Right now it's all talk on social media, but could we see #1 Seth Gross take on #1 Bryce Meredith this week?
Wyoming is making a trip to Brookings, SD, on Thursday to face South Dakota State in a huge Big 12 dual meet live on FloWrestling at 7 PM CT. And in the midst of the dual is the potential for a matchup of two #1-ranked wrestlers in the 133-pound Gross, an SDSU junior, and the 141-pound Meredith, a UW senior.
Meredith was the first to broach the subject of matching up with Gross in a Twitter post on Monday.

Before Gross made the move down to 133 pounds, he and Meredith split matches at 141 in 2016. First, Meredith edged Gross 5-4 in his home gym [watch Meredith defeat Gross here]. Then Gross claimed some revenge with an 8-3 win in the semifinals of the Big 12 tournament.
Watch Gross defeat Meredith at 2016 Big 12s.
It's been a while since they met, and they both have showed incredible improvement. Should it happen, expect this one to have great scrambling and a great deal of action from both guys. If Jackrabbits coach Chris Bono decides not to move Gross up to 141 to face Meredith, Gross would take on #5 Montorie Bridges at 133.
Could happen Thursday night. Lets see if the fans want it... who wants to see @GodsWrestler133 vs @bmeredith001 go at it Thursday night when @GoJacksWrestle wrestles @WyoWrestle Two #1’s two different weight classes...#getjacked #11thman @CPyles8 @WillieAtFLO @FloWrestling https://t.co/NxHpxrSHRS— Chris Bono (@ChrisBono) January 16, 2018
