An insane Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational (more insane than usual even!) bequeathed the fifth week of the 2023-24 NCAA D1 wrestling season with gobs of upsets. Over 130 by our count!

CKLV brackets can be found here

The usual caveats apply -- some of these guys aren't ranked because they aren't starters but they would be ranked if they were starters (and indeed some might be starter and ranked by the end of the year). Plus some upsets won't look like upsets by the end of the year. Stuff like that is good to keep in mind when checking out this list. 

We broke up the upsets (because there were so many) into categories to make the list more easily digestible.
