The SEC is super splintered this week, with most teams getting experience outside the conference, though No. 5 Florida at No. 20 Missouri is the exception on Friday night, with the Gators hoping for a big score on the road. With the RQS, Florida is currently counting a 196.325 from their third week of competition, but if they’re able to reach a solid 197, they’ll be in a much better position to rank up where LSU and Utah currently stand.
Otherwise in the SEC, we’ll see No. 6 Alabama at No. 35 North Carolina, No. 9 Kentucky hosting No. 21 Ohio State, No. 10 Arkansas hosting No. 36 Arizona, and No. 17 Georgia at the Elevate the Stage meet in August, where they’ll see competition from No. 16 Nebraska, No. 26 Stanford, and No. 33 Illinois.
The other top-ranked teams we’ll see on Friday night include No. 14 Boise State hosting No. 55 Sacramento State, No. 18 California hosting No. 29 Central Michigan, No. 19 George Washington at No. 46 Towson with No. 51 Rutgers along for the ride, and No. 24 BYU at No. 38 Utah State for an MRGC rival meet that should be tons of fun.
No. 1 Oklahoma, currently leading the RQS by over two tenths, competes on a slow Saturday meet day, hosting No. 7 Michigan while we’ll also see No. 11 Washington competing at No. 28 Southern Utah while No. 13 Arizona State will travel to No. 25 Minnesota, where they’ll hope to drop a 195.4 road score if they can look as good as they do at home to improve their ranking.
Sunday’s big meet is No. 3 LSU hosting No. 15 Auburn, which LSU is calling “Championships Sunday” since the SEC’s regular season title is on the line. LSU has already clinched a share of the title, but if they can put up a blow-out score (which you know they will), they’ll be able to secure their second straight regular season SEC title in a row. LSU’s scoring has been pretty chill at home for the most part, but the team’s last home meet saw the judges getting a little wild, so for something this big, I’m not expecting anything less than Carol-levels of insanity. Good for them, though. They look fabulous this year and are clearly the strongest in their conference.
No. 16 Nebraska and No. 19 George Washington will both be back for a two-meet weekend on Sunday, as the Huskers will host No. 2 UCLA, No. 23 Iowa State, and No. 37 Kent State while GWU returns home to host No. 32 Maryland, No. 46 Towson, and No. 51 Rutgers.
The WIAC Championships also take place on Sunday afternoon, with all eight WIAC programs coming together to fight for spots at nationals, and we can expect a super exciting battle between University of Wisconsin rivals La Crosse and Whitewater, ranked first and second in the conference in addition to being two of the best D3 teams in the country.
Looking into week ten, we’ll see No. 8 Oregon State hosting No. 24 BYU while No. 12 Denver will host No. 28 Southern Utah on Monday night, and on Thursday, No. 34 New Hampshire will host No. 52 Bridgeport.
The full schedule is below. All times listed are ET, the first team listed is the host team, and we’ll update any links as they are updated on each program’s schedule. Once the meet is finished, we’ll add results. Enjoy!
