In addition, five Pac-12 Conference teams are ranked among the top 25 and all eight of the league's gymnastics programs are in the top 36.

Oregon State's home schedule includes duals against No. 8 UCLA (Jan. 23), No. 12 Arizona State (Feb. 5), No. 34 Washington (Feb. 13) and No. 33 Stanford (Feb. 25).
