National Rankings

MINNEAPOLIS – After the Gophers' win over Illinois and Nebraska over the weekend, they have moved up another spot in the GymInfo national rankings to No. 6 with an average score of 429.217.

The top five teams ahead of the Gophers are No. 1 Oklahoma (442.717), No. 2 Michigan (438.367), No. 3 Ohio State (434.100), No. 4 Illinois (432.400) and No. 5 Stanford (432.067).

The rankings experienced a slight shake-up this week, as the rankings now reflect a three-meet average rather than a team’s season average. The same goes for individual awards, meaning a gymnast must have competed in an event three times to qualify for the rankings.

Below are how the Gophers stack up against the national leaders in each event as a team and as individuals in the national rankings for the week of Feb. 3.
