After sweeping three consecutive opponents last weekend the No. 18/20 Gator volleyball team heads to State College to participate in the third annual Nike Big Four Classic. The Orange and Blue will face two powerful opponents this weekend starting with a game this afternoon against No. 2 Texas. Gator head coach Mary Wise says Texas will definitely be a good challenge for her squad.
The height the Longhorns possess may pose a problem for the Gators, so Wise says her team needs to take full advantage of serves.
Following Friday’s match, the Gators will take on yet another top 10 team when they face No.6 Stanford on Saturday. Coach Wise says going back to back with these clubs provides her team with a great gauge to measure themselves with for the rest of the season.
Today’s game against Texas begins at 4:30 p.m. and Saturday’s match is set to start at 4 p.m. Both games will be played at Rec Hall on the Penn State campus.
