The No. 19-ranked UCLA swimming and diving team is scheduled to take part in the 2021 Pac-12 Swimming & Diving Championships from Wednesday, Feb. 24 through Saturday, Feb. 27.

This year's conference meet will take place in split locations, with swimmers competing at the University of Houston and divers at the University of Arizona.

All four days of the Pac-12 Championships will be broadcast or streamed by the Pac-12 Networks. The finals sessions of days one and two will be available via live stream, while the finals sessions for days three and four will be shown live on Pac-12 Networks.

Live scoring will be available through the Pac-12 website, and fans can also follow along for UCLA-related updated on Twitter at @UCLASwimAndDive

The 2021 Pac-12 Swimming Championships will open on Wednesday night at 4:00 p.m. PT with the 800 free relay and 400 medley relay. Diving also gets underway that day with the 1M competition, with finals starting at 12:30 p.m. PT.

Thursday's competition brings 3M diving, 500 free, 200 IM, 50 free, and 200 free relay.

Friday's finals include the 400 IM, 100 fly, 200 free, 100 breast, 200 medley relay, and platform diving.

The championships conclude on Sunday with the 1650 free, 200 back, 100 free, 200 breast, 200 fly, and 400 free relay.

The Bruins enter the league championship with a 2-1 record in dual meets.
