UT's Tower will take on an orange glow to celebrate the women's golf team's Big-12 Championship

The University of Texas tower will be orange tomorrow night, in celebration of another Big-12 conference championship for the school.

The women's golf team took conference honors at the Big-12 Championship in Columbia, MO over the weekend.  It's their third conference championship since 2004.

According to a UT Athletics news release:

Per UT tradition, the campus landmark is bathed in burnt orange lighting from top to bottom when a University of Texas athletics team wins a conference championship.

The Longhorns are now off to the NCAA Division I women's golf championship, which are conveniently located this year at Texas A&M's Heritage Club just outside of Bryan.
