1) Stephen Buchanan Has A Massive Opportunity

Wyoming's Stephen Buchanan is already up to #14 in the rankings, and he has two big challenges this weekend in #9 Kordell Norfleet and #1 Noah Adams. Buchanan has yet to face Norfleet, and is 0-2 against Adams.

Despite his losses to Adams, Wyoming fans have reason to be optimistic about Buchanan's chances with the nation's top ranked 197-pounder. His first meeting with Adams was a 9-8 decision in last year's dual, and his second meeting was a 7-4 decision at the Big 12 Championships.

2) Can Trey Munoz Make Another Statement?

Arizona State freshman Trey Munoz has wrestled just one match this year, but it was an impressive 8-3 decision over Anthony Mantanona of Oklahoma who was ranked #6 at the time.

Munoz will have another big test this week in #9 Hayden Hastings of Wyoming. If Munoz wins that bout to move to 2-0, he'll be looking like a serious All-American contender for the Sun Devils this year.

3) #14 Andrews Gets Another Crack at #13 Schultz

Sun Devil fans have known for a long time that Cohlton Schultz could be a difference maker at heavyweight, but he hadn't had a chance to get into the rankings until a couple weeks ago when he knocked off Wyoming's Brian Andrews.

Now, the 2020 Big 12 champ will be looking for an opportunity to get back on top in the series. The last meeting between these two wasn't settled until overtime, and Saturday's contest is likely to be just as competitive.

4) Teemer Looks to Bounce Back vs #20 Wright

In this bizarre season, matches have been hard to come by. Jacori Teemer has only been able to compete twice and hasn't had a match since January 8. He lost that bout to Oklahoma's #12 Justin Thomas and will look to get back to his winning ways this weekend.

He'll have his hands full with Wyoming's #20 Jacob Wright, a Junior, Fresno State transfer who's four match winning streak includes two falls. These two have yet to square off in college, and their match is one to circle on Saturday.
