About the MOUNTAIN PACIFIC SPORTS FEDERATION from their website mpsports.org:

"The Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) was established during the 1992-1993 season to serve the competitive needs of member institutions from the Big West, Pacific-10 and Western Athletic Conferences, as well as other selected universities in the western United States; and to provide championships competition for Division I intercollegiate Olympic sports in a conference setting. The founding principles on which the MPSF was originally formed were to provide enhanced competition and championship opportunities for sports without conference affiliation; to contain the costs of competition; and to ensure the survival of sports impacted by Title IX and other fiscal pressures."

Stanford Men's Gymnastics suffered defeat in the last contest and will not compete again until the MPSF championships:

From Stanford Men's Gymnastics: One Blemish to a Near Perfect Season:

"Overall, Stanford did not have its best day, finishing with a total score of 435.800, nearly seven points below the school's seasonal average. Much of that can be explained by the fact that the Cardinal was without its top gymnast and NCAA's No. 1 all-around gymnast Akash Modi. Compliment that with Oklahoma posting the third highest score in NCAA history of 452.350, well above their 447.917 average, and that spells a recipe for disaster.

The Sooners took home the crown on five of six events on the night, both as a team and individually."
