College Swimming Weekend Preview: 10/30/17-11/5/17

College swimming really heats up this weekend, with a number of key conference and in-state rivalries.

Maybe most notable is Texas vs Texas A&M, a rematch of the former Big 12 conference foes. That could be quite a meet on the women’s side, with both teams finishing in the NCAA’s top 5 a year ago. In another battle for state supremacy, Florida State will challenge Florida.

In the Pac-12, we’ll see Arizona State get USC, and Pac-12 powerhouse Stanford will put its historically good women’s program up against rising ACC power NC State. The Wolfpack women will face Cal the next day.

In the Big Ten, Minnesota meets Michigan in a battle of conference champ hopefuls on the women’s side. Penn State and Wisconsin will also be in the mix in a four-team showdown of strong Big Ten schools.

Below is a list of the D1 meets we’ll be covering at SwimSwam this week. If we missed any, please leave them in the comments and we’ll get them added.

Boston University is actually traveling to UMass Amherst instead of Dartmouth on the 4th

Excellent – thanks for the list of meets. Will you be doing a preview for next week? We have a junior looking to attend a meet in KY-IN-OH-MI-TN area to see what it is like. Went to the UC-USC meet on 10/21 at Cincinnati – it was a good one.

Louisville vs TN should be good it’s in Louisville.

This schedule doesn’t mention Cal men racing Stanford this weekend? Isn’t that usually their last meet of the season?

swimmy – I don’t think that meet is this week. February 11th.

I think the Cal-Stanford Meet is actually next weekend, on 11/10. And if I recall this is more of a fun Sprint-Distance-IM meet where they break the teams up into different groups and they do different groups of races based on a swimmer’s specialties. The Big Swim usually happens right before the Pac 12 Championships Meet.
