If you look at the Texas volleyball team's schedule, you'll see that the Horns played their Big 12 opener nearly a month ago at West Virginia. If you ask the team, they'll tell you Saturday's game against OU really feels like the first conference match.
Much has happened since August 29th when Texas played West Virginia. That game was sandwiched between non conference matches. The Horns have played 7 since, including their first losses of the year, and now they feel like they can truly turn their focus toward the Big 12.
