The Nebraska Wrestling team enters the 2023-2024 season ranked No. 6 in the FloWrestling preseason polls as the Cornhuskers look to win their first conference title since 2009. 

The Cornhuskers will begin the season with a dual meet at North Dakota State on Nov. 4 in a pre-Big Ten schedule that also features a trip to Las Vegas for the Cliff Keen Invitational.

Nebraska, coached by Mark Manning since 2000, is led by junior Ridge Lovett who enters the season as the No.1-ranked 149-pound wrestler. Lovett is the No. 15-ranked pound-for-pound wrestler and was the NCAA runner-up at 149 in 2022. Lovett went 4-0 in 2022-2023 before redshirting. Peyton Robb (No. 3 at 157-pounds), Bubba Wilson (No. 9 at 165), Silas Allred (No. 6 at 197) round out a group of top-10 ranked wrestlers in their weight classes entering the season.
