The third-ranked Cowboys will lock horns with fellow Big 12 Conference rival and No. 4 Iowa State in the battle for the men’s title, with No. 10 Tulsa and No. 23 Minnesota being the other ranked programs set to the toes the starting line this week.
Oklahoma State and the Iowa State previously met at the Big 12 Championships two weeks ago, with hosts Cowboys coming away winners over the Cyclones who were second.
Meanwhile, on the women’s side, I am expecting to see another interesting contest for the women’s 6k Championship, with No. 5 Minnesota going head-to-head with No. 6 Oklahoma State. No. 13 Iowa State is also another team to pay close attention to as well.
When the three teams previously met at the 2021 Nuttycombe Invitational last month, Minnesota finished first among the trio with a fourth overall placing, while Oklahoma State was fifth and Iowa State ninth.
The top two teams in each of the races will automatically advance to the 2021 NCAA Cross Country National Championships, which is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 20 in Tallahassee, Florida.
Teams outside the top two finishers will be eligible for At-Large bids to the Championships, but will have to wait on the selection committee to announce the list during a special show on Saturday at 4 p.m. on live NCAA.com.
Once the At-Large bids are announced, the top-four individuals among the non-advancing teams will also secure spots to Nationals.
