2015 NCAA Outdoor Men's Mid-D/Steeple Preview: Cristian Soratos and Jordan Williamsz Lead A Wide-Open 1500; Anthony Rotich & Stanley Kebenei to Duel in Steeple; Will NCAA Champs Brandon McBride or Edward Kemboi Emerge In A Loaded Men's 800?

We're not sure if there will be drama in the 5 an 10ks but these races should more than make it up for it. The 800, where NCAA champs Brandon McBride and Edward Kemboi lead the way, is the deepest 800 in years at the NCAA level. Cristian Soratos vs. Jordan Williamsz is must-watch drama in the 1500 as is the Stanely Kebenei vs. Anthony Rotich battle in the steeple.
