Gymnastics_medium
Alabama and Oklahoma share the No. 1 ranking on the balance beam.

Alabama gymnastics regained the No. 1 ranking this week just in time to head to Norman, Oklahoma tonight and face off against the the No. 2 squad in the land. It is the first time in two years that the top two teams have met and the last time Alabama took part in such a contest was in 2004.

Alabama and Oklahoma have been trading the two top slots in the national rankings since the second week of the season. The Tide squad regained the top ranking this week after a dominating performance on the road at Kentucky on Feb. 26. 

The meet will be at OU's Lloyd Noble Center and is set to start at 7 p.m. CST. The meet will be broadcast live on the Sooner Sports Network and will air on Cox Channel 7 in Norman and Oklahoma City and Cox Channel 3 in Tulsa.
