Tower shines orange tonight

The Tower at The University of Texas at Austin is drenched in burnt orange lights this evening (Feb. 27) in recognition of the men's swimming and diving team's victory Saturday at the Big 12 Championships in College Station, Texas.

With this win, the Longhorns secure their 31st consecutive conference championship and 14th Big 12 title.

Per university tradition, the campus landmark is bathed in orange when a university athletics team wins a conference championship.
