Southern Utah & Denver @ BYU Live Blog

Moving from the SEC to the American west in a Tri-meet at Brigham Young University with Denver and Southern Utah.

BYU is in a good position this year, being solidly in the top 20 of the rankings and at this point, they're going to be shooting for a seeded position at regionals. Denver went up in the rankings this week, but their place depends on this road score, so it needs to be a good one tonight. I haven't seen much of Southern Utah this season, so not sure what to expect from them tonight. But this should be a really exciting meet.

Follow along and refresh the page for updates!

So it looks like BYU is starting on vault, Denver starts on floor, Southern Utah starts on bars

They're each going one at a time tonight. So I'll be able to recount the action for you.

Abbey Miner VT BYU - FTY, good distance, not a lot of height and big hop on landing. 9.75

More Pac-12 this afternoon with UCLA at Cal.
