TCU's newly formed No. 1 team of Jerry Lopez and Cameron Norrie, who hadn't teamed together since March of last year, jumped out to an early lead after breaking Tom Fawcett from 30/40 to go up 1-0. TCU maintained the break lead with some routine holds until Fawcett and Yale Goldberg broke Lopez's 4-3 service from 30/40 to even it at 4-4. TCU had two chances to break back after going up 30/40 on Fawcett's serve but Fawcett hit back-to-back service winners to hold for 5-4. Norrie held at love for 5-5 and then he and Lopez broke Goldberg from 30/40 after Lopez ripped a return right down the middle which Fawcett was unable to put back in play. Lopez would serve it out from 40/15 to give TCU the 7-5 win.
In the decider at No. 2 neither team would face a break point in the first five service games but TCU's Alex Rybakov and Guillermo Nunez had two break opportunities as Michael Genender served at 2-3 (30/40). Rybakov went long on a second serve forehand return to bring up the no-ad point and then Genender served into Nunez's body and Kumar swatted his return away to get the hold for 3-3. The next break opportunity came when Nunez served at 5-5 (30/40) and Stanford would cash in after Rybakov netted a high volley. Stanford's Sameer Kumar tried to serve it out but after going up 40/30 TCU would come back to break on the no-ad point after a Genender volley sailed long. TCU went ahead 3-1 in the tiebreak but Stanford came back and won the next six point to close it out 7-3.
After dropping the doubles point TCU knew it'd have to sweep the top four spots to win because Stanford was going to be a big favorite at both No. 5 and No. 6. As expected the bottom two courts went pretty quickly. Stalder was unable to put much pace on his serve and David Wilczynski ate him up. Wilczynski jumped out to a 4-0 lead and then he'd add a third break to take the first set 6-1. Stalder was able to hold in his first service game of the second set but he wouldn't do it again as Wilczynski won the last five games to close it out 6-1, 6-1 in 57 minutes.
Stanford's Brandon Sutter extended the lead to 3-0 with a routine straight set win over Gianni Mancini at No. 6. Sutter jumped out to a 4-0 lead in the opening set and took the set 6-2. Mancini held for 2-1 in the second but Sutter won the final five games to take it 6-2, 6-2 in 1 hour and 2 minutes.
Despite trailing 3-0, TCU was actually in pretty good shape because they had set leads on three of the four remaining courts plus Cameron Norrie had just earned a split at No. 1 after taking the second set 6-1.
