Top 10 Preview

No. 1 Oklahoma State 

Idle

 

No. 2 Northern Arizona at Dave Murray Invitational 

Northern Arizona remains ranked No. 2 in the nation according to the USTFCCCA. After a dominating performance at the George Kyte Classic against a field that featured the likes of No. 28 Arizona State, NAU was able to remain at the top behind defending national champion Oklahoma State.

The Lumberjacks will compete this coming Saturday at the Dave Murray Invitational hosted by Arizona in Tucson, Ariz. At the same meet in 2012, Arizona took the team title. 

No. 3 Colorado 

Idle

 

No. 4 BYU

No. 5 Arkansas at Southern Stampede

In their season opener two weeks ago, the Razorbacks picked up two dual meet wins against Missouri Southern State and Missouri. 

On Saturday Arkansas will travel to Missouri Southern State's Southern Stampede. The main competition will be No. 6 Tulsa. The two teams were tied until the polls this week and Arkansas came out ahead. 

Having not competed since two weekends ago and with its next meet not scheduled until the first weekend of October, Arkansas is somewhat more likely to suit up and push its full "A" squad than Tulsa. 

No. 6 Tulsa at Southern Stampede

The Golden Hurricane was tied with Arkansas in the preseason poll, and now sits just one vote behind the Razorbacks in the poll.

Tulsa will run its second meet of the season at the Missouri Southern Stampede on Saturday in Joplin, Mo. Tulsa previously raced at the Hurricane Cross Country Festival on Aug. 31. At the festival, The Hurricane dropped their duel competitions, falling to Oklahoma State (50-15), Oklahoma (46-15) and Louisiana-Monroe (33-22).

At the Southern Stampede Tulsa looks to redeem that loss and compete directly with No. 5 Arkansas. 

No. 7 Portland at Salem Invitational 

In last week's competition, No. 7 Portland fell to second place behind to host BYU at the Autumn Classic. 

On Saturday, the Pilots will travel to Salem, Ore., for the Salem Invitational. Portland moved up in the national poll this week and will look to prove themselves.

No. 8 Syracuse

Idle

 

No. 9 Princeton

No. 10 Wisconsin
