NEW ORLEANS — The stage is set for Eugene, Oregon next week for the NCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field National Championships, and with every athlete perfectly situated into her respective event after the NCAA Prelims this past weekend, it’s looking more and more like the home team could capture its 2nd women’s outdoor title in 3 years.

After a superb showing at the NCAA West Regionals in Austin, Texas, Oregon will open its doors in the Pacific Northwest to the rest of the nation with a large lead over the defending national champion Arkansas Lady Razorbacks in the last batch of outdoor team rankings released on Tuesday by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA).

Oregon owns a near 63-point lead in the computer team rankings over the Razorbacks, who are then followed by LSU and Southern California. The 4 aforementioned teams retained the spots they held a week ago and are joined in the top-5 by Kentucky.

In terms of entrants into the national championship meet, there’s a different story.

LSU had a strong weekend of its own out in Lexington, Kentucky, where the NCAA East Regionals were being held. The Tigers lead the way with a total of 19 entries, including a whopping 12 in the sprints and hurdles events. The Tigers are hoping to return to glory after last winning a title in 2008.

Following LSU with the 2nd-most entrants are Oregon and Arkansas, who each have 17. Oregon’s 9 sprints/hurdlers are tied for the 2nd-most of any team with Southern California – who have 12 total entrants – while the Lady Razorbacks’ 4 combined event athletes are a meet-high.

Kentucky has 16 qualifiers for Eugene, with 7 coming in sprints and hurdles events and another 5 coming in jumps events.

Georgia sits right on the cusp of the top-5, coming in at 6th once again. However, the Bulldogs should make some noise at Historic Hayward Field with a meet-best 7 entries in jumps events. Their 2 combined events entries should also heavily factor into the final standings.

Rounding out the top-10 of the rankings are Texas A&M, Florida, Texas and Kansas State. The Aggies will have 14 entries in Oregon, while Florida is right on their heels with 13.

You’ll see many of the teams listed here – and more – at the 2017 NCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field Championships from June 7-10 at Historic Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon. If you can’t watch NCAAs in person, make sure to follow along with them across the ESPN family of networks starting June 7 at 3:30 pm ET on ESPN3 and throughout the weekend, culminating in the final day (June 10) showing in prime time at 6:30 pm ET on ESPN.
