Baylor Volleyball Set to Face No. 4 Texas

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Baylor volleyball (15-5, 3-1) will square off with the 4th-ranked Texas Longhorns (13-2, 5-0) on Wednesday evening at 7 p.m. in the Ferrell Center.

In a battle of two of the top teams in the Big 12 this season, the Bears have a shot at downing one of the nation’s top teams, making it four out of the last five weeks with a win over a top-20 RPI team.

The Bears had a lone match in the previous week, a sweep over TCU on Wednesday, Oct. 5 in the Ferrell Center.

In a season of firsts, the BU squad could add an exclamation point with a win over the Longhorns, recording the program’s third win overall against Texas and the first since 2001.

The midweek match will be aired on FOX Sports Southwest and FOX College Sports Central. The on-air talent will feature the Voice of the Bears, John Morris, and former Baylor volleyball standout, Kristen Schramek Bates.

For this and all other Baylor home matches, fans can tune into the live internet video and radio broadcast on BaylorBears.com/allaccess.
