On Wednesday, Texas had a bye week inserted into its schedule.
The Big 12 has announced that TCU is postponing its next two weeks of competitions “in accordance with Big 12 Conference volleyball match interruption guidelines.” That decision directly impacts Texas, which was supposed to travel to Fort Worth next Friday and Saturday. The Big 12 also called off this week’s matches between TCU and Kansas.
