133: Tariq'ing Havoc

NC State freshman Tariq Wilson upset ACC rival Jack Mueller of Virginia and jumps up from all the way outside the top 20 to #12. Wilson's only losses on the season are to #3 Kaid Brock, #5 Montorie Bridges, and twice to teammate Jamel Morris. The win over the eighth-ranked Mueller vaults Wilson into the dirty dozen, with only those losses to Morris keeping him from debuting even higher.

Sean Nickell's defeat of Ali Naser earns him a ranking and pushes out Northern Colorado's Rico Montoya. Meanwhile, Iowa State's Ian Parker bumps up to 141 and wreaks some havoc of his own in that weight class.
