The beauty of loaded fields is not only do you get to see high-level wrestling, but you also get to see it very early. Everyone can find their favorite men's freestyle matchups at the Bill Farrell International Open on the FloArena brackets here.
Wrestling starts Friday, November 11, at 10 AM EST, watch every match LIVE on FloWrestling!
Here are the top six matches to watch in round one:
6) 74KG - Chance Marsteller vs. Tony Piva I don't know anything about Piva, but I really don't know what to expect from Marsteller. I'll be glued, even if Piva is no match for Chance, we'll still get a gauge.
5) 70KG - Tommy Gantt vs. Kevin LeValley Both guys have a high pedigree, but I wonder about the progression for Gantt since taking a freestyle-only focus.
4) 70KG - Dylan Alton vs. Nazar Kulchytskyy Kulchytskyy is a dangerous freestyler. He'll be the favorite here, but Alton's talent has always been there.
3) 70KG - Hayden Hidlay vs. Adam Hall Hall is Hidlay's coach at N.C. State, and they'll knock heads in round one. Have to figure teacher handles the student here.
Adam Hall tech falls NCAA finalist Brandon Sorensen in the University Trials finals:
2) 61KG - Nick Lee vs. Alan Waters I know it's a salty vet against a pup, but I don't care. There's no way I'm not watching this match. Be honest, you saw how good Lee looked at Fargo and Who's #1 and are at least curious how he stacks ups. He's been training at the Nittany Lion Wrestling Club, so he should come in as prepared as ever.
1) 61KG - Josh Kindig vs. Joey Lazor Two showstoppers with scrambling and upper-body ability. We won't see a lot of holding back here from either guy. Kindig down at 61 could be scary given his athleticism and skill set.
