Week 8 of NCAA wrestling only had a handful of duals, so the upsets were fewer than normal, but four of the six upsets we did see came against wrestlers ranked in the top ten. Here are all the upsets we could find. If you saw an upset we missed, email david.bray@flosports.tv or send a dm to @_davidbray on Twitter.

125

Pat McKee bounced back from his loss to Eric Barnett with an upset win over #8 Michael DeAugustino. McKee needed a dramatic cradle late to pick up the victory. The seeds at 125 in the Big Ten will be a mess.

#12 Patrick Mckee, Minnesota D;9-6 #8 Michael DeAugustino, Northwestern

149

Both Peyton Omania and Michael Blockhus had top ten upsets taking out Kanen Storr and Yahya Thomas respectively. Omania's headlock fest was outstanding.

Peyton Omania, Michigan State D;15-8 #7 Kanen Storr, Michigan

#22 Michael Blockhus, Minnesota D;3-2 #9 Yahya Thomas, Northwestern

174

Starocci had a massive upset for the second week in a row, this time over #3 Kaleb Romero, and Anthony Mantanona got back on track by knocking off Dustin Plott. We could see these matches again at the Big Ten and Big 12 Championships next weekend.

#5 Carter Starocci, Penn State D;2-1 #3 Kaleb Romero, Ohio State

Anthony Mantanona, Oklahoma D;7-4 #14 Dustin Plott, Oklahoma State

184

Not only did Taylor Venz upset #11 Zach Braunagel, he majored him 12-1. 184 lbs in the Big Ten has been a wild weight to rank all year, and this weekends result didn't add much clarity for the seeding committee.

#17 Taylor Venz, Nebraska M;12-1 #11 Zach Braunagel, Illinois
