​WHAT JUST HAPPENED? The defending NCAA champions -- Alabama -- got off to a massive start out of lane one with ​Connor Oslin​ in 20.39 by out-splitting ​Ryan Murphy​ of Cal (20.47) to take the lead. At the 100 mark, it was a three team race between California (43.63), Alabama (43.69), and Texas (43.75). Enter ​Joseph Schooling.​ Schooling unloaded a 19.45 butterfly split for the Longhorns to give them the lead, but Bama's Luke Kaliszak ​had a great split as well (19.94) to keep the Crimson Tide in contention going into the anchor leg. Cal was still in the picture, too with ​Justin Lynch​​'s​ 20.04 fly leg. Texas had a slight lead as ​Brett Ringgold ​(18.34) dove into the water, but Alabama's ​Zane Waddell​ fought hard to split an 18.26. In the end, it was Texas taking the win in a new NCAA, Meet, and US Open Record time of 1:21.54 -- destroying the old record. Also going under the old record was Alabama in second with a time of 1:21.89. California faded to third and finished with a time of 1:22.28.​
