball championship.
The third-seeded Longhorns (28-4) have earned their second title-game appearance in four years, hoping to claim their first national championship since 1998. They overcame a 2-1 deficit to beat Michigan in five sets Thursday night in the semifinals and now aim to close the deal after blowing a 2-0 lead against Penn State in the 2009 final.
Oregon (30-4) will be making its championship debut after a four-set upset victory over top-seeded Penn State. While that outcome stunned many who believed the Nittany Lions were a championship lock, the fifth-seeded Ducks always believed they could do it and are eager to continue that roll for one more game.
