HISTORY WITH THE BRUINS

Ohio State and UCLA have only gone head-to-head twice with the Buckeyes trailing 0-2 in the series. However, the two teams have crossed paths seven times at the NCAA Championships over the years. 

A PEEK AT 2018

The Scarlet & Gray has 10 letterwinners off the 2017 NCAA Regional squad returning and welcomes six newcomers to the program. Included in the 10 are Alexis Mattern and Kaitlyn Hofland, a pair of All-Big Ten honorees a season ago. 

IN THE NATIONAL RANKINGS

The Buckeyes start the season sitting at No. 22 in the 2018 NACGC/W Preseason Coaches’ Poll. Other Big Ten teams in the Top 25 include No. 7 Michigan, No. 9 Nebraska, No. 20 Iowa, No. 23 Illinois and No. 25 Penn State. Ohio State will face three of the five ranked conference foes.

B1G PRESEASON POLL

Ohio State was voted fourth in the Big Ten Preseason Coaches’ Poll, the conference announced on Dec. 14. The Buckeyes checked in behind Michigan, Nebraska and Iowa while Penn State rounded out the top five selections. In addition, senior Alexis Mattern and freshman Jenna Swartzentruber were named gymnasts to watch in the league.
