From there, the Huskers kept control with a 69.550 on vault, led by Anton Stephenson's 14.850 to tie for the event title with Iowa's Dylan Ellsworth.

Antonio Castro tied for the pommel horse title with a 14.200 for the Huskers third event title of the night.

Kyle King added a career high 13.400 on high bar to finish third. Jake Bonnay scored a 13.550 to finish second. Alex Magsam added a 13.750 on still rings to finish second.
