Texas was in perfect position. Up 21-20 in the third set against BYU, the fifth-seeded Longhorns were set up to get right back in the game after dropping the first two sets. But that’s where it all fell apart.
Behind Mezes Hall stands a grove of oak trees. Under them, the unmarked grave of UT’s first mascot, a pit bull terrier named Pig Bellmont. Now, three students are requesting the University place a marker on the burial spot to honor him.
After dropping back to back home games to ranked opponents, the Longhorns find themselves in an unfamiliar position. They welcomed No. 9 Tennessee into the Frank Erwin Center and tried to right the wrongs that led to a blowout loss to No. 6 Mississippi State last week.
