The DI NCAA men's team title came down to the 4x4 with Texas A&M winning the 4x4 and the team title by 0.5 pts. However, if Florida's Kunle Fasasi doesn't get DQ'd in the 400m final earlier in the day Florida would have won the team title.

The referee, after consulting with the appropriate officials, shall disqualify a competitor who:

b. Cuts in front of another runner without proper clearance or one full stride on the curved line start;
