Nearly 50 Upsets In A Scintillating Week 14 Of NCAA D1 Wrestling Duals

We've completed the antepenultimate week of duals (just two left!) and the upsets haven't slowed down. 

The usual caveats apply, and many of these results may not look like upsets with the benefit of hindsight at the very end of the season. However, strictly according to the most recent national rankings, these all do qualify as upsets from last week.  

165lbs - #12 Julian Ramirez, Cornell over #3 Quincy Monday, Princeton

One of the biggest upsets of the week took place in the intra-Ivy battle between the Big Red and the Tigers. Ramirez handed last year's 157-pound runnerup the first loss of his season. This was Ramirez's second win over an NCAA finalist, having beaten Shane Griffith in the fall of 2021 after Griffith won an NCAA title for Stanford in March of 2021. 

197lbs - HM Luke Surber, Oklahoma State over #1 Rocky Elam, Missouri

Surber had the match of his life last Sunday, knocking off the number one ranked wrestler in the nation 4-3 and setting up the Cowboys for an upset team win at home against the Tigers. 

157lbs - #15 Kaden Gfeller, Oklahoma State over #9 Jarrett Jacques, Missouri

Surber will be remembered as the hero, but Gfeller also contributed to the big team victory for Oklahoma State.

141lbs - #14 Carter Young, Oklahoma State over #7 Allan Hart, Missouri

Carter Young secured one of the biggest folkstyle wins of his nascent career. The true sophomore beat three-time national qualifier Hart in the first bout of the OSU v Mizzou dual. 

174lbs - #9 Peyton Mocco, Missouri over #5 Dustin Plott, Oklahoma State

Missouri got an upset of their own, as Mizzou's three-time national qualifier defeated last year's 6th placer, which only added to the drama at this superb competition.

197lbs - #24 Michial Foy, Minnesota over #10 Jacob Warner, Iowa

The light heavyweight division in the NCAA has been full of intrigue all season long. The Gopher's Foy got the biggest win of his collegiate career over Iowa's three-time All-American and four-time national qualifier. 

197lbs - #19 Cam Caffey, Michigan State over #9 Zac Braunagel, Illinois

Sparty got a big lift from their senior 197-pounder, who scored four points in the final 20 seconds of his match with his Big Ten rival, though the Illini still prevailed in the dual meet.

197lbs - #4 Nino Bonaccorsi, Pittsburgh over #3 Yonger Bastida, Iowa State

And Nino Bonaccorsi capped off a weekend of 197 chaos with his dramatic win over Bastida, which, unfortunately for the Panthers, was not enough to propel Pittsburgh for a win in their dual with the Cyclones.
