Looking Ahead: Top Meets of the NCAA DI Regular Season

Looking Ahead: Top Meets of the NCAA DI Regular Season

NEW ORLEANS – Welcome back, cross country! We missed you!

In fact, we’re so excited for the upcoming NCAA Division I Cross Country season that we couldn’t help but chart out all the top regular-season meets around the country – all the way through the two-day bonanza that is Wisconsin/Pre-Nats weekend.

With the first day of countable meets for NCAA Championships at-large qualifying consideration moved up this year a couple weeks to September 9, that opened the door for a few more significant mid-September meets.

Listed below in chronological order are the biggest regular-season meets of the 2016 campaign. This includes all meets around the nation prior to conference championships that feature three or more teams that were ranked top-30 in this week’s preseason National Coaches’ Polls.

Mark your calendars, because you won’t want to miss these meets. You’ll be able to follow most of them on the USTFCCCA National Results Wall (stay tuned for more details).

NOTE: Several teams have multiple meets scheduled for the same weekend. It is unknown at this point which meet they will opt for/how they will split runners.
