The Gazelles are facing the most challenging part of the Big 12 schedule beginning this Wednesday at College Station. If they can get wins against A&M, Nebraska and Iowa State in their next 3 matches, they will likely be able to cruise to an outright Big 12 title, go undefeated in Big 12 play, and possibly receive the overall #1 seed for the NCAA tournament. Winning 2 of 3 will probably be enough to get the outright conference title and only slightly impact the chance of getting one of the #1 seeds.
WEDNESDAY: The Gazelles will face the Aggies in College Station for a 7pm match. The match will be broadcast on ESPNU. For those going to the match, be aware that the Aggies have left the building! G. Rollie White no longer plays host to volleyball, the Ags have moved to Reed Arena where the basketball teams play. The Aggies were undefeated in the new digs, until unranked Oklahoma came in last Wednesday night and swept the 21st ranked Aggies. A&M has had a week off to prepare for the Horns. Texas swept A&M in Austin earlier this year.
FRIDAY: The Gazelles return to the friendly confines of Gregory Gym to host the Cornhuskers for a 6pm match. This match will be broadcast on FSN. Earlier this season, Texas took down Nebraska in Lincoln 3-1. The first win in Lincoln since 1988, the last time Texas won a national championship. Tickets are going fast for this one so get yours now if you plan to go. Ticket info.
NEXT WEDNESDAY: The gauntlet finishes with a trip to Ames, Iowa where the team in second place in the Big 12 awaits. This match will be Texas' toughest remaining challenge. More challenging than A&M @ College Station and Nebraska at home. The Cyclones also beat Nebraska in Lincoln 3-2.
