ATHENS, Ga. --- The Georgia swimming and diving teams will face one of their most challenging road trips in recent history with a two-day swing through Texas.
On Friday at 1 p.m., Georgia will take on SEC foe Texas A&M in College Station. Georgia then will head to Austin to face Texas on Saturday at 11 a.m.
The No. 4 Lady Bulldogs are off to a 7-0 start, including a 3-0 mark against SEC opponents. Texas A&M is ranked No. 2 with a 4-0 overall record and a 2-0 slate in the SEC. The Texas women, coached by former Georgia assistant Carol Capitani, are 4-2 and ranked eighth.
On the men's side, the 10th-ranked Bulldogs are 6-1 overall and 2-1 in the SEC. Unranked Texas A&M is 1-1 and 0-1, while the second-ranked Longhorns boast a 2-1 record.
"This is the kind of weekend where teams find out what they're made of," said Harvey Humphries, Georgia's Senior Associate Head Coach. "Going on the road is difficult enough. And when you take on two quality programs like A&M and Texas, you get pushed to the limit. We're closing in on the championship part of the season, and meets like these can only help us get better."
The Lee and Joe Jamail Texas Swimming Center will serve as the host venue for the women's NCAA Championships in March.
