Light the Tower: Longhorns Win Big 12 Titles

The UT Tower will shine with burnt orange lights Sunday, May 15 in celebration of the Texas Longhorns winning three Big 12 titles.

Texas Rowing is the Big 12 Conference Champion for the seventh consecutive year, and the Texas Track and Field Men’s and Women’s teams completed a back-to-back sweep of the outdoor Big 12 Championship.

The No. 1 Rowing team won the 2022 Big 12 title with a clean sweep of five races at Walter E. Long Lake on Sunday morning. It marked the seventh consecutive and 11th overall league title for the Longhorns. Additionally, the team’s first-place finish secured a trip to the 2022 NCAA Championships set for May 27-29 in Sarasota, Fla. where the Longhorns will look to defend their national title.

Per tradition, the University recognizes UT sports programs who win a conference team championship with a burnt orange lighting of the campus landmark.
