NCAA Week 7 Preview and Schedule


Maya Bordas of Cal

We’re more than halfway through the regular season now (how how HOW?!) and this week is a BUSY ONE, including a bunch of big neutral quad meets.

We’ll get two sessions of the GymQuarters Invitational in Missouri on Friday, featuring Iowa State (No. 23), Lindenwood (No. 42), Texas Woman’s (No. 54), and S.E. Missouri (No. 73) in the afternoon and then in the evening, we’ll get an awesome battle between Utah (No. 4) and LSU (No. 5) to see how these two compare when matched head-to-head for the first time this season, with Missouri (No. 15) and Stanford (No. 26) also taking part.

The Perfect 10 Challenge will also be held Friday night in Oklahoma City, featuring competition from top-ranked Oklahoma, Pac 12 programs Washington (No. 18) and Arizona State (No. 19), and George Washington (No. 35).

UCLA (No. 3) is back home on Saturday after a few weeks on the road, hosting Arizona (No. 25), which could be a good time for them to play with some of their depth before the season gets even crazier. Also in the Pac 12, we’ll get a great match between Oregon State (No. 12) and California (No. 14) in Corvallis on Sunday night, with both teams really stepping it up over the past few weeks making this a must-watch this weekend.

Though a couple of SEC programs will take part in these quads, Friday Night Heights will still be going strong, with Florida (No. 2) traveling to Alabama (No. 9), Georgia (No. 7) hosting Kentucky (No. 13), and Auburn (No. 11) hosting Arkansas (No. 21).

In the Big Ten, Minnesota (No. 16) hosts Maryland (No. 31) on Friday while Michigan (No. 8) travels to Penn State (No. 24), Nebraska (No. 17) travels to Ohio State (No. 22), Illinois (No. 38) travels to Iowa (No. 39) for what should be a super close battle on Saturday.

One of my favorite meets this weekend will be between two of the most underrated teams – and MRGC rivals – Boise State (No. 10) and BYU (No. 20). Both teams are capable of similar potential scores if they hit, and with the action happening in Provo, where the judges have been extra enthusiastic this season, I am so excited to watch this one.

And of course, we can’t forget the now sixth-ranked Denver – the highest in the program’s history! – which will compete at home this week, hosting Illinois State (No. 60). It’s going to be an easy win for the Pioneers, but Denver is now only about a tenth back from reaching the top five, and with the way they’ve been competing in recent weeks, if they continue pushing, this might just be the week they make it happen.

The full schedule for week seven 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!
