Utah's gymnastics team, which finished second behind UCLA in the Pac-12 Championships, will find out who its opponents will be for the NCAA Regionals today at 1 p.m.
If the seeding holds according to the regional qualifying scores, fifth-ranked Nebraska and No. 17 Minnesota will join the Utes, who slipped a spot to No. 8 in the final rankings.
The Utes must finish first or second to advance to the NCAA Championships April 20-22 in Duluth, Ga.
The Utes are familiar with both Nebraska and Minnesota. The Huskers beat the Utes 197.6-197.45 to spoil Utah's last regular home meet.
The Golden Gophers are coached by the husband and wife tandem of Jim and Meg Stephenson. Jim was an assistant with the Utes for four years, helping coach the Utes' 1990 and 1992 national title teams.
