There will be some great competition and we can think of a better meet to be at. This should be a great challenge for us.” The field for the race will include fellow SEC foe No. 24 Florida as well as No. 14 Texas who is also in the South Central Region along with the Razorbacks. There will also be four more teams in the top 10 in No. 3 Northern Arizona, No. 5 BYU, No. 7 Portland and No. 8 Columbia. For the first time, live video of the meet will be available at Flotrack.org.
