Top programs in the SEC and Pac-12 will battle it out for conference supremacy this week, the last true busy weekend of duals before the postseason begins.

Here are a few of the top meets to watch:

  • In the SEC, the #4/#17 Tennessee Volunteers host the #12/#8 Florida Gators in a preview of next month’s SEC Championships.
  • Meanwhile in the Pac-12, the #7 USC Trojan women will host the #1 Cal Bears and then #2 Stanford Cardinal on consecutive days Friday and Saturday.
  • In the Big Ten, the Purdue Boilermakers host a triangular with the Minnesota Gophers and Northwestern Wildcats.
  • And the Ivy League has its premier regular-season meet: the Harvard Crimson, Yale Bulldogs, and Princeton Tigers clash at the annual HYP meet at Princeton Friday and Saturday.
  • There are a couple of cross-conference matchups to watch as well: #14/#5 Indiana heads to #15/#10 Louisville for a battle with the Cardinals. And #19/#13 Arizona State will host #8/#1 Texas.
