The Cyclone volleyball team will face the Horned Frogs of Texas Christian University Saturday at noon in Hilton Coliseum. TCU is the first of two new Big 12 Conference members to compete in Ames as league foes. TCU (Fort Worth) and West Virginia University (Morgantown) accepted invitations to join the Big 12 in 2011, and opened their inaugural season of league play this fall.
