Although Texas recently lost in its dual meet against Arkansas, on Jan. 9 it was listed as the No. 3 team in the preseason indoor national team rankings by the USTFCCCA.
The Longhorns are approaching this season with a strong team, consisting of many All-Americans led by 18th-year coach, Bubba Thornton.
Several of the distance runners raced this past fall for the cross-country team, which finished ninth at nationals. Junior runner Ryan Dohner has received all-league honors six times, while senior Patrick McGregor has earned five All-Big 12 honors.
To open the season, Texas travels to Fayetteville, Ark., to compete in the Razorback Team Invitational on Friday and Saturday, where it will take on Arkansas, which is No. 1 in the preseason rankings.
