Baylor Volleyball Hosts Oklahoma for Saturday Match

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

Baylor volleyball (17-6, 5-2) closes the first half of the double round-robin conference schedule, squaring off with the Oklahoma Sooners (12-8, 3-4) on Saturday at 2 p.m. in the Ferrell Center.

The Bears notched a historic program victory on Wednesday, downing Iowa State in Ames for the first time since 2005.
