Take a look at the 12 best upsets from week three of the Division I college wrestling season.
12) No. 16 Isaiah White, Nebraska over No. 11 Branson Ashworth, Wyoming — 165lb
Young Walter White continues to slowly work his way up the rankings.
11) Gage Hutchison, EMU over No. 10 Conan Jennings, Northwestern — 285lb
Conan the Barbarian was brought down to earth at the Keystone Classic.
10) Alex Madrigal, Cole Weaver over No. 9 Tyler Smith, Bucknell — 141lb
Remember when we said 141 was going to be a meatgrinder?
9) BC Laprade, Virginia Tech over No. 12 Colin Heffernan, Central Michigan — 157lb
The redshirt freshman knocks off one of CMU's senior leaders.
8) Cornell over No. 12 UNI
Given the youth of Cornell's roster, the Big Red have a ton of room to grow this season. That doesn't mean we expected them to beat the Panthers 30-10. Included in that were wins by No. 20 Yianni Diakomihalis over No. 12 Josh Alber at 141 and No. 17 Max Dean over No. 4 Drew Foster at 184. I should also mention No. 9 Taylor Lujan of UNI upset Cornell All-American Brandon Womack at 174.
7) No. 17 Michael Longo, Kaden Gfeller over No. 13 Kanen Storr — 141lb
Remember when we said 141 was going to be a meat-grinder this season, continued?
6) No. 7 Lehigh beats No. 3 Michigan 28-7
Lehigh's win itself wasn't mind-boggling — it was the totality of the victory. Sure, Michigan didn't have Stevan Micic, but the Mountain Hawks still got upsets at 157 (No. 19 Ian Brown over No. 9 Alec Pantaleo), 174 (No. 6 Jordan Kutler over No. 4 Myles Amine), and 184 (No. 7 Ryan Preisch over No. 5 Dom Abounader). Is Michigan worse than we thought? Is Lehigh even better or was it just a November dual that means nothing?
5) Anthony Cassar over No. 4 Matt McCutcheon, No. 12 Frank Mattiace — 197lb
I think it's safe to say Cassar has taken control of the 197-pound spot at Penn State.
4) Eric Clarke, Iowa Central over No. 7 Bryan Lantry, Buffalo — 141lb
Up a weight, a guy ranked to be an All-American still lost to a junior college wrestler.
3) Christian Moody, Oklahoma over No. 12 Zeke Moisey, West Virginia — 125lb
The long, strange fall for the former NCAA finalist continues.
2) Brandon Cray, Maryland over No. 9 Connor Schram, Stanford — 125lb
The crayfish gets his first victim of the year, former All-American Connor Schram.
1) Jacob Warner, Iowa over No. 3 Willie Miklus, Missouri — 197lb
This was a no-brainer for the top upset and led to Warner being our wrestler of the week. Iowa has good problems on its hands about some freshmen who might want their redshirts pulled.
