The National Championship match of the 2016 Women’s Division I Volleyball Tournament will be aired on ESPN2 on Saturday night.

After two astounding semifinal upsets, No. 4 Texas will face No. 6 Stanford at 9 PM ET for the NCAA title. The match will be played at Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio.

In the match, Stanford will look to match Penn State’s seven national title, while Texas looks to claim their third title. The Cardinals haven’t won a national title since 2004, while the Longhorns recently claimed the prize in 2012.

The semifinals brought in a large crowd of 16,670 fans in attendance for the matches. The Nationwide Arena can hold up to 19,500 fans. Last seasons National Title match between Nebraska and Texas brought in 17,561 fans to Omaha’s CenturyLink Center – a sell-out crowd for that facility, which is an NCAA record for volleyball.
