The Pac-12 Championships not only provided a rematch between Utah and UCLA but also a battle between two of the top freshmen in the conference: MyKayla Skinner and Kyla Ross. And it was the third rotation of Saturday's meet in Stanford, California, that provided some huge scores for both gymnasts.

UCLA's Ross grabbed her second 10.0 of the season on balance beam with a flawless exercise. It was the fourth overall 10.0 for the 2012 Olympic champion this season. Ross has had a steadiness on balance beam and really shows the elite polish in all of her routines.

Three of Ross' four perfect 10s have come on the road. She picked up Pac-12 Freshman of the Year honors after the conclusion of the meet. The Bruins finished tied with Washington for third with a 197.100.

Not to be outdone, Utah's Skinner added a 10.0 of her own in the anchor spot on floor exercise. An alternate on the 2016 Olympic team, she has dazzled with her incredible difficulty in her floor routine, including a double-twisting double tuck to open her routine.

It is the second 10.0 of the season for Skinner. She won the Pac-12 all-around, floor exercise, and vault titles as Utah took home the team title with a 197.925.
