RQS Update – Week 10

Here’s your weekly look at the RQS picture, including what RQS each team can reach based on scores from the week’s upcoming meets. We’re getting down to it now, and with several teams already done until conference championships, the picture is becoming quite a bit clearer.

**This now includes the results from Tuesday night, which is why it will differ from Monday’s official weekly rankings.

But first, as I did last week, this is what the regionals draw would look like if the season ended right at this moment.

Regional A: 1. Oklahoma, 12. Nebraska, 13. Oregon State
Regional B: 2. UCLA, 11. Arkansas, 14. Auburn
Regional C: 3. LSU, 10. Cal, 15. Denver
Regional D: 4. Utah (host), 9. Kentucky, 16. Boise State
Regional E: 5. Florida, 8. Washington, 17. Arizona State
Regional F: 6. Alabama (host), 7. Michigan, 18. George Washington

Do I need to complain about the highest-ranked teams getting punished with the most challenging regionals again? Yes? OK good. In this setup, you would rather be ranked 4-6 than 1-3, which makes NO DAMN SENSE.

In cast you were curious, this year’s regional event draw is
#1 seed – Floor (end on bye)
#2 seed – Beam (end on bars)
#3 seed – Bye (end on beam)
#4 seed – Bye (end on vault)
#5 seed – Bars (end on bye)
#6 seed – Vault (end on floor)

I like the 2-3 seeds ending on bars and beam.

Now, onto the RQSs. Scores in bold will be part of the six scores used for final RQS and can no longer be removed.

1. Oklahoma – 197.995
Road Score 1: 198.125
Road Score 2: 198.050
Road Score 3: 197.550
Home/Road Score 1: 198.375
Home/Road Score 2: 198.150
Home/Road Score 3: 198.100
RQS: 197.995

Maximum possible RQS after next meet: 198.160

Oklahoma competes twice this weekend, which will simply serve as more opportunity to run the RQS up into the stratosphere. In the first meet, the score to watch out for is 197.875, what Oklahoma needs to set a new all-time RQS record. With three meets left, setting the record seems inevitable at this point, but it could happen as soon as Friday.

Regardless, Oklahoma has already secured the #1 ranking for another week.


2. UCLA – 197.840
Road Score 1: 197.800
Road Score 2: 197.750
Road Score 3: 197.625
Home/Road Score 1: 198.275
Home/Road Score 2: 198.075
Home/Road Score 3: 197.950
RQS: 197.840

Maximum possible RQS after next meet: 197.970

UCLA recorded a 198.275 on Tuesday (didn’t do a live blog, so summary: UCLA’s best meet of the year, vault was shockingly excellent, some issues in the second half, Carol sure wasn’t going to miss senior night, maybe a real-world 197.6?), a performance which allows the Bruins to move ahead of LSU for the moment, though with UCLA idle until Pac-12s, LSU will have a chance to re-pass UCLA over the weekend.


3. LSU – 197.755
Road Score 1: 198.075
Road Score 2: 197.575
Road Score 3: 197.575
Home/Road Score 1: 198.175
Home/Road Score 2: 198.100
Home/Road Score 3: 197.450
RQS: 197.755

Maximum possible RQS after next meet: 197.900

LSU is #2 in the weekly rankings but #3 in the in-progress rankings after UCLA’s Tuesday performance. The Tigers do have one more meet before the conference championship and can stay ahead of UCLA in Monday’s rankings by scoring 197.850 against Arizona on Saturday.


4. Utah – 197.415
Road Score 1: 197.550
Road Score 2: 197.550
Road Score 3: 197.450
Home/Road Score 1: 197.700
Home/Road Score 2: 197.450
Home/Road Score 3: 197.075
RQS: 197.415

Maximum possible RQS after next meet: 197.540

Utah is already set at #4 for next Monday’s rankings, not able to catch UCLA and—with Florida on a rest week—unable to be caught by any other team. It’s extremely unlikely that Utah will move higher than 4th at this point (it would take two scores of 198.5 in the final two meets), but Florida still presents a danger after conference championships.


5. Florida – 197.365
Road Score 1: 197.400
Road Score 2: 196.950
Road Score 3: 196.700
Home/Road Score 1: 198.150
Home/Road Score 2: 197.925
Home/Road Score 3: 197.850
RQS: 197.365

Maximum possible RQS after next meet: 197.655

Florida is off this weekend, so that maximum RQS refers to where Florida can go after SECs—and is therefore Florida’s maximum possible final RQS on the season. With enough of a lead over the trailing teams, Florida is guaranteed to stay #5 this week despite not competing.


6. Alabama – 197.120
Road Score 1: 197.300
Road Score 2: 197.300
Road Score 3: 197.075
Home/Road Score 1: 197.525
Home/Road Score 2: 197.000
Home/Road Score 3: 196.925
RQS: 197.120

Maximum possible RQS after next meet: 197.240

Alabama has started to distance itself from Michigan in 7th, so while catching the top 5 is still unattainable at this point, it will require just a 197.050 this weekend to retain the #6 ranking.


7. Michigan – 196.945
Road Score 1: 197.175
Road Score 2: 196.775
Road Score 3: 196.575
Home/Road Score 1: 197.550
Home/Road Score 2: 197.250
Home/Road Score 3: 196.950
RQS: 196.945

Maximum possible RQS after next meet: 197.140

Based on results from earlier in the week, Michigan will go no lower than 7th in Monday’s rankings.


8. Washington – 196.915
Road Score 1: 197.075
Road Score 2: 197.025
Road Score 3: 196.525
Home/Road Score 1: 197.400
Home/Road Score 2: 197.000
Home/Road Score 3: 196.950
RQS: 196.915

Maximum possible RQS after next meet: 197.090

Washington was not able to pass Michigan with Thursday’s performance but did ensure retaining the #8 ranking.


9. Kentucky – 196.800
Road Score 1: 196.950
Road Score 2: 196.800
Road Score 3: 196.700
Home/Road Score 1: 197.100
Home/Road Score 2: 196.850
Home/Road Score 3: 196.700
RQS: 196.800

Maximum possible RQS after next meet: 196.880

Kentucky is already done until SECs though could face a challenge from Oregon State and Nebraska since Kentucky was not able to improve its RQS at Wednesday’s meet. The good news for Kentucky is that a top-4 conference spot is already locked up with no SEC team able to pass before the SEC Championship.


10. Cal – 196.775
Road Score 1: 196.700
Road Score 2: 196.650
Road Score 3: 196.375
Home/Road Score 1: 197.500
Home/Road Score 2: 197.225
Home/Road Score 3: 196.925
RQS: 196.775

Maximum possible RQS after next meet: 197.000

Cal will not compete again until the Pac-12 championship (at which point that max RQS 197.000 will be possible), so this weekend will just be a waiting game to see who can/will pass. The one that will matter most to Cal is Oregon State since those two are fighting it out for the final evening-session spot at Pac-12s (and all the juicy crack scoring it can entail) to join UCLA, Utah, and Washington. Cal will be wanting Oregon State to score under 196.900 this weekend so that Cal gets the spot.  


11. Arkansas – 196.660
Road Score 1: 196.875
Road Score 2: 196.350
Road Score 3: 196.150
Home/Road Score 1: 197.275
Home/Road Score 2: 197.175
Home/Road Score 3: 196.750
RQS: 196.660

Maximum possible RQS after next meet: 196.765

Arkansas competes at home this weekend and therefore cannot drop the lowest road score, which stunts the team’s current max RQS and makes Arkansas vulnerable to being passed by Oregon State and Nebraska.


11. Nebraska – 196.660
Road Score 1: 196.700
Road Score 2: 196.700
Road Score 3: 196.175
Home/Road Score 1: 197.125
Home/Road Score 2: 196.875
Home/Road Score 3: 196.850
RQS: 196.660

Maximum possible RQS after next meet: 196.850

Nebraska has a real chance to move up on some teams this week with a solid Big Five performance, needing a 196.725 to guarantee getting ahead of Arkansas and a 196.775 to guarantee passing Cal, and a 196.900 to get ahead of Kentucky.


13. Oregon State – 196.655
Road Score 1: 196.525
Road Score 2: 196.500
Road Score 3: 196.300
Home/Road Score 1: 197.300
Home/Road Score 2: 196.975
Home/Road Score 3: 196.975
RQS: 196.655

Maximum possible RQS after next meet: 196.855

Oregon State will also expect to make up some ground in the rankings this week, the most important goal being the 196.925 needed to move ahead of Cal in the Pac-12 standings, though Arkansas and Kentucky are also passable, and a 196.875 and 197.050 respectively would seal those moves. 


14. Boise State – 196.650
Road Score 1: 197.000
Road Score 2: 196.625
Road Score 3: 196.400
Home/Road Score 1: 196.875
Home/Road Score 2: 196.725
Home/Road Score 3: 196.400
RQS: 196.650

Maximum possible RQS after next meet: 196.770

Boise State already competed this week and did the job, scoring a season high and moving (at least for the moment) ahead of Auburn and Denver and into 14th. Denver can still re-pass, and Georgia can pass, depending on their results, but Boise State will be no worse than 16th on Monday.


15. Auburn – 196.595
Road Score 1: 196.900
Road Score 2: 196.500
Road Score 3: 196.375
Home/Road Score 1: 197.000
Home/Road Score 2: 196.625
Home/Road Score 3: 196.575
RQS: 196.595

Maximum possible RQS after next meet: 196.720

Auburn is idle this weekend and will have to wait and see which teams end up passing. Plenty can, so this might get interesting.


16. Denver – 196.525
Road Score 1: 196.575
Road Score 2: 196.525
Road Score 3: 195.975
Home/Road Score 1: 197.300
Home/Road Score 2: 196.800
Home/Road Score 3: 196.750
RQS: 196.525

Maximum possible RQS after next meet: 196.790

It’s a weekend of possible gains for Denver. It will be tough to get at Cal (requiring 197.250 to pass). Oregon State, Nebraska, and Arkansas could be a little more doable depending on what they score, though it’s Auburn and Boise State that Denver will really hope to pass, Auburn requiring a 196.350 and Boise State requiring 196.625.

Remaining ahead of the rest of the teams in the teens will be another goal, requiring 196.900 to stay above all of them.


17. Arizona State – 195.510
Road Score 1: 196.525
Road Score 2: 196.475
Road Score 3: 196.250
Home/Road Score 1: 196.800
Home/Road Score 2: 196.725
Home/Road Score 3: 196.575
RQS: 196.510

Maximum possible RQS after next meet: 196.620

Arizona State’s score to watch out for in Operation Pass Auburn is 196.700, which would be close to a season high but is conceivable. Because Georgia can pass this week, Arizona State may find itself on the bubble for the top 18, which makes that 196.700 all the more critical, also the score needed to ensure that GW and BYU can’t pass. 


18. George Washington – 196.460
Road Score 1: 196.475
Road Score 2: 196.300
Road Score 3: 196.175
Home/Road Score 1: 196.875
Home/Road Score 2: 196.825
Home/Road Score 3: 196.525
RQS: 196.460

Maximum possible RQS after next meet: 196.600

George Washington has the outside-iest chance to pass Auburn, requiring another program-high 196.875 but may also be vulnerable to Georgia in that race for the top 18 so will hope to pass some of those teams currently in the 196.5s even though those teams have higher peaks.


19. BYU – 196.430
Road Score 1: 196.450
Road Score 2: 196.375
Road Score 3: 196.375
Home/Road Score 1: 196.625
Home/Road Score 2: 196.500
Home/Road Score 3: 196.450
RQS: 196.395

Maximum possible RQS after next meet: 196.480

BYU has already competed this week and can therefore go no higher than 19th and will be vulnerable to Georgia. With a maximum RQS of 196.480 after conference champs, it’s quite unlikely that BYU will get a seeded spot.


20. Georgia – 196.365
Road Score 1: 196.150
Road Score 2: 196.125
Road Score 3: 195.825
Home/Road Score 1: 197.525
Home/Road Score 2: 197.000
Home/Road Score 3: 196.725
RQS: 196.365

Maximum possible RQS after next meet: 196.705

This weekend presents Georgia’s big chance to get out of the trouble zone as Georgia can guarantee passing a number of teams with a strong result at Utah. It will take 197.275 to go ahead of Boise State, 197.125 for Arizona State, 197.025 for George Washington, 197.000 for Auburn, and 196.425 for BYU. In reality, not all of those teams are going to score season highs this weekend so it won’t take that much, but it will still require a road hit to a level we haven’t seen from Georgia yet.


21. Missouri – 196.280
Road Score 1: 196.625
Road Score 2: 196.050
Road Score 3: 196.025
Home/Road Score 1: 196.925

Home/Road Score 1: 196.375
Home/Road Score 2: 196.175
Home/Road Score 3: 196.150
RQS: 195.705

Maximum possible RQS after next meet: 195.750

Central Michigan did what it could do on Thursday, reaching the 196 zone and putting the pressure on the other bubble teams to match that result. But, with a lower peak, CMU is not out of the danger zone yet.


33. Iowa – 195.680
Road Score 1: 196.000
Road Score 2: 195.775
Road Score 3: 195.600
Home/Road Score 1: 195.775
Home/Road Score 2: 195.725
Home/Road Score 3: 195.525
RQS: 195.680

Maximum possible RQS after next meet: 195.775

Iowa is not out of danger yet because Pittsburgh, Kent State, New Hampshire, and Arizona all have higher maximums this week and could be in position to pass if they have big weeks, which would put Iowa right on the cusp. Getting ahead of Central Michigan is therefore a must, requiring 195.675.


34. New Hampshire – 195.620
Road Score 1: 195.650
Road Score 2: 195.225
Road Score 3: 195.175
Home/Road Score 1: 196.425
Home/Road Score 2: 196.125
Home/Road Score 3: 195.925
RQS: 195.620

Maximum possible RQS after next meet: 195.870

New Hampshire, meanwhile, will be looking to jump ahead of Iowa and CMU to solidify its position, requiring at most a 195.975, while getting ahead of CMU takes 195.625.


35. Kent State – 195.600
Road Score 1: 196.125
Road Score 2: 195.575
Road Score 3: 195.325
Home/Road Score 1: 196.625
Home/Road Score 2: 195.925
Home/Road Score 3: 195.050
RQS: 195.600

Maximum possible RQS after next meet: 195.915

Kent State can pick up a couple spots and go ahead of Iowa with a 195.950 this week, CMU with a 195.575, or possibly New Hampshire with a 196.400, at least one of which seems essential in averting the current drastic situation. Guaranteeing staying ahead of Arizona requires 196.025


36. Arizona – 195.520
Road Score 1: 196.125
Road Score 2: 195.025
Road Score 3: 194.975
Home/Road Score 1: 196.325
Home/Road Score 2: 195.750
Home/Road Score 3: 195.725
RQS: 195.520

Maximum possible RQS after next meet: 195.790

Arizona is in possible danger of getting passed by Pittsburgh this week (and could be vulnerable to USU if things don’t go well) and if that happens, will need to gain a spot on someone else to stay in the top 36. Arizona can guarantee passing CMU with a 195.925.


37. Pittsburgh – 195.440
Road Score 1: 196.100
Road Score 2: 195.500
Road Score 3: 195.250
Home/Road Score 1: 196.475
Home/Road Score 2: 196.225
Home/Road Score 3: 194.125
RQS: 195.440

Maximum possible RQS after next meet: 195.910

Pitt still has that 194.125 hanging around, which is what Pitt the team so dangerous for the top 36, allowing for the possibility of gaining ground even with a mediocre result. With another 196, Pitt would be more or less safe and one of the current top 36 would have to drop out.


38. Utah State – 195.385
Road Score 1: 195.725
Road Score 2: 195.325
Road Score 3: 195.275
Home/Road Score 1: 196.100
Home/Road Score 2: 195.450
Home/Road Score 3: 195.150
RQS: 195.385

Maximum possible RQS after next meet: 195.575

Utah State is still in it, but it’s going to be tough. To have any shot of getting into the top 36 after this week, it will take a 195.850. But also some help.


39. North Carolina – 195.300
Road Score 1: 196.050
Road Score 2: 195.750
Road Score 3: 195.075
Home/Road Score 1: 195.400
Home/Road Score 2: 195.300
Home/Road Score 3: 194.975
RQS: 195.300

Maximum possible RQS after next meet: 195.515

North Carolina is in real trouble. Even with a season high this week, UNC wouldn’t move into the top 36 on Monday, which means UNC is left needing to go big at both of the remaining meets to have a serious look at regionals.


40. Bowling Green – 195.235
Road Score 1: 195.500
Road Score 2: 195.400
Road Score 3: 195.325
Home/Road Score 1: 195.400

All remaining teams have been mathematically eliminated from regionals contention.

  1. BLESS YOU FOR THIS, SPENCER! Any idea where the teams will be going for the regionals? Since Utah and Bama are locked, I guessed that the UCLA regional will be at Minnesota, Oklahoma at Ohio State, LSU at Penn State, and Florida at NC State?

    1. I would assume that’s probably correct, unless they award the choice of what regional host OU would like to go to – based on travel I assume they’d pick Minnesota – also Maggie is from Minnesota so the Gophers would probably want OU at their meet for publicity sake and to sell more tickets to elite fans.

    1. The top two teams from each regional advance to nationals. So in the current picture, Alabama and Michigan just have to beat 18th ranked GW (and the other non-seeded teams) in order to advance. While Oklahoma has to beat either 12th ranked Nebraska or 13th ranked Oregon in order to advance.
      Basically, the 1-3 regionals have the strongest collection of 3-seed teams, while the 4-6 regionals have comparatively weaker 3-seed teams. So it is in theory harder for a 1-seed team to advance from the 1-3 regionals than to advance from the 4-6 regionals because they have to beat better teams to get that top two placement at regionals.

      1. Not to mention the 4 hosts are all right at the heels of the top 18, I think we could easily see one of them shake up the results (idk about challenging for nationals) but definitely finishing higher than a higher ranked seed.

      2. Plus Georgia could very well be up in the 3-seed region that would compete with OU/LSU/UCLA after their road meet for Utah’s senior night.

    2. Because the 2-3 seeds in the potential Regionals with OU, LSU and UCLA are stronger then the 2-3 combined seeds for the 4-6 and the top team has less room for error.

      For instance OU may not be able to count a fall with Oregon St. and Nebraska in its set, but if it was say Michigan and George Washington then based on how strong OU is they should be “safe” since a 197.100 could conceivably beat at least one of Michigan or GW but OSU and Nebraska could both score over 197.100.

      1. I think anon was referring to the score from the Oregon State meet. This post has 198.025 as the score from that meet, but the actual score was 198.075. UCLA’s current RQS is actually 197.840, not 197.830.
