Top 12 Upsets From Week Two Of D1 Wrestling

Josh Conklin Scotty Parker

King Robert Baratheon was known as "The Usurper," and the way this college season has gone already we may need a usurper of the week award.

We ran a top upsets list last week, and once again, this week's edition is not comprehensive. As always, any upset is worthy of acclaim, but these are the dozen of which we feel you should be aware.

12) #6 David McFadden (Virginia Tech) 4-3 over #4 Chandler Rogers (Oklahoma State)
Talk about clutch. David McFadden finishes the scramble with time running out and continues his push to break into that three-headed monster of Isaiah Martinez, Vincenzo Joseph, and Logan Massa. WATCH MATCH HERE.

11) Derek White (Oklahoma St.) over #11 Thomas Haines (Lock Haven), #19 Jordan Wood (Lehigh)
Remember when Derek White could make 197? Yeah, me neither. The latest Cowboy bulk job looked tremendous this weekend and had a shot to beat three ranked guys had he been able to topple Mike Hughes. Check out his win over Haines below.

10) Mike Van Brill (Rutgers) 3-2 over #15 Mike Longo (Oklahoma)
We knew this could be a massive season for Rutgers, and it doesn't seem like coach Scott Goodale and staff are waiting to get the Scarlet Knights in midseason form.

9) #4 Scotty Parker (Lehigh) over #3 Kaid Brock (Oklahoma St.)
How much of a jump can you make when you start the year ranked fourth? Scotty Parker looks like he has a chip on his shoulder this season. WATCH MATCH HERE.

8) #18 Christian Brunner (Purdue) 4-1 over #11 Danny Chaid (UNC)
Christian Brunner was part of the same recruiting class as Griffin Parriott and could be just as crucial to the Boilermakers' potential rise this season.

7) Geo Martinez (Oklahoma St.) over #4 Solomon Chishko (Virginia Tech)
With Boo Lewallen out for the first semester, Geo Martinez will at least have starting duties through December. If he continues to pile up four minutes of riding time like he did in the match below against Chishko, good luck to his future opponents.

6) #9 Te'Shan Campbell (Ohio St.) 14-0 over #7 Anthony Valencia (Arizona St.)
Tilts, tilts, and more tilts. Te'Shan "Tilt-A-Whirl" Campbell put it on Anthony Valencia in the Buckeyes' dual win over Arizona State on Sunday.

5) Eleazar De Luca (Rutgers) 8-2 over #13 Davion Jeffries (Oklahoma)
Eleazar De Luca may have emerged as a dark horse to make a run in Cleveland at the NCAA tournament.

4) Dylan Lydy (Purdue) 9-7 over #11 Ethan Ramos (UNC)
Dylan Lydy was a key part of Purdue's 3-0 day at the Journeymen Northeast Duals on Saturday (match below).

3) #11 Josh Shields (ASU) over #4 Micah Jordan (Ohio St.), #8 Alec Pantaleo (Michigan)
What a weekend for Josh Shields! Some thought he might not be starter when Jason Tsirtsis transferred in, but Shields has cemented himself as a strong All-American contender with wins over AAs Micah Jordan and Alec Pantaleo.

2) Quinton Rosser (NIU) 5-3 over #8 Drew Hughes (MSU)
Senior Quinton Rosser was once a 184-pounder and beat the former 165-pounder Hughes in the quarterfinals of the EMU Open.

1) Drew Mattin (Michigan) over #7 Sean Russell (Edinboro), #13 Brock Hudkins (N. Illinois)
Michigan true freshman Drew Mattin bounced back from a 1-2 performance at the Michigan State Open with his 125lb title at the Eastern Michigan Open. Mattin knocked off Edinboro's Sean Russell 6-3 in the semis and then Brock Hudkins of Northern Illinois 6-5 in the finals.
