Undefeated Horns head to College Station

Wes Maulsby

Texas has won every meet it has competed in so far this season and will be taking some momentum and confidence into the Big 12 Cross Country Championships this weekend in College Station. The 6,000-meter race will begin at 11 a.m. at Pebble Creek Country Club.

Texas Tech will be trying to take the title for a fourth year in a row but will have an uphill battle. The Red Raiders are currently unranked behind three teams in the conference.

Texas leads the pack as No. 11, followed immediately by Iowa State at No. 12. Oklahoma State comes in at No. 30.

Texas has won every meet so far this year, some by a wide point margin. The Longhorns have a good chance to knock Texas Tech and will be trying to get their first conference championship since 1989. With the Regional Championships in mid-November and the National Championships nine days later, a strong showing this weekend could continue Texas’ momentum and give it more confidence heading into the end of the season.
