DOVER, Del. - No. 7 Baylor equestrian (4-4, 2-1 Big 12) will face No. 10 South Carolina (2-7, 0-6 SEC) on Friday, March 2, at 10 a.m. and unranked Delaware State (0-7, 0-4 UEC) on Saturday, March 3, at 10 a.m. at the Dovington Training Center in Felton, Del., in a weekend tournament hosted by Delaware State.
The first meet of the tournament for the Bears will be the first time BU and South Carolina have faced off since a road meet on Sep. 23, 2016, where the Bears fell, 12-6, to the Gamecocks.
Saturday's competition will also be the first time BU and DSU have met in the ring since the Delaware State tournament on Nov. 11-12, 2016, where the Bears took down the Hornets with a 13-3 win.
The Bears are most recently coming off of a difficult 14-4 road loss to No. 3 Texas A&M, where BU was held scoreless in horsemanship, but managed to grind out points in each of the other three events.
The Gamecocks are coming off a 12-7 loss to No. 2 Auburn (7-3, 4-2 SEC) in USC’s home arena.
The Hornets are coming off a 9-7 loss to No. 8 South Dakota State, despite claiming three MOP awards.
