When the Illinois natives meet on the mat, you can expect two things. An exciting match and plenty of points. Now imagine what it will look like when there's $20,000 on the line.

Both being from the Land of Lincoln, there could have been previous meetings, but we are going to focus on their matchups from college and on. The first of those matchups came in the 2016 Midlands quarterfinals and it was the lowest-scoring match the duo has wrestled to this date with Jackson coming out on top, 3-1.

However, it wouldn't be the first time the two would meet in the tournament. In the third-place bout, the two opened up and it was Sammy Brooks coming away with a 10-5 win.  

Just a few months later, they would square off again in the semifinals of the Big Ten Championships where they would combine for 19 points as Brooks would come out on top on his way to winning his second consecutive Big Ten title.

It would be two years before they would meet again and for the second time in their careers, they would meet in the same tournament twice. The first of those two matchups came on the front side at the 2019 U.S. Open in the round of 16 and it was the most one-sided match in the series with Brooks winning by tech fall.
