Four matches on TV Wednesday night:


No. 7 Texas at TCU

8 p.m.

Texas looks to make it win number 13 in a row when it travels to Forth Worth to take on TCU. The 18-3 Longhorns are hitting .320 while holding opponents to a .142 hitting percentage. 

Haley Eckerman continues to be a dominating force for Texas, who sits atop the conference standings at 10-0. The reigning Big 12 Player of the Week, Eckerman is seventh in the nation in blocks (3.14) and sixth in hitting percentage (.298). She leads all Big 12 players in kills (4.60 kps) and points (5.28 pps), while sitting in second for service aces (0.42).

The Horned Frogs are 13-9 on the season and 2-7 in their first season of Big 12 play. TCU will take on its third-straight ranked opponent and fourth in the last five matches. Junior Yvonne Igodan leads the Frogs at 3.28 kills per set with an attack percentage of .325. Sophomore Mattie Burleson is TCU’s block leader at 1.31 per set, while senior Megan Munce headlines TCU and the Big 12 in aces per set with 0.46.

at Washington State

10 p.m.
Pac-12 Network

Colorado sits at 14-10 overall and 4-8 in conference action. The Buffs are currently in a three-way tie for seventh place in the Pac-12. Buffalo freshman Alexis Austin hammered a career-best 18 kills in their last outing to help Colorado defeat Oregon State in four sets.

Washington State is hoping for its first conference win after going 0-12 to start the Pac 12 season. The Cougars, who are 10-14 overall, have not had it easy, playing three consecutive ranked teams, two of which were on the road. Washington State will enjoy some time in Pullman, with its next three matches at home. Sitting at fifth in the conference in assists (10.24 aps) is Camryn Irwin, who is a starter at the setter position for the second-straight season.

No. 17 San Diego
at No. 18 BYU

10 p.m.

It will be a battle for first place in the West Coast Conference when BYU and San Diego meet up on Wednesday for this nationally televised contest. Both are 9-2 in conference play, with the two losses on both team’s conference records coming to Saint Mary’s and Santa Clara.

The Cougars are 21-2 after two road wins against Gonzaga and Portland. BYU looks to defend its undefeated home record (8-0) against San Diego, which holds a 5-3 road record this season.  BYU also has won six out of its last seven matches and middle blocker Nicole Warner ranks No. 1 in the nation in blocks, averaging 1.75 blocks per set.

San Diego is coming off a loss to Santa Clara Saturday, which put the Toreros' record at 17-4. San Diego relies on middle hitters Chloe Ferrari and Katie Hoekman to lead the offense. Ferrari averages 2.79 kills per set and Hoekman averages 2.64. Hoekman also leads in blocks with 1.11 per set.

No. 22 Purdue at Illinois

8 p.m.
Big Ten Network

It’s a tale of two different stories for these squads with Purdue winning its last two outings, while Illinois has lost three consecutive matches. The national runner up from a year ago, Illinois has struggled this season sporting a 10-12 mark overall and a 4-8 record in the Big Ten. Outside hitter Jocelynn Birks leads the Illinois offense with 4.01 kills per set, while also serving up a team-best 18 aces.

A win against Illinois would be pretty big for Purdue. Not only would it be the Boilermakers first win in Champaign since Oct. 8, 2006, it would also mean a season series sweep for Purdue for the first time in seven years. Purdue defeated Illinois 3-2 earlier in the year in West Lafayette. Kiki Jones is hitting a team-best .383 clip for the Boilermakers, while Ariel Turner paces Purdue with 4.28 kills and 2.67 digs per set.
