Texas is a year older and with basically the same team from last year. Adrian Ortiz was a part timer at 6 for the Longhorns and is gone but they bring in Chih Chi Huang who looks to be in a 3-way battle with Markes and Banzer for 5/6. The Longhorns should have no trouble on Saturday with a Washington team that lost Mitch Stewart and Jake Douglas.
Miami will face off against Utah State in the other Saturday match, and one I expect Miami to win. The Canes have gotten progressively better each year under Head Coach Aljosa Piric who now enters his 3rd season at the helm. Miami will however have some issues down low as it gets a little sketchy after Dunlap at 4. Utah State may be able to take advantage of the bottom of the Miami lineup but the top will prove to be just too strong and the Canes should prevail.
The Sunday final should again see a heavily favored Texas squad have their way with Miami although the Canes will have a chance in a few matches and may manage to snag a point before it's over.
Predictions:Miami (FL) 4, Utah State 1
