Cliff Keen Las Vegas Projected Team Scores

The Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational released its pre-seeds earlier today, which can be found in their entirety right here. So what does that mean for the team race? 

Well, we can calculate hypothetical team scores the same way we do for the NCAA national team rankings and project what the final tournament team scores will look like on Saturday. And so after a little spreadsheet plug-and-chug, our team race shakes out as follows.

Michigan117.5
Ohio State105.5
Arizona State87
Minnesota70.5
Nebraska62.5
Virginia Tech61
Northern Iowa53.5
Central Michigan36.5
North Carolina31.5

Brown8.5
Northern Colorado7.5
Utah Valley7
Bucknell6.5
Iowa State6
Eastern Michigan5.5
Binghamton5.5
Kent State2
Drexel2
Army West Point2
Harvard1.5


Only 165 pounds got a full set of 16 pre-seeds, so expect more points to be scored then the sum of everything you see here. 

We will release a more detailed analysis soon, but for now, it looks like Ohio State and Michigan will be in a dog fight for the CKLV team trophy. Those two teams plus 36 other schools showing up to the Las Vegas Convention Center with at least one ranked wrestler will make for an epic college tournament you wouldn't dare miss!
