Boise State at BYU
|Full Results||BYU: 195.475||Boise State: 195.300|
|VT: Lopez, 9.850||UB: Alvarado, 9.925||BB: Lopez, 9.925||FX: Ripley, 9.925||AA: Loyim, 37.750|
The Big Storyline: Despite some beam troubles, BYU was able to edge out Boise State thanks to strong performances on bars and floor.
Implications: This meet delivered in terms of being a close competition and suggests that conference competition in the MRGC will be tight throughout the season. However, both of these teams still had somewhat rough meets. Vault was a low score for both teams, and BYU struggled on beam while Boise State had some endurance issues on floor. While these issues can be resolved as the season progresses, these teams do look a little behind conference foe Southern Utah, who scored over a point higher than both teams on Friday.
Current Rankings: No. 36 Boise State at No. 42 BYU
Why You Should Make Time to Tune in: The MRGC is always a competitive conference, and this matchup is no exception. Last week, BYU and Boise State scored within one tenth of each other, and both teams have lots of room to grow. Each counted falls last week and will be looking to bounce back against a conference foe.
Need More Proof? Despite counting a fall on bars, Boise State also recorded two scores of 9.900-plus, and Emily Lopez’s stunning set is worthy of your attention. Vault will also be exciting with three relatively new upgrades being competed. For BYU, Allix Mason debuted a Yurchenko one and a half last weekend, and Rebekah Bean Ripley competed a front handspring pike half after being out of competition with injury for the last three years. For the Broncos, Adriana Popp debuted a front handspring pike half of her own last week. The execution of these upgraded vaults could be the difference maker in this meet.
