Best bet on the Tube

 

Texas and Oregon each has reason to believe it is a team of destiny tonight in the NCAA women’s volleyball championship ( 4 p.m., ESPN2). The third-seeded Longhorns (28-4) have earned their second title-game appearance in four years, hoping to claim their first national championship since 1998. They overcame a 2-1 deficit to beat Michigan in five sets Thursday night in the semifinals and now aim to close the deal after blowing a 2-0 lead against Penn State in the 2009 final. Oregon (30-4) will be making its championship debut after a four-set upset victory over top-seeded Penn State. – Associated Press
