Texas to play 10th all-time NCAA Tournament match in Austin when Longhorns take on Lamar

The UT Tower will shine with burnt orange lights Tuesday, November 7 to celebrate the Texas Soccer team winning the Big 12 Conference Championship.

In its final season in the league, The University of Texas women’s soccer program will arrive in the Southeastern Conference (SEC) next season as the reigning Big 12 Conference Champions following the Longhorns’ 3-1 win over No. 6 BYU in the finals of the 2023 Sprouts Farmers Market Big 12 Soccer Championship on Saturday night.

The result gives the program its first postseason Big 12 championship since 2007, when the Longhorns capped a two-championship-in-two-year span after also earning the trophy in 2006.

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

Having earned the Big 12 Conference’s automatic berth into the NCAA Tournament as a result of Saturday evening’s match, Texas (15-4-2) will play Lamar, the Southland Conference’s postseason tournament champions, at 6 p.m. CT inside Mike A. Myers Stadium on the campus of The University of Texas on Friday, Nov. 10.
