COLLEGE STATION, Texas — As we recapped here, the men’s NCAA championships came down to the 4×400.
With only the 4×400 remaining, the team standings were as follows:
36 Texas A&M
Oregon, with no 4×400 squad entered, was maxed out, but Texas A&M and Florida didn’t just have the top two seeds — they had the two fastest relay squads in NCAA history, the Aggies running a collegiate-record 3:02.39 at the SEC Championships, .34 ahead of the Gators.
Whichever of the two teams Florida or A&M finished ahead of the other would win the NCAA championships. Texas A&M had individual 400m champ Fred Kerley on the first leg and his brother Mylik on the anchor. We won’t say too much about it in case you haven’t seen it. Read about it here or just watch it below.
