The Oregon Ducks aren’t anticipated to compete for team awards this season

When the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships begin a four-day run Wednesday at Hayward Field, Texas is favorites to take the women’s title, while the men’s title race looks like a four-way, intense struggle between Florida, Texas, North Carolina A&T, and Georgia. The Oregon Ducks, on the other hand, do not appear to be in contention for any of the team awards.

The host Oregon Ducks aren’t expected to be in contention for a team prize, which is unusual. The top four teams in both genders get trophies. For the first time since 2007, the Ducks will finish outside the top 10 in both the men’s and women’s rankings, according to the Track & Field News form charts.

The decathlon 100 meters will kick off the competition at 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday. The majority of the men’s events will take place on Wednesday and Friday, while the women’s events will mostly take place on Thursday and Saturday. On a 10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1 system, team points are awarded to the top eight finishers in each event. According to Track & Field News, the Texas women are expected to score 79 points, with Florida coming in second with 63. The Ducks have sunk to the bottom of the standings, among the also-rans.
