The Mustangs are back in action Saturday for an 11 a.m. road dual at North Texas. Live results for the meet can be found on the Meet Mobile App, and the swimming portion of the event will stream from Facebook Live on the Mean Green swimming and diving page.

SMU won last season’s match-up, a 212.50-87.50 victory in Dallas, and the last time the teams squared off in Denton (2017), the Mustangs posted a 143-99 win.
