When Texas volleyball head coach Jerritt Elliott took the podium on Monday, he spoke with a particular vigor — and for good reason. The Longhorns have had five consecutive wins in straight sets and are turning their sights on their impending clash against No. 1 Baylor.
The Longhorn volleyball team has dominated Big 12 play for the past decade, having won the conference eight times in the past 10 years. After a week of rest, Texas was ready to resume their strong performance with Big 12 teams against the Kansas State Wildcats.
Texas suffered a shocking road loss to then-unranked Rice less than two weeks ago. But 10 days after that defeat, the Longhorns appear to have officially gotten back on the road to a Big 12 Championship.
