PROVO -- The BYU gymnastic team has climbed back up the ranking ladder to No. 13 this week after a slow descent over the weeks.

They owe their ranking to their best night of the season against Utah State on March 10th and their win over Central Michigan who were previously ranked No. 12.

Now they prepare to face No. 26 Southern Utah for the third time this season. The score is 1-1 in the series. The Cougars lost the last meet because of an unprecedented number of falls on bars.

The Cougars have a winning record of 10-4, losing only once at home. They have been ranked as high as No. 8 and their lowest ranking was No. 16. They have had many season and career highs this year as well as scoring a No. 3 BYU team record on bars March 10th against Utah State.

Southern Utah has a full week. Monday night they lost to Utah State. Friday they will host No. 9 Oklahoma and then they will have little rest before the match against the Cougars Saturday night.

Saturday's match will be at 7 p.m. in Cedar City in the Centrum.
