#NCAAMGym Week 10 Power Rankings B1G continues to impress

With the large variation in scores across regions, these rankings aim to provide a fluid assessment of rank based on performance and current momentum. The + or - next to a team's name represents how much they moved up (+) or down (-) since last week's power rankings.

1. Oklahoma Sooners (-)

Make that four consecutive regular seasons without a loss for Oklahoma. The Sooners are first as a team on every event and own the top individual on every event. The only thing ruining a clean sweep is Stanford's Akash Modi topping the AA standings. The Sooners look healthy as ever and ready to continue their winning streak.

Next competition: MPSF Championships on April 8th

2. Stanford Cardinal (-)

Stanford did not compete this weekend and didn't move in the rankings.

Next competition: Home vs. California on April 1st

3. Ohio State Buckeyes (-)

Ohio State did not compete and didn't move in the rankings.

Next competition: @Illinois on March 24th

4. Illinois Fighting Illini (+1)

Even with an injury-riddled lineup, Illinois did enough this week to move back into the top-four. It's no guarantee that they stay there, however, with Minnesota peaking at the right time. A home meet on Friday night against the Buckeyes will set the tone for the Illini heading into the postseason.

Next competition: Home vs. Ohio State on March 24th

5. Minnesota Golden Gophers (-1)

As is the case with many teams, Minnesota has yet to field a true full lineup. A gymnast like Tristan Duran doing more events might be what it takes for Minnesota to go from a consistent 410+ team, to a consistent 415+ team.

Next competition: @Nebraska on March 25th

6. Penn State Nittany Lions (+1)

I really love the makeup of this Penn State team. Losing Michael Burns for the year caps their upside, but the Nittany Lions have really brought it on a consistent basis this year. It's a hard sell to say that this team will win a B1G title, but their veteran/youth mix will keep things interesting down the stretch.

Next competition: Home vs. Iowa on March 25th

7. Iowa Hawkeyes (+1)

The Hawkeyes have impressed me more than any other team in the second-half of the 2017 season. They've gone from looking like a team in a rebuilding year to a team that is set to make genuine noise if they can keep up the pace. It's no one-man show either as many guys have stepped up.

Next competition: @Penn State on March 25th

8. Nebraska Cornhuskers (-2)

It's tough to know what you're going to get from Nebraska on any given day. In a tightly-packed B1G field they can be among the top or bottom teams. The Huskers will need to be better at competing on the road as their season average at away meets is nearly 12 points lower (-11.895) than home meets. That's the highest number in the country among teams with multiple home meets.

Next competition: Home vs. Minnesota on March 25th

9. Michigan Wolverines (-)

I'll say it again: the B1G is deep this year. That means even though Michigan rounds out the conference in these rankings, they're moving in the right direction. Of their 15-man lineup against Penn State last weekend, twelve competitors were sophomores or freshmen. They may not finish at the top in 2017, but the future looks good.

Next competition: Home vs. UIC on March 25th

10. Air Force Falcons (+2)

Similar to Nebraska, home meets have become a welcomed sight for Air Force in 2017. The Falcons rank just behind the Huskers in home/away difference (-11.654). With that said, it was a good weekend for the Falcons who avoided any scores below a 12.3.

Next competition: USAG Collegiate Championships on March 24th

11. California Golden Bears (-)

Cal did not compete and didn't move in the rankings.

Next competition: @Stanford on April 1st

12. Navy Midshipmen (-2)

Without Tang or West, it's tough to take much stock into Navy's 382 against Air Force. They were also forced to count a fluke score on HB. So long as it was just a rest weekend for their two stars, the Mids will be just fine.

Next competition: USAG Collegiate Championships on March 24th

13. William & Mary Tribe (-)

A 401.6 was a nice way to end a good regular season for the Tribe. This is an experienced team which usually spells good things in the postseason. We'll see if they keep the ball rolling at USAG's and ECAC's.

Next competition: USAG Collegiate Championships on March 24th

14. Army Black Knights (-)

Closing out the regular season with three away meets isn't easy, but Army has made strides during the stretch. Senior Leo Genders has been a bright spot for the Black Knights and will carry them into the postseason.

Next competition: ECAC Championships on April 8th

15. Arizona State Sun Devils (-)

Arizona State did not compete and didn't move in the rankings.

Next competition: USAG Collegiate Championships on March 24th

16. Springfield Pride (-)

Springfield did not compete and didn't move in the rankings.

Next competition: USAG Collegiate Championships on March 24th

17. Washington Huskies (-)

Washington did not compete and didn't move in the rankings.

Next competition: USAG Collegiate Championships on March 24th

18. UIC Flames (-)

UIC is young and it shows from week-to-week. We saw their potential two weeks ago when they scored a 387, but there isn't enough at the moment on events like PH, PB & HB to score that high on a consistent basis.

Next competition: @Michigan on March 25th

19. Temple Owls (-)

Temple is very close to passing UIC in these rankings. They've proven they're a consistent 375 team with the potential to exceed 380.

Next competition: USAG Collegiate Championships on March 24th

20. SC United (-)

SC United did not compete and didn't move in the rankings.
