Oregon has been projected to win the men’s title at the 2021 NCAA DI Indoor Track and Field Championships, according to the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) National Rating Index, following the list of the official entries. The 2021 NCAA DI Indoor Track and Field Championships will take place at the Randal Tyson Track Center in Fayetteville, Arkansas, from Thursday, March 11 through Saturday, March 13.

The USTFCCCA’s pre-championship ratings are predicting that Oregon will win the men’s indoor team title this season, which would be the fifth team crown for the Ducks in the program history. A victory this weekend would be the first team national indoor championships for the Oregon men since they won three straight from 2014 to 2016.

If Oregon is to go on and secure the national title, though, the likes of Micah Williams (60m), Cole Hocker (mile), Charlie Hunter (800m), and Cooper Teare (3000m) who all enter the championships as national leaders in their respective events, will more than likely play a big part in the scoring department.
