Big Ten Cross Country Championships Feature Lots of Ranked Teams

Minnesota, the Midwest Region No. 1 ranked team, is the highest-ranked Big Ten women’s team nationally and the Gophers will certainly be hoping to produce a strong performance against what is supposed to be a solid field at the conference championships.

No. 9 Michigan, No. 20 Michigan State, No. 22 Wisconsin, and No. 25 Illinois are expected to make the women’s race very interesting.

On the men’s side, No. 10 Wisconsin will start as the squad to beat with the Badgers ready to perform in the championship season after racing sparingly during the regular campaign.

Keep a close eye on No. 15 Michigan, which ran very well against a stacked Nuttycombe Wisconsin Invitational field earlier this month.

No. 29 Minnesota also ran well at Nuttycombe and should be in the mix for a podium place.

The University of Iowa, Indiana, Maryland, Nebraska, Northwestern, Ohio State, Penn State, and Rutgers will all send teams out to complete at the 2021 Big Ten Cross Country Championships.
