The biggest day of NCAA cross country’s 2021 regular season will come on Friday, October 15, with the FSU Invite/Pre-Nationals at Florida State in the morning and the Nuttycombe Wisconsin Invitational at Wisconsin in the afternoon. In all, 57 of the top 61 teams in the country will be racing at one of the two meets.

On the men’s side, the biggest showdown will come in Tallahassee as #1 NAU is set to take on #2 Notre Dame and #5 BYU — though it’s possible that Notre Dame, who raced only one of their prospective top seven at their home invitational two weeks ago, doesn’t run a full-strength squad.
