Other MIAA teams in the top ten consist of No. 2 Lindenwood, No. 3 Central Missouri, host No. 6 Nebraksa-Kearney, and No. 8 Emporia State.
 
One other team that the men will have to get by is defending champions Augustana, who is ranked No. 1 in the Central Region and has won five-straight regional championships (2012-2016) heading into Saturdays meet.
 
The MSSU women finished ninth in last year's competition and will take on a field that includes three other MIAA schools in the Central Region top ten. Pittsburg State leads all teams at No. 1, while Fort Hays State and Southwest Baptist go back-to-back in sixth and seventh, respectively.
