BYU excited to compete against future Big 12 opponent TCU


PROVO, Utah — BYU swim and dive will host the TCU Horned Frogs at the Richards Building Pool on Thursday and Friday, Oct. 13 and 14. 

Following a successful performance at the Intermountain Shootout, the Cougars are looking forward to the challenge of competing against one of their future Big 12 foes.

"This is the first Big 12 team to come to Provo since the announcement and we appreciate Coach James Winchester for making it happen," Coach Shari Skabelund said. "Our goal is to keep the momentum going on Thursday and Friday. We love to compete and find ways to get better." 

TCU and BYU last faced off in 2011, one year after the Cougars and Horned Frogs left the Mountain West Conference. The teams and coaches are looking forward to renewing this rivalry in this and the coming years. 

Coach Tyce Routson added, "There is a lot of excitement and energy about this rivalry for years to come! Our team is ready to perform at the next level." 

Thursday's meet will be held at 4 p.m. MDT and Friday's meet will be held at 10 a.m. MDT. Both meets will be non-ticketed events with free admission to the public.
