WACO -The No. 8 Baylor equestrian team (4-3) will host a pair of ranked opponents, beginning with No. 1 South Carolina (3-0) on Saturday at 10 a.m. and No. 7 TCU (3-2) on Sunday at 1 p.m. Both matches will be held at Willis Family Equestrian Center and are free and open to the public.
"We have two really tough matches to end the fall," head coach Ellen White said. "Finishing the season strong will give us a lot of momentum heading to the offseason"
The Bears enter Saturday's match after snapping its three-match losing streak to Fresno State on Nov 9. The match against USC will mark the second time this fall the Bears have taken on a No. 1 ranked team, as BU fell to then-No. 1 Georgia 14-10 on Oct. 12.
South Carolina defeated Georgia 11-8 on Nov. 2 and will take on No. 4 Texas A&M on Friday, prior to arriving in Waco.
The Horned Frogs come to Waco for the first time as a member of the Big 12 Conference. TCU split a pair of conference road matches, falling at Kansas State 9-7 before knocking off Oklahoma State 10-9 on Nov. 3.
These two matches will mark the end of the fall season for Baylor.
