News And Notes From Week 3 In D1 Wrestling

A smattering of interesting tidbits and match results from the world that is Division 1 college wrestling, in particular things that may not have made it into our articles on top upsets or the stock report.

Oklahoma State Puts It On Minnesota

I'm not sure how many Cowboys knew they were wrestling for John Smith's 400th career victory, but they sure made a statement in their 30-3 shellacking of the Gophers. Save for an Ethan Lizak riding time point, Okie State won all the close battles and reminded everyone that they are pretty firmly in the trophy hunt once again.

Austin DeSanto Is In Better Shape Than You

How do you follow up eight takedowns in the first period? With five takedowns in the second period.



Drew Mattin's Redshirt Gets Pulled

This would seem to confirm that Austin Assad is done for the year. While there is still one more high profile 125 redshirt that could still yet be pulled, Mattin could figure into Michigan's shot at a team trophy. Though he lost to Darian Cruz, the defending NCAA champ currently ranked fifth, Mattin already has a win over All American Sean Russell.

Penn State's 197 Is Decided (Probably)

With Anthony Cassar finally looking healthy, and knocking off not only Matt McCutcheon but also Frank Mattiace, it appears the Nittany Lions have their situation at light heavyweight figured out.

Brady Ayers Stages Epic Comeback

By "epic comeback," I mean that Ayers scored two takedowns and forced a stall call in the final 45 seconds of the match.



New And Improved Iowa City Duals

In years past, Iowa used this weekend like a Top-25 football team uses their early schedule: to beat up on teams from a lower division. Though the scoreboard still showed big victories for the Hawkeyes, here's hoping they stick with D1 competition moving forward, particularly as their young guns filter into the lineup.

Boo Lewallen Keeps Winning Tournaments

Lewallen's latest victims were Grant Leeth and Jarrett Degen to take home the Lindenwood Open title. This Oklahoma State situation at 149 isn't going to be easy to decide once the second semester starts.

Barlow McGhee Might Be Back

While his Lindenwood opponents weren't world beating all stars, the Mizzou senior beat four solid opponents in what might have been his most consistent performance since his first or second year on campus.
