AUSTIN, Texas -- The UT Tower will be drenched in burnt orange lighting Sunday evening, Dec. 1, in recognition of The University of Texas Volleyball team’s Big 12 Championship.

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 won its third consecutive Big 12 Championship with a sweep of Kansas State on Saturday evening. The Longhorns have won 20 conference titles in program history, including seven as a member of the Big 12 Conference.

With the outright Big 12 title, the Longhorns earn an automatic berth in the NCAA Championship. The field for the tournament will be announced Sunday evening following the tower lighting at 8:30 p.m. Central on ESPNU.

 

Sound off below and congratulate the Texas Volleyball team!
