In an attempt to take down the collegiate 5k record, one of the greatest NCAA track athletes of all-time, Edward Cheserek of Oregon, was beaten by junior Justyn Knight of Syracuse. Knight won in 13:17.51 just holding off former Villanova Wildcat Sam McEntee (13:17.55). Cheserek finished fourth in 13:24. With the time, Knight moves to #6 all-time on the collegiate 5k list just in front of Olympic medalist Galen Rupp.
