Tower Turns Orange for Men’s Swimming & Diving National Title


The UT Tower will be lit in burnt orange with a numeral “1” on all four sides this evening (March 27) to commemorate the Texas men’s swimming and diving program’s 12th NCAA team title.

Per campus tradition, the University recognizes UT sports programs with a burnt orange lighting of the campus landmark with the numeral “1” appearing on the building’s four sides when a Longhorns team claims a NCAA team title.

Saturday evening, Texas won its second consecutive national title and 12th overall, good for No. 1 all-time alongside Michigan. UT head coach Eddie Reese passed former Ohio State coach Mike Peppe for No. 1 all-time with his 12 NCAA men’s swimming and diving team titles.
