    #13 South Dakota State Upsets #9 Michigan

    Earlier this week, South Dakota State officially had ten wrestlers in the national rankings for the first time. On Thursday night, those ten wrestlers took down the ninth-ranked University of Michigan team that got a pair of big wins from true freshmen and saw Austin Gomez make his debut in the maize and blue. 

    The Jackrabbits got bonus point wins from Derrick Cardinal (133 lbs), Cael Swensen (157 lbs), and Tanner Sloan (197 lbs). Another wrestler who got bonus was redshirt freshman #26 Bennett Berge who downed #12 Jaden Bullock, 14-5. 

    In the most anticipated bout of the evening, Michigan’s Shane Griffith handed Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational champion Cade DeVos his first loss of the season with a takedown in sudden victory overtime. 

    South Dakota State is back in action next week at the Virginia Duals, while Michigan will open up its Big Ten slate with duals against Maryland and Michigan State.
