Penn State To Wrestle Oklahoma State On Sunday, February 19
The host Cowboys and Nittany Lions have both managed to navigate a brutal dual gauntlet to get to this point. Both teams boast undefeated records and have dominated every tournament they have entered. The most impressive performance of the year came when OSU set the Southern Scuffle scoring record.
Oklahoma State brings a whopping 10 ranked wrestlers into this dual, with no wrestler ranked lower than 11th. The Cowboys' NCAA 141-pound champion, Dean Heil, brings an undefeated record into this dual and has been OSU's most consistent performer. Penn State is led by reigning NCAA 149-pound champion Zain Retherford.
This match will not only determine the dual national champion but also set the stage for which team will have the edge heading into the NCAA Tournament on March 16-18 in St. Louis. The projected lineups feature 19 ranked wrestlers, with only two wrestlers ranked outside the top 10. The only place to watch the dual live is on FloWrestling.
