As was the theme last weekend, points and pins were the story of this weekend in D1 wrestling. Three matches on the list total at least 20 points, another two totaled at least 13, and three other matches ended with a fall. Just a reminder, this list is made up of matches that were live only on FloWrestling. 

#25 Tanner Cook (SDSU) dec Adam Kemp (Fresno State), 18-12

Since I started doing this article weekly last month, no wrestler has appeared in it more than Tanner Cook. This is Cook's fourth time in the article, but the first time he's made it and not picked up a fall. All he did this time was rack up 18 points in a match that would end with 30 total points on the board.

For the second week in a row, a Mountaineer makes the article after mounting a big third-period comeback. Blockhus led 8-3 at the beginning of the final period, but a six-point move from Rea helped him force overtime and give fans a couple of extra minutes of incredible wrestling.

#12 Jay Schwarm (UNI) FALL #8 Alex Mackall (Iowa State), 2:17

In the span of a week, Colbray has now knocked off #12 Anthony Mantanona and #5 Bryce Steiert, the latter of which sparked the Cyclones' come-from-behind win over in-state rival Northern Iowa.

Before the debut of his FloFilm, we all knew about Steve Mocco's illustrious career on the mat, but we didn't know a lot about him personally, his upbringing, and other ins and outs of his life like we do many other wrestlers today. He was mysterious, intimidating, but fascinating. That all changed when we dropped MOCCO dropped in the fall of 2016.
