#NCAAMGym Week 11 Recap

Believe it or not, we now have just one more weekend full of non-postseason gymnastics. That slate will be kicked off with the USAG Nationals on March 29-30 (though there will still be a couple of regular season meets with UIC @ Michigan and California @ Stanford).

What that means is a B1G regular season champion will be crowned this coming weekend! We’ll get more into the shifts in those standings as we break down each meet from last weekend. First, the One Thing We Learned

Oklahoma’s Historic Run

Okay, so we didn’t necessarily learn about this over the weekend, we were merely reminded of it. The Sooners’ victory over Navy cemented the program’s place in not just the NCAA men’s gymnastics history books, but the entire collegiate sports landscape’s history books.

I don’t care if you have 4 teams in your sport or 400. Winning 111 straight meets/games/matches is outstanding and not something that happens coincidentally. I’m confident in saying that we haven’t seen the end of Oklahoma’s streak, though regardless of when it ends, a gigantic hats off to every single gymnast and coach that has been a part of it.

Oklahoma @ Navy

Oklahoma topped Navy 416.7-400.6 in Annapolis last Saturday to secure their 111th-straight victory.

OU stood out on floor, vault and high bar but had struggles on horse, the only event they forfeited to Navy. Earning titles for the Sooners were Gage Dyer (MPSF Gymnast of the Week) on floor and high bar, Yul Moldauer on horse, rings and p-bars, as well as Matt Wenske/Vitaliy Guimaraes on vault.

Navy getting back above the 400 mark was a win in itself — they haven’t crossed that threshold since Feb. 9 (they hit 400 flat on March 1). It shows that the Midshipmen are finally starting to hit their stride in the five-up, five-count portion of the season.

Highlights for Navy included outscoring OU on horse with Jake Carlson and Ryan Orce on the podium, Lucas Beltran’s solid floor showing, and Max Gerber and Cash Buske just missing the podium.

Illinois/Michigan @ Penn State

A meet with tremendous implications resulted in Michigan solidifying themselves as the favorites to win the Big Ten regular season title.

The Wolverines trailed both Penn State and Illinois through five events until a monster vault rotation (71.90) launched them to the top of the leaderboard. Kevin Penev (14.50), Marty Strech (14.40) and Jacob Moore (14.250) all stuck their vaults. Meanwhile, Anthony McCallum capped off the rotation with his signature tsuk double pike (14.85) to earn him the event title, and Michigan the win.

Cameron Bock also had a bounce back day after he struggled last week against Iowa. Bock took home both the p-bars (13.70) and high bar (14.50) titles. It is clear that Michigan is a different animal when the sophomore is in form.

This win is a big deal as Michigan now moves to 4-1 in the Big Ten and is joined by Iowa as the only one-loss teams. Iowa will face both Penn State and Minnesota this coming week and Michigan will head to Nebraska.  If both teams are undefeated in their final weekend, they will each take a share of the title.

Head Coach Kurt Golder believes that his team can finish what they started. “We just have to go out to Nebraska and get the job done. Of course, the last two NCAA Championships they have beaten us, we just gotta be sharp when we go out there.”

Penn State came up just over a point and a half short of Michigan. Although the Nittany Lions are likely disappointed with the outcome, they proved they can hang with the top teams in the Big Ten.  They counted just three falls in the competition, compared to Michigan’s two, and won three events on the day (PH, SR, HB). 

Penn State did their usual thing on pommel horse (66.60) and we finally got a head-to-head battle between Michael Paradise and Stephen Nedoroscik. Both of them did arguably their best sets of the season but Paradise (14.70) came up just short of Nedoroscik (14.85).

We already knew what Penn State can do on pommel horse and rings, but they showed signs of life on some other events. Sam Zakutney (14.65) and Brennan Pantazis (14.60) placed second and third on vault, an event PSU has been very weak on the past few years. Senior Michael Burns had his best competition of the year, including a second place finish on high bar (14.15) to give Penn State their highest team total on that event.

The day did not go as planned for a very good Illini team, but there were still some highlights. Alex Diab seems completely untouchable on rings where he grabbed another title with a 14.75 performance. Michael Fletcher continued his tour as one of the best freshman in the country while tallying a second place finish on p-bars (13.45).

The final title on the day for Illinois was won by Clay Stephens with his 14.7 floor set. Unfortunately, Stephens suffered an apparent knee injury later in the day on vault. This is something we never want to see happen to anybody, let alone someone of his stature and character. Stephens was voted a team captain after spending just one semester with the team.  Illinois will fight on and hope for a speedy recovery for their talented leader. — Ben Cooperman

Air Force @ Minnesota

Minnesota breezed past the Air Force Falcons 402.05-387.35 during a dual meet in Minneapolis on Sunday.

Coming off a big victory over Ohio State, the Gophers had a somewhat unbalanced day, with mistakes in strange spots and big highlights in others. That’s partly due to the fact that they rested some of their top guys, such as Shane Wiskus and Shaun Herzog, and gave others a crack at a lineup spot.

Air Force was keeping pace with Minnesota at the halfway point after their solid vault rotation and a measly rings performance from the Gophers. The Falcons also scored a 66.4 on rings while Minnesota put up just a 63.15, a season-low. But Minnesota’s vault juiced them back up, in large part due to freshman Garrett Kasiski’s (NCAA/B1G Rookie of the Week) stuck handspring double-front — the Gophers took over from there.

After that, the Falcons had real struggles, scoring just a 62.7 on high bar and a 60.4 on p-bars, a season-low. Highlights for Air Force included a horse and rings title for Ethan Esval and solid performances from Frankie Valentin, Lukas Texeira and Christian Kalustian.

Minnesota had team titles on every event except rings. Earning titles for Minnesota were Eric Nakamura on floor, Vitali Kan on pommels, Kasiski on vault, and Shane Wiskus on p-bars and high bar. Wiskus (NCAA/B1G Gymnast of the Week) had quite a day despite resting on a couple events, posting a 14.9 on p-bars and a 14.4 on high bar — both were season-highs for the sophomore.

The Gophers will be back to full strength next weekend when they face Penn State and Iowa at home. While the odds are long, each team will in fact be fighting for a Big Ten regular season championship.

The Falcons are home against Washington on Saturday. They’re fighting for a spot at the NCAA Championships. — Alex Wittenberg

Ohio State @ Iowa

Stay hot, Hawkeyes. On Saturday afternoon in Iowa City, the Hawkeyes enjoyed a celebration of their seniors while simultaneously taking down yet another B1G opponent in Ohio State.

With the win, Iowa has now put themselves in a position of potentially winning the B1G regular season crown if they can defeat Penn State and Minnesota this weekend and also have Michigan lose to Nebraska.

Regardless of whether that happens, Iowa has been the biggest surprise of 2019. Now — on to what happened this weekend.

Full disclosure, this wasn’t the Hawkeyes’ best performance. They endured a drop off in scoring on five of six events from the week prior while being thoroughly outdone by the Buckeyes on PH and VT. Then again, a win is a win is a win.

The highlight performance from this one came from Nick Merryman. The junior snagged a pair of event titles on PB (tied with teammate Jake Brodarzon) and HB — capitalizing on a pair of events that Ohio State severely struggled on. Merryman keeps things fairly simple, difficulty-wise, but there aren’t many gymnasts across the NCAA who are more enjoyable to watch given the cleanliness of his gymnastics.

Bennet Huang and Evan Davis also both stepped up with rock-solid days, contributing great scores on four events each.

I was quite impressed with Ohio State through four events. They limited mistakes on PH and absolutely crushed VT, claiming four of the top-five spots on the event. That rotation, specifically, was highlighted by three stuck landings coming from Joey Bonnano, Alec Yoder and Dexter Roettker.

Unfortunately, PB and HB happened. The Buckeyes bottomed out with season-low team scores on both — including a 59.95 on high bar. Certainly Yoder’s presence on the latter event would help, but even with him, there’s no team in the NCAA that can tread water while having to deal with counting a pair of 10’s anywhere in their team score.

Ohio State’s event winners were Jesse Tyndall on FX, Yoder on PH, Max Andryuschenko on SR as well as Yoder and Bonnano on VT. — Logan Bradley

Army, Springfield and Temple @ William & Mary

In what turned out being a two-team battle, Army was able to hang on to take down their host, William & Mary, by just over two points.

I think we now know that Army is just about a mid-390 team with the potential to hit 400 with a great day. All-arounders Matt Davis (79.75) and Cole Casanova (79.15) snagged the 1-2 spots for the day. Davis was able to win FX while Casanova took home a win on PB.

One Black Knight gymnast of note from the day was Erik Del Cid. The junior grabbed a pair of top-two finishes on FX and VT, including an event title on the latter event.

Army will now focus their attention on USAG Nationals and ECAC Championships, a pair of postseason meets that they should find themselves in heavy contention for.

Despite being winners of three events (FX, VT, HB), William & Mary fell short of taking down their ECAC rival. Their horse team also came to play as the Tribe locked up the top-three spots there with Spencer Schrandt finding himself in the top spot.

David Watkins continued his fantastic 2019 season with another title on SR — this one of the 13.75 variety. Now ranked no. 8 in the NCAA — Watkins will qualify with ease to NCAA’s and should have a shot at becoming an All-American. Also winning a title was David Allen on HB.

Springfield boasted a trio of top-three finishes this weekend. Those came from Stephen Lewis (AA- 3rd), Jannik Haas (PB – 3rd) and Noah Candocia (VT – 2nd).

The Temple Owls wrapped things up with a pair of top-ten event finishes themselves with Evan Salters on PB and Taden Thurber on HB. — Logan Bradley

#NCAAMGym Week 9 Power Rankings

Every week we’ll release a “Power Rankings,” aiming to provide a fluid picture of how each team across the NCAA is doing at the moment. The idea is to try not to focus too much on scores and look more at the current state of the team. The (+) or (-) next to each team’s name relates to how far they rose or fell from last week’s rankings.

This year’s power rankings are an average based off of the individual rankings of five individuals:

  • Logan Bradley (former Illinois gymnast)
  • Ben Cooperman (former Penn State gymnast)
  • Alex Wittenberg (former Minnesota gymnast)
  • Andrew Misiolek (former Stanford gymnast)
  • Jessica Frankl (CGA gymnastics expert/photographer)

To see a list of each individual’s rankings, scroll all the way to the bottom of this page.

1. Oklahoma Sooners (-)

Yul Moldauer was out in Greensboro making history while his team was at home with the weekend off. The Sooners are back home this Saturday against Illinois, who’s coming off of a huge win over Stanford and Minnesota. —Alex Wittenberg

2. Stanford Cardinal (-)

The pressure was on Stanford to perform at Illinois in their first competition of the season outside of the West Coast. It was not the result they were looking for, but coming within two points of a talented Illinois team is impressive. The Cardinal proved they are a legitimate 410+ team regardless of location. — Ben Cooperman

3. Michigan Wolverines (-)

Michigan did not compete this weekend and will need to be on their game at home against Iowa to remain ahead of a surging Illini team. — Logan Bradley

4. Illinois Fighting Illini (-)

In upsetting Stanford and beating Big Ten rival Minnesota, the Fighting Illini last Saturday showed they can take on the best of the best this season. But can they do the unthinkable and beat OU in Norman this Saturday? It isn’t likely, but even getting close would bode well for their chances against Michigan, the Illini’s biggest Big Ten rival at the moment, who put up a poor challenge to OU in Norman a few weeks ago. — Alex Wittenberg

5. Penn State Nittany Lions (+1)

Yet another up and down meet for Penn State resulted in their first Big Ten loss of the season. This defeat sets the stage for an enticing competition March 16th when Illinois and Michigan come to State College, Pennsylvania to wrap up the season. Led by Sam Zakutney, who put up another monster all-around performance this past weekend, Penn State still has a shot at the regular season trophy if they can find a way to beat the Wolverines and Fighting Illini. — Ben Cooperman

6. Minnesota Golden Gophers (-1)

We’re over halfway through the season and I still don’t have a good feel for this Minnesota team. It’s a talented bunch, no doubt. One that has B1G-winning potential. We just might learn a little bit more as the Gophers travel to the proverbial Wild Wild West of judging, Columbus, this weekend. — Logan Bradley

7. Nebraska Cornhuskers (-)

After big wins over Illinois and Minnesota, Nebraska’s momentum sputtered out against the Iowa Hawkeyes. The Huskers fell to Iowa 406.7-403.55 last Saturday. There were still highlights, though — freshman Charlie Giles, Anton Stephenson and Jake Bonnay each had a good showing. Now coming off of a loss, Nebraska faces a challenge this Friday in Columbus against Minnesota and Ohio State. Minnesota is reeling from a disappointing showing of their own, and Ohio is riding a high after having their best meet of the season by over 10 points. Every routine will matter on Friday. — Alex Wittenberg

8. Ohio State Buckeyes (+1)

The Buckeyes coming in this far down the list after becoming just the fifth team to go 413+ this season may seem puzzling. Even more shocking than that, Ohio State shattered their previous season high by over 10 points. While this team is looking more refined than earlier in the season, the misleading score they put up this past weekend was courtesy of some inexplicably lenient judging. — Ben Cooperman

9. Iowa Hawkeyes (-1)

A B1G upset and Iowa drops in the power rankings? What a cruel world. Truthfully, there is a good case to be made for Iowa leapfrogging Ohio State in these rankings, and as you can see by the the voting (see bottom of page), they’re awfully close. In reality, there’s an argument to be made that the Hawkeyes should be as high as No. 6. Very excited to see what they can do the rest of the way. — Logan Bradley

10. California Golden Bears (-)

Cal didn’t compete last weekend. The Golden Bears are up against Washington on Sunday. —Alex Wittenberg

11. Navy Midshipmen (-)

It was a busy weekend for the Mids as they traveled to both William & Mary and Springfield. The first competition went well as they broke back above the 400 mark. The second meet was a different story as they posted their worst team score of the season. Navy will look to bounce back to their winning ways as they head out to warm weather Arizona this weekend. — Ben Cooperman

12. Army Black Knights (-)

Colorado was unkind to the Black Knights last weekend, but despite that, Army still remains ahead of the Falcons in this week’s power rankings. We know full-well what Cole Casanova and Matthew Davis can do…what about the rest of the team? If those two can get some support, Army will easily find themselves competing as a team at NCAA’s. — Logan Bradley

13. Air Force Falcons (-)

Air Force had a big upset over Army last Saturday, taking down the Black Knights 394.25-389.95. They get to go against another military rival this Saturday, when they’re set to face Navy, Nor Cal United, Penn State and Arizona State in Tempe. — Alex Wittenberg

14. William & Mary Tribe (+1)

The Tribe has been on a stellar run resulting in a jump over a talented Sun Devil team. William & Mary will head to the Windy City this weekend as they look to continue their 390+ streak. — Ben Cooperman

15. Arizona State Sun Devils (-1)

Arizona State was off last weekend but will pick things back up on Saturday with a big home meet against Penn State, Navy, Air Force and NorCal United. — Logan Bradley

16. Springfield Pride (-)

Springfield suffered a tough-fought loss to Navy on Sunday. Highlights for the No. 16 team included Stephen Lewis’s all-around performance and the team’s showing on rings and p-bars. Springfield will face Army in West Point on Saturday. — Alex Wittenberg

17. Washington Huskies (-)

Washington did not compete last weekend and will be facing Cal in their second and final home competition of the year this Sunday. — Ben Cooperman

18. UIC Flames (-)

UIC didn’t compete last weekend but will welcome ECAC rival, William & Mary, to Chicago on Sunday. — Logan Bradley

#NCAAMGym Week 9 Recap

This past weekend might’ve been the most intriguing set of meets that we’ve seen all season. FOUR of the six competitions featured upset winners, including the unquestioned No. 2 team in the country, Stanford, going down.

Before we get to everything that happened, we need to first give a shout out to the now back-to-back-to-back American Cup champion, Yul Moldauer.

The Sooner narrowly (and I mean narrowly: 85.932 to 85.931) edged out former Michigan Wolverine, Sam Mikulak. Undoubtedly, the Oklahoma senior has his sights set on Tokyo and this win was just one step closer to achieving that goal.

Now, to our One Thing We Learned…

Don’t Forget About Illinois

The Fighting Illini made the biggest wave this weekend, taking down not just No. 2 Stanford, but No. 5 Minnesota as well. Not only does this beg the question of who is the second-best team in the NCAA, it sets the stage for quite the regular season meet in two weeks.

The Illini will travel to Happy Valley for a battle with Penn State and a strong Michigan team. With Illinois seemingly settling into a groove here just past the halfway point, it will be interesting to see whether the Wolverines (or Nittany Lions) have the goods to step up and take down the now B1G favorites.

It looks like our first season of crowning a B1G regular season champion will be an interesting one.

Penn State @ Ohio State

Whatever Ohio State did during their month-long respite from competition worked miraculously well — the Buckeyes came charging back from a calamitous start to their season to top their season-high by 10 points and upset rival Penn State 413.15-409.0.

The Buckeyes were consistent throughout, scoring above 68 on every event besides rings (where they weren’t far from 68).

Penn State was mostly solid but forfeited their typical advantage on pommel horse, scoring just a 64.85. That was just a tenth and a half from a season-low for the Nittany Lions, and a lot of it had to do with Stephen Nedoroscik’s 13.05, which was about two points less than his usual. Had PSU hit their three-score average of 68.15, they would have been less than a point back from the Buckeyes.

Ohio State, however, looked determined from the beginning to make a statement, to insert themselves back into a dialogue from which they’ve been notably absent. They hit season-highs on floor, horse, rings, p-bars and high bar. That’s quite a way to bounce back.

That said, many a skeptic would scratch their head at such a rebound. Can a team transform themselves so much in a single month? High bar’s season-high, for example, was over three and a half points greater than their next-best score. So is 67.75 a fair portrayal of OSU’s high bar potential?

It could be. Dexter Roettker turned an 11.45 into a 13.45, Max Andryuhschenko an 11.85 into 14.05. There’s the difference. And while your writer could opine on the judging, better to just refer you, reader, to last week’s statement on that matter — because it isn’t just Ohio.

Earning titles for the Buckeyes were Alec Yoder on horse, Andryuhschenko on rings, Alex Wilson on vault and Jesse Tyndall on p-bars.

Penn State’s Sam Zakutney earned titles on floor and high bar. He also put up a solid all-around performance, scoring an 83 flat.

Ohio State is home against Minnesota this weekend in a crucial meet for both teams. Ohio will look to solidify their comeback, and Minnesota will aim to bounce back from a disappointing showing against Illinois.

Penn State is up against Air Force, Arizona State, Navy and Nor Cal United in Tempe on Saturday. — Alex Wittenberg

Stanford/Minnesota @ Illinois

Everybody had a good feeling that this would be the meet of the weekend, and it didn’t disappoint one bit. Competing in front of a home crowd in Champaign, Illinois was able to complete the upset, defeating both No. 2 Stanford and No. 5 Minnesota.

It surely was an impressive afternoon for the Illini who kept consistent pressure on both of their opponents right from the start. All-in-all, Illinois was forced to count just two scores below a 12.75.

The headline performance came from newly-minted Nissen Emery Award finalist, Alex Diab (B1G Gymnast of the Week). The senior snagged two event titles (FX and SR) along with a runner-up finish on VT. He made a little bit of history as well, setting the new Illinois record on rings with this 15.2.

Another notable gymnast was freshman Hamish Carter. Although he competed on just two events, he made the two count with a 14.1 on FX and a 14.2 on HB. The British Senior National Team member just might be the difference between Illinois being a good team or a great team.

Other event titles for Illinois came from Michael Paradise who continues his tear on PH and freshman Clay Stephens on PB.

Second isn’t where the Cardinal wanted to finish on Saturday, but they really should be commended for competing tough after a disastrous start to the meet on PH. Despite three falls, the Cardinal was able to pull things together and still come within a point-and-a-half of defeating Illinois.

It was PB and HB in particular where Stanford brought the fire, registering six top-five finishes between the two events. Ryan Sheppard took home the PB crown while freshman Brody Malone showed out on HB. Although Malone didn’t compete all-around this weekend, you’d be hard-pressed to find an all-arounder outside of Yul Moldauer that I’d rather have on my team at the moment.

It wasn’t the day that Minnesota envisioned on Saturday. Despite the third place team finish, Shane Wiskus continued to show that he’s one of the nation’s top all-arounders by posting an 83.75 and doing everything he could to propel his team forward.

Unfortunately, lackluster performances on HB and the traditionally stellar event, VT, was what ultimately did the Gophers in. There will be no time to dwell on this one, though, as Minnesota travels to Columbus for a huge conference tri-meet with Ohio State and Nebraska. A great opportunity to bounce back. — Logan Bradley

Nebraska @ Iowa

After weeks of being considered one of the weakest teams in the Big Ten, Iowa shocked everyone, upsetting Nebraska at home.

Nebraska came into this meet on a hot streak, recently beating both Illinois and Minnesota at home. Few believed the Hawkeyes had what it took to grab a highly-coveted conference win. This statement victory from Iowa proves the parity amongst Big Ten teams is unlike anything we’ve seen in quite some time.

Iowa cruised through this meet earning season high totals on their first five events before cooling off on high bar. This team was knocking out sets, getting significant contributions from the entire roster. Bennet Huang (14.60) and Andrew Herrador (14.20) lit the fire on floor where they both scored 14+ to take second and third, respectively, on the event.

The Hawkeyes have struggled this season on pommel horse but were able to turn that narrative around. All five of their scores were above the 13 mark and Kevin Johnson showed what he can do, posting a 14.00 to take the event title.

While typically a good high bar team, Iowa ran out of gas by the time they got there. Their 63.50 was well off their season high of 66.70. This could tell us that Iowa’s ceiling is even higher than the 406.70 they scored on Saturday.

The Cornhuskers found themselves suffering their second Big Ten defeat on the road this year. Definitely a setback for this team, but the meet was far from a disaster. Their 403.55 was still eight points higher than their season low. 

Pommel horse is what really hurt Nebraska as they had three scores in the 12’s to put up a 64.50. This is unfortunate considering they finally turned things around on rings where they scored a season high 67.650.

Highlights for the Cornhuskers include a 14.70 from Charlie Giles (B1G Freshman of the Week) to take the vault title, a tremendous feat when you are on the same team as Anton Stephenson. Stephenson earned a title of his own on floor (14.70). Jake Bonnay rounded out the event champions with his 13.85 high bar routine. — Ben Cooperman

Navy @ William & Mary

The Mids started their two-meet weekend with a trip to Virginia where they took down the Tribe.

Navy was lighting up the scoreboard earlier this season but the fireworks came to an abrupt halt when they struggled a week ago at Penn State. A solid competition got the Midshipmen back over the 400 mark ever so slightly this past Friday.

The main takeaway from this competition is that Navy is a great high bar team. Ben Provost (13.85), Cash Buske (13.85) and Ryan McVay (13.60) took the top three spots en route to a team total of 66.70 on the event. Navy is now ranked No. 4 in the country on high bar. 

William & Mary put up their third straight score of 390+ as they settled in back home. Cutter Fugett won the floor exercise with a 14.20 and Andrew Lyubovsky (ECAC Rookie of the Week) won the p-bars title with a 13.65. The Tribe have been good as of late and will look to creep closer to the 400 mark. — Ben Cooperman

Army @ Air Force

Take on a service academy on the road and you’d best come prepared. It seems like any time that Navy/Army/Air Force compete at home, there’s a 99% win percentage. While that’s an exaggeration, Air Force continued the trend by upsetting the Black Knights in Colorado.

The elder statesman of the group, Lukas Texeira, led the way for the Falcons with a trio of top-five finishes, including runner-up on SR and an event title on HB. That was enough to make the senior the MPSF Gymnast of the Week.

Air Force really got the job done on pipe compared to their competitive counterpart. Their 4.5 point advantage on that event proved to be the difference in this one.

Other Falcon winners were Scott McMurray on PH, Frankie Valentin on SR and Allen Shadan on PB.

Save for a season-low on HB, it was a fairly ho-hum day. In classic fashion, freshman Matthew Davis (79.95) and Cole Casanova (78.95) went 1-2 in the all-around with Davis tacking on FX and VT titles as well.

There was plenty left to be desired past the two Black Knight stars, but they provide a nice floor for an Army team that, despite the loss, remains improved from last year’s squad. — Logan Bradley

Navy @ Springfield

A double-header weekend proved too much for Navy to handle — after scoring 400 flat on Friday, Navy fell more than 10 points two days later.

They still managed to get a win, beating Springfield 387.9-383.05. They also claimed individual titles on every event.

Earning titles for Navy were Lucas Beltran on floor, David Toussaint on horse, Christian Correale on rings, Beltran on vault, Max Gerber on p-bars and Ben Provost on high bar.

Although Springfield didn’t have any individual titles, they did beat Navy as a team on rings and p-bars. Stephen Lewis (ECAC Gymnast of the Week) also had another solid day, scoring a 79.25 in the all-around.

Navy goes against Air Force, Arizona State, Nor Cal United and Penn State on Saturday in Tempe. Springfield will face Army in West Point on Saturday. — Alex Wittenberg
