NCAA Week 3 Preview and Schedule

The top two SEC programs – Florida (No. 3) and LSU (No. 5) – meet in Baton Rouge tonight for the must-see meet of the week (though I think the Lexie Priessman and Amelia Hundley “rival teams but BFFs” fluff is going to be even more of a must-see event for me #ShippingSince2010).

LSU got off to a bit of a slower start than expected, and they’re still looking to break that 197 mark that only four teams so far have reached this year, but it’s LSU at home with a big rival competitor. They’ll make it happen.

The Gators, meanwhile, will hope to build on a solid opening. While watching them vault last week, I was like oof, this is going to be a rough season if this is any indication. Then they got to bars and were like “just kidding.” They looked incredible for the rest of the evening, including a brilliant debut from Trinity Thomas, so if they can keep that going tonight, this is going to be a close one.

Oklahoma (No. 1) competes at a low-key tri-meet on Saturday afternoon against North Carolina (No. 34) and Ball State (No. 46), while Utah (No. 4) will see some Pac 12 action at Oregon State (No. 21). Oklahoma is like, hey, is it April yet, and Utah also looks super strong, but I’m hoping we see the Beavers make some progress to improve their ranking this weekend.

After a whirlwind week for viral legend Katelyn Ohashi, it’s probably nice that UCLA (No. 2) gets the weekend off before returning early in week four. Otherwise, we look forward to seeing how Georgia (No. 10) and Alabama (No. 17) can turn things around in tonight’s meet-up, and I’m very excited to see if Rocky Mountain range faves BYU (No. 6). Boise State (No. 7), and Denver (No. 8) can keep the magic alive to stay in the top ten. The first two are hitting the road this week, which is always tough, but the Pioneers will return home and could definitely see a rise in the standings after tonight.

Michigan (No. 10) will also return home tonight after two road meets that took them to Cancun and Tuscaloosa (same thing amirite) and I have a feeling it’s going to be a hell of a welcome party for freshman Natalie Wojcik, who will probably get a 10 on vault if she sticks it. Even if she doesn’t stick it, I hope they give her a backdated 10 for what she did in week one because, as Tyra Banks says…

The full schedule for week three 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 the results. Enjoy!
