With 16 D1 duals this past week on FloWrestling, we were undoubtedly going to see some fire matches. This list could have been 40 matches long, but after carefully combing through every dual I have compiled the indisputable 10 best matches wrestled on Flo last week.

Todd Small, Iowa State dec Taylor Lamont, Utah Valley, 13-12

This one went down on Thursday night and was bananas from start to finish. When the dust finally settled there were 25 points on the board and the lead changed for the final time with just three seconds remaining.

133 - Todd Small vs Taylor Lamont

Gary Traub, Ohio State dec Matt Correnti, Rutgers, 4-2 SV-2

Gas. Tank. Freaking. Gary. There's something about this guy that Ohio State fans, and quite frankly myself, can't get enough of. If you really can't spend 17 minutes of your life watching this match (your mistake) skip to the 15:45 mark and watch Traub blow the roof off the Covelli Center.

Brian Andrews, Wyoming FALL Brandon Metz, NDSU, 0:53

Two straight heavyweight matches? You're damn straight. Brandon Metz is the definition of a home run hitter. From the Southern Scuffle on, Metz has wrestled eight matches and four of them have ended in falls. This was over in under a minute and the wrestler who won picked up the fall while using no hands.

Taylor Lujan, UNI dec Dylan Wisman, Missouri, 13-8

For four straight years, Taylor Lujan has been must-watch every time he steps on the mat. This match was no different. Lujan did surrender the first takedown but rolled from there. This one had nonstop action and much of it was spent scrambling.

Lucas Davison, Northwestern dec Shakur Rasheed, Penn State, 7-5

Shakur Rashed made his return to the Penn State lineup on Friday night and snuck by Illinois' Matt Wroblewski. On Sunday, the red-hot Lucas Davison, fresh off a win over #2 Christian Brunner, came to town and stunned the All-American in his home gym in a really fun match.

Michael Kemerer, Iowa dec Jacob Covaciu, Indiana, 9-6

Michael Kemerer came into this match 4-0 on the year with four bonus-point wins. Early on, it appeared that Kemerer was on his way to another bonus-point, but Covaciu had other plans. The Hoosier tied the match with a minute remaining and had Hawkeye fans nervous for a brief moment.

Tristan Moran, Wisconsin dec Chad Red, Nebraska, 11-4

With 30 seconds to go in the second period, Tristan Moran trailed 3-0 and Chad Red had over two minutes of riding time. Moran would go on to win, 11-4. On Friday night, Moran beat #2 Mitch McKee, 7-6.

Brock Mauller, Missouri dec Max Thomsen, UNI, 3-1

For the second consecutive meeting between these two, sudden victory was needed. It may have only been 3-1, but it wasn't due to lack of effort from either wrestler. This one was full of incredible scrambles.

Evan Wick, Wisconsin dec Isaiah White, Nebraska, 10-6

For wrestlers who have met so many times (this was the sixth meeting), one would expect a hard-fought low scoring match. These two had other plans though as they hung a combined 16 points on the board.

Abe Assad, Iowa dec Jakob Hinz, Indiana, 6-2

After Iowa won another Midlands Championships, Tom Brands said the Hawkeyes had three good options at 184. Many were surprised that he thought of the true freshmen Assad as an option. We were even more surprised when he ripped Assad's redshirt off against Indiana Friday night. Full disclosure, this isn't the most exciting match in the world, but I'm always interested to see how wrestlers having their redshirts pulled look in their debut matches.

The barbell curl is one of the most basic weightlifting exercises but in my opinion also one of the most useful accessory lifts for wrestlers.

Singular success in sports is hard enough as it is; prolonged success and maintaining dominance seems downright impossible. Yet that's exactly what Penn State has done for a decade, the gold standard of winning in the current NCAA landscape.

PIAA: Does AAA Crush AA At Producing NCAA Talent?

The debate has raged as long as there have been separate classes in Pennsylvania, AA or AAA? The answer is clear that AAA is the superior division, but you need to have perspective about the true differences. The notion that AA is a “JV” division is laughable.

This time a year ago few, including myself, believed anyone could touch Penn State at the 2020 NCAA Championships. However, by Thanksgiving, the Hawkeyes had overtaken the Nittany Lions and never looked back. Iowa put together a perfect dual campaign, broke the Midlands scoring record, and won the Big Ten Tournament by 25 points. However, due to the cancellation of the NCAA Championships, Iowa was more than likely denied their first NCAA title since 2010.

If you have never seen the benefits of far ankle defense, you may not have been paying very close attention to wrestling in the last 20 years, because the trend probably goes back that far, maybe even further.
