The Big Storyline: Phewwwww that was a close call! After counting two falls on vault, with Gabby Wilson resting for the day, the Wolverines were in serious danger of dropping their first meet of the year. A few lower-than-usual numbers kept the total down as well. The Huskers absolutely did what they needed to try to capitalize on the mistakes, but also had a few vault issues that kept the upset out of reach.

Implications: Michigan opened the door for Florida or Oklahoma to take the No. 1 spot with this meet, but neither team managed a big enough total to get there, allowing the Wolverines to escape as the best team in the nation. Nebraska would have headed to the night session of Big Tens with a win here and ultimately just missed out. 

Records: Kinsey Davis’ 9.975 bars-winning number is a career high and the Huskers’ first look at a near-10 since Taylor Houchin.


Current Rankings: No. 1 Michigan at No. 27 Nebraska

Why You Should Clear Space on Your DVR: While the No. 1 Wolverines are the flashier team in this matchup, Nebraska is the story. The Huskers have been on an absolute tear in February. Improving week after week. Nebraska hadn’t hit 196 in January and haven’t been below 196.350 this month. There’s also an interesting element to this one: If by chance the Huskers get the upset (unlikely, but stay with us) and Minnesota wins its dual against Iowa, Nebraska will get the last night session spot at Big Tens.

You Can Fast Forward, but not Through This: Jacey Vore has emerged as a top beamer for the Wolverines. Of course, their entire vault lineup is important, too. Nebraska’s Kinsey Davis and Kathryn Thaler have been critical parts of the beam lineup in the February renaissance, as has Kaitlyn Higgins on floor. 

The event is finished.
