Given it was Fall Break, and there was no home football game. It’s fair to assume many students traveled over the weekend. While the campus population went home or went elsewhere, many Bears were competing in their respective sport.

Here is everything you may have missed over the long weekend.

No. 16 Baylor volleyball falls to Goliath in clash with No. 1 Texas

No. 18 Baylor volleyball put up a strong fight, but ultimately fell to No. 1 University of Texas in four sets. The loss snaps a 14-match win streak in the Ferrell Center, the last home loss also coming at the hands of Texas last season. Despite the third-largest volleyball crowd of 5,604 in attendance, this was almost played on neutral grounds with a tremendous amount of UT supporters packing the seats.
