NAU (42) Men Edge BYU (50) and Oklahoma State (51) in Biggest NCAA XC Meet Of The Year

October 17, 2020

Thanks to COVID-19, the biggest men’s NCAA cross country meet of the year was today at Oklahoma State’s OSU Invitational in Stillwater as the top three teams from last year’s NCAAs — BYU, NAU and Colorado — all battled along with host Oklahoma State. In the end, officially, NAU, led by individual champ Luis Grijalva, edged Oklahoma State 36 to 42 and BYU was third in 59 and Colorado not recording a score. However, the reason why Colorado doesn’t show up in the scores is the Pac-12 isn’t officially allowed to compete yet so all of the Colorado runners ran unattached.

So we decided to add in all of the unattached runners for their schools and re-score the meet according to people we know will have XC eligibility in 2021. Here is what we got.
