UPDATE: Many were outraged at the high scores at this competition.
I love an upset.
A pre-meet light show wasn’t the only thing that lit up the Huntsman Center in Utah’s final home gymnastics meet of the season. The No. 7-ranked Utes electrified a crowd of 14,930 with the third-highest score in school history and upset No. 2 Florida 198.125-197.875.
The Utes scored season highs on three of four events, making their move on the favored Gators in the second rotation on the uneven bars, where Georgia Dabritz brought down the house with a perfect 10.0. …
Asked if the big bar score surprised him since bars has been an inconsistent event for the Utes this season, coach Greg Marsden responded,
“That’s the bar team I see in the gym all the time. I feel like this is the first time this year they really relaxed and performed how they do in practice.”

Both Florida and Oklahoma lost this weekend.
I’ll bet the coaches are (secretly) happy. It will sharpen focus going into the BIG meets coming up.
