JOSEPH SCHOOLING! ​The Texas junior just catapulted out of nowhere on the anchor leg for the Longhorns, splitting an 18.34 en route to a winning time of 1:14.59. Texas was great across the board with ​Brett Ringgold​ (18.96), ​Jack Conger​ (18.37), ​Tate Jackson ​(18.92), and Schooling (18.34). Florida looked like they were going to take this one through the first three legs of ​Caeleb Dressel​ (18.23), ​Jan Switkowski​ (18.75), ​and Enzo Martinez Scarpe​ (18.72). However, their anchor ​Jack Blyzinskyj (19.18) was unable to hold off the hard charging Schooling. California snuck in for third with a 1:15.29 thanks to four solid 18-second splits across the board and NC State took fourth in 1:15.82 thanks to a strong lead-off from ​Ryan Held​ in 18.63. It looked like the Wolfpack had a shot at the title, but their anchor ​Scott Johnson​ had a 0.61 reaction time en route to a 19.57 split.
