3 Dozen Upsets In Week 12 Of The NCAA Season!

All the upsets that we could find from week 12 of the 2022-23 NCAA D1 wrestling season. 

While many of the upsets may not look like upsets with the benefit of hindsight at the end of the season, for now, according to the rankings, these are all upsets. 

And only one upset at 197 this week. Can you believe it!?!

The first of two titanic upsets from Nittany Lion freshmen in their dual versus the Wolverines.
