Rutgers at Nebraska
|Full Results||RU: 194.025||UNL: 193.750|
|VT: Joyner 9.850||UB: Davis 9.875||BB: Roby 9.950||FX: Huang 9.825||AA: Huang 39.150|
The Big Storyline: Phew this was a messy one. Both teams shone on beam, where scores were loose but the gymnastics was quite good, and everything else was in the room-for-improvement category. Nebraska vaulted a Yurchenko layout, both teams counted a major mistake on bars, and floor was…well, floor was in the 47s for both squads.
Implications: Nebraska remains on the struggle bus. Some things go brilliantly (Roby’s 9.950 on beam!) and then completely fall apart (two falls and a major start value issue when Roby balked on a tumbling pass on floor). The Huskers just don’t have the pieces right now and could find themselves in the regionals danger zone. Thankfully for them, both 193 totals have been home scores, and road meets have gone better. Rutgers struggled the first two meets out, and this number is a promising step forward. The Scarlet Knights will be glad to have this total in the away meet bag.
Records: This is Rutgers first ever win over Nebraska.
Controversies: The floor scores took an entire eternity to come in for both teams. These judges DID NOT care that the Super Bowl had begun. Not an ounce.
