College Swimming Weekly Preview: Oct. 7 – Oct. 13, 2019

In a battle of ranked teams, the #17/#19 Minnesota Golden Gophers will host the visiting #16/#9 Florida Gators.

We’ve also got the always-entertaining SMU Classic format meet, plus a triangular between Kentucky, Notre Dame and Indiana.

Teams from our preseason Power Rankings (women/men) in action this week:

  • Kentucky (#9w) hosts Notre Dame (an honorable mention for men and women) and Indiana (#12w/#8m) on Wednesday night
  • Minnesota (#19w/#17m) take on the Florida Gators (#16w/#9m) in Minneapolis on Friday.
  • Tennessee (#6w, honorable mention men) travel to South Carolina to take on the Gamecocks Friday.
  • Saturday, Duke (#20w) heads to Florida State for a tri meet with FSU and Virginia Tech (honorable mention for men).
  • In women’s-only competition, #10 USC hosts Utah and #1 Stanford takes on Arkansas.
  • We’ve also got the SMU Classic on the women’s side – usually a very-fast early season meet. This year, it will feature #11 Auburn and #13 Louisville, along with SMU, Miami, Iowa and Northwestern.
