The No. 16 Texas A&M women's swimming & diving team travels to Houston to take on Rice in the first road meet of the season. This is the 15th meet up between the Aggies and Owls with A&M defeating Rice in all 14 previous meetings. The diving squad will head to Boston, Massachusetts, this weekend with the men's team for a double-dual meet against Harvard and Duke. The swim team takes on Rice at 1 p.m., while the diving squad starts at 9 a.m. on Saturday November 9th.
