The Minnesota men's gymnastics team remain ranked No. 7 in the latest Gyminfo National Rankings released on Monday. The Gophers are coming off a convincing road win at Nebraska where they tallied 430.300 points to beat the Huskers and Iowa.

The Gophers are ranked behind No. 1 Penn State, Oklahoma, Michigan, Stanford, Ohio State and Illinois.

Minnesota will celebrate senior day this Saturday when it hosts No. 1 Penn State. The meet will also be the last one of the regular season for the Gophers before they host the Big Ten tournament on April 5-6. 

The Gophers also placed eight gymnasts in the top 20 in individual event rankings. Steve Jaciuk leads the way, as he is ranked third in the high bar and jumped from ninth to fifth in parallel bars. Ellis Mannon is ranked third in the pommel horse, while Adam Kern is the final Gopher ranked in the top 10 as he is slotted at ninth on vault.
