CONWAY, Ark. — No. 2 seed UTSA will meet I-35 rival and Southland Conference Regular Season Champion Texas State in the Southland Tournament Championship Match at 2 p.m. on Sunday. The match will be televised by the Southland Television Network (check local listings/KCWX Channel 2 in San Antonio) and also can be seen on ESPN3.com.

The defending champion Roadrunners (22-10) swept No. 3 seed Sam Houston State on Saturday evening to advance and it was the team's 17th three-set win of the season.

Meanwhile, Texas State (26-7) fended off fourth-seeded Central Arkansas in a five-set thriller in Saturday's nightcap to force a third meeting of the fall with its rival to the south.

Sunday's contest will mark the 53rd all-time matchup between the two teams (Texas State leads, 50-12).

The two schools, which are separated by just 53 miles, have split their previous two meetings this season. UTSA swept the Bobcats in the league opener on Sept. 22 in San Marcos, but Texas State ended the Roadrunners' 14-match home winning streak with a four-set victory 10 days ago.

The winner will earn the Southland's automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament, which begins Dec. 2 at campus sites across the country.
