posted on 04/09/2014

ANN ARBOR, Mich., April 9, 2014 Acaa The University of Michigan and U.S. national all-around champion Sam Mikulak of Corona del Mar/University of Michigan, look to defend NCAA titles this week at the National Collegiate Men's Gymnastics National Championships, held at Crisler Center on the Michigan campus in Ann Arbor. The team and all-around finals will air live on the Big Ten Network on Friday, April 11, at 7 p.m. ET.

"I think with us hosting, it puts a little more urgency to the situation," Michigan Men's Gymnastics Head Coach Kurt Golder told USA Gymnastics at the beginning of the season. "The guys have taken on the challenge of repeating every day in the gym."

2012 Olympic team gold medalist Jordyn Wieber, who is currently working as team manager for the University of California Acaa Los Angeles' women's gymnastics team, will be signing autographs from 5:30-7 p.m. ET prior to the men's team and all-around final. To purchase tickets, click here.
