The score in the first set was tied at four apiece after White had hit back-to-back kills for Texas to open the match 3-0. The Longhorns responded with a quick 4-0 run through kills from Shook and Ogbogu, forcing TCU's first timeout at 8-4. Growing the lead to as many as eight before set point at 24-17, a block from Ogbogu and Nwanebu secured the first set for Texas.

White and Nwanebu had led Texas with five kills apiece in the first set, and White recorded her sixth on the opening point of the second with a tip for a 1-0 Texas lead. TCU tied on six occasions, but finally at 23-23. A kill from Johnson took Texas to set point at 24-23, preceding the Horned Frogs mishandling an attack from Sun, giving the Longhorns the set at 25-23.

TCU tested Texas' defense after the Longhorns had moved to a 2-0 match score lead. Forcing Texas to come from behind five times, the Horned Frogs fell behind for the first time in the set at 7-6 when Sun and Johnson combined for a block. The block kick-started a decisive run for Texas to secure the match, 18-8, for a third set score of 25-14. (Source: UT Athletics)
