NC State defeats Nebraska to improve to 21-0

LINCOLN, Neb. -- The No. 3 NC State wrestling team gutted out a 19-15 road win at No. 8 Nebraska Saturday night, improving the Wolfpack to a perfect 21-0 on the season. The win was also the seventh versus a ranked opponent this season - including road wins now at No. 4 Oklahoma State (19-15) and tonight at No. 11 Nebraska.

With the score tied 12-12 with three bouts left, NC State got a major decision at 157 pounds and the win at 165 pounds clinched the dual going into the final match.

"Overall, tonight was an outstanding team effort," said head coach Pat Popolizio. "Once again, the team stepped up to the challenge. We showed a lot of physical and mental toughness tonight in getting this road win.

"Sean Fausz's win (at 125 pounds) over a highly ranked wrestler really made the difference tonight. I am very proud of the focus and determination he showed. He has put himself in position to finish on a high note as we start to focus in on our last two duals and the postseason."

Nebraska claimed victories in the first two bouts, winning close bouts at 184 and 197 pounds.

The Pack got on the scoreboard at 285 pounds with an injury default in favor of No. 1 Nick Gwiazdowski. Just 58 seconds into the bout, Nebraska's No. 18 Collin Jensen went down with a knee injury and the Pack was awarded six points and tied the dual after three matches.

Redshirt freshman Sean Fausz followed up with the top upset for the Pack of the night, as he downed No. 9 Tim Lambert 5-4. After Fausz rode Lambert the entire second period, he scored a reversal, and with the ride time point clinched the bout. The win was his third against a ranked foe this year, and his first career versus a top-10 opponent. The Pack took its first lead at 9-6.

Nebraska tied it up with a decision at 133, but the Pack won three of the next four matches and clinched the dual victory going into the final bout.

The Pack's decisive stretch started with No. 3 Kevin Jack picking up his 12th straight win and defeating No. 19 Anthony Abidin, 7-1, being the aggressor throughout at 141 pounds and put the Pack ahead 12-9.

Nebraska tied it once again after a decision at 149 pounds made the score 12-12 with three matches left.

NC State won the next two, and clinched the road victory with a pair of wins over ranked foes. No. 5 Tommy Gantt scored an 11-3 major decision at 157 pounds, and remained undefeated improving to 19-0. Up 8-3 late, Gantt scored a takedown with five seconds left and the ride time point gave Gantt the bonus point win over No. 19 Tyler Berger.

No. 4 Max Rohskopf clinched the victory for the Pack with his 4-1 win over No. 14 Austin Wilson at 165 pounds. After a scoreless first, Rohskopf started the second on top and scored a two-point near-fall and added an escape and stall in the third for the win. With the win, Rohskopf improves to a perfect 11-0 at 165 pounds this season, his lone loss was when he wrestled up at Oklahoma State.

The wins by Gantt and Rohskopf gave the Pack a 19-12 lead going into the final bout.
