11/26/2017Light the Tower: Texas Volleyball Celebrates 2017 Big 12 Championship

The UT Tower will be lit on Sunday evening, Nov. 26, in recognition of the University of Texas Volleyball team to celebrate the Longhorns’ 2017 Big 12 Championship.

Texas earned the title outright on Wednesday, Nov. 22 with its 3-0 defeat of Oklahoma at Gregory Gym.

It marks the Longhorn’s 10th Big 12 Championship and 23rd conference championship (13 SWC Championships).

Per UT tradition, the campus landmark is bathed in burnt orange lighting from top to bottom when a University of Texas athletics team wins a conference championship.

Texas will learn its postseason fate during the NCAA Selection Show, scheduled to begin at 8 p.m. CT on Sunday on ESPNU.
