#29 Boise State Hosts BYU, Utah State

Boise State, BYU and Utah State will see who has the top women's gymnastics team this Friday night. The Broncos host their two rivals from Utah in a triangular meet beginning Friday night at 7 in Taco Bell Arena.

Boise State posted the 18th best women's gymnastics score in the nation (196.100) in topping Southern Utah on the road, but it still wasn't enough to impress the coaches. The Broncos remained at #29 this week.

They will have another opportunity to show their stuff this weekend when Boise State (9-1, 4-0 in the Western Athletic Conference) hosts #33 BYU and #49 Utah State Friday night in Taco Bell Arena.

Boise State is coming off a school record 49.350 on the vault in the win over Southern Utah. Redmon is #6 all-time at Boise State in all-around career wins with six. Boise State is #16 in the country on the vault, but is #33 on bars, #34 on floor and #37 on beam.
