    Texas is coming off its fifth sweep in conference play over Kansas State on Saturday. The Longhorns extended their win streak to 11 games with the win and have won 44 consecutive Big 12 matches in their Gregory Gym.

    Texas’ freshman setter Chloe Collins was named Big 12 Rookie of the Week, recording 34 assists against the Wildcats. All-Americans in senior outside hitter Bailey and junior outside hitter Haley Eckerman are pacing the Longhorn offense with 154 and 137 kills, respectively.

    First serve is set for 7 p.m. Audio will be available on GoFrogs.com.
