AUSTIN, Texas — The Kansas women’s soccer team wraps up its three-game stretch of conference games on the road Sunday at No. 22 Texas. The match will kickoff at 1 p.m. CT from Mike A. Myers Stadium and Soccer Field and be broadcast on the Longhorn Network.
Kansas (7-6-1, 0-3-1 Big 12) is seeking its first conference win of the season. The Jayhawks nearly had that victory at Baylor on Thursday night, but the Bears scored two goals late in the match.

Texas (9-1-3, 3-0-1 Big 12) enters Sunday’s match ranked No. 22 in the Top Drawer Soccer poll. The Longhorns currently sit in first place in the Big 12 standings. Trinity Byars leads Texas and the conference with 11 goals this season.
The Longhorns lead the all-time series 18-8-3 against KU. The Jayhawks dropped last year’s match 2-0 in Lawrence. Kansas did earn a 1-0 win its most recent time in Austin on Sept. 11, 2020. Ceri Holland scored the game-winning goal in the 81st minute of the match.
