Auburn’s swimming and diving teams will be in Austin, Texas, on Monday for a dual meet with Texas. The meet will pit Auburn’s No. 13 men and No. 12 women against Texas’ No. 2 men and No. 5 women.
“It is going to be a challenge for us to go in there and find ways that we can get wins,” Auburn head coach Brett Hawke said, “but that’s what we are prepared for and we are happy to go in there and text ourselves.
“When you look at it on paper there are events that they can win and then some events that we can win and then there are races that are going to be very close,” Hawke said. “The 50-50 ones are the ones where you hope we are hungry enough and competitive enough to get our hands on the wall first.”
Texas, which has won the last three men’s national championships, has a four-meet winning streak over Auburn on the men’s side while Auburn’s women are looking for their first win over the Longhorns since 2013.
Diving begins at 11 a.m. CT and swimming at noon. Live results will be available at http://sidearmstats.com/texas/swim/index.htm.
