197: #6 Nathan Traxler (Stanford) over #21 Tanner Orndorff (Utah Valley) (Dec 10-8)

Trailing 7-1 going into the third period, Tanner Orndorff nearly completed the comeback in a wild 19-point shootout with Nathan Traxler.

133: Reece Witcraft (Oklahoma State) dec #16 Todd Small (Iowa State), 9-8

Back and forth the entire time with plenty of upper body exchanges, Witcraft and Small took turns throwing the kitchen sink at one another and left nothing on the mat.

184: Jack Jessen (Northwestern) dec #13 Jelani Embree (Michigan), 7-6

Jack Jessen was a blue-chip recruit coming out of high school, but has been a little up and down and didn't really have a ranked or marquee win. That changed Friday night.

Taylor Venz was riding high coming off a win over Aaron Brooks Friday night looking to keep his momentum rolling, but Cam Caffey had other plans. Trailing 5-1 entering the third period, Caffey exploded for 10 points to get the big-time win.

157: #22 Jake Tucker (Michigan State) dec #25 Peyton Robb (Nebraska), 7-5

Peyton Robb was another Cornhusker coming off a big win in the Penn State dual Friday night. Like Venz, he was not able to carry that momentum over to Sunday as Jake Tucker scored a takedown in the final minute to force overtime and then got it down in sudden victory.

174: Joe Smith (Oklahoma State) dec #11 Sam Colbray (Iowa State), 5-2

On Saturday night, Joe Smith returned to the mat for the first time since January 1 and looked like a shell of himself as he was majored by Bryce Steiert. Less than 24 hours later, Smith looked like a completely different wrestler. The former All-American was aggressive the entire seven minutes and even scored two takedowns in the third period.
