All races are strictly team races, and each team will be limited to nine runners in the team race. Teams may enter up to 15 individuals and run additional team members in the 2:30 p.m. CT open race.

The men's team will be racing for the first time since winning the Ken Garland Invitational on Sept. 17. The Bears are slated to race nine individuals, including Eric Anderson, Matt Henderson, Henry Huff, Jeff Kirwin, Matt League, Sean McCullough, Devin Meyrer, Matt Parham and Jordan West.

The men’s field features 26 teams and six ranked foes, including Eastern Kentucky (No. 9), Wisconsin (No. 12), UTEP (No. 18), Mississippi (No. 20), North Carolina State (No. 23) and Washington State (No. 24). The Bears will also face regional rivals Texas, Texas A&M and UT Arlington.
