    #11 Virginia Tech at #8 Cornell Preview

    The #11 Hokies are coming off a tough loss to #3 Missouri; the matches were split 5/5, but bonus points went in favor of the Tigers to give them the dual win. It was highlighted by wins from #9 Cooper Flynn over #2 Noah Surtin and #8 Bryce Andonian over #5 Brock Mauller in a thrilling back and forth match. The Hokies will look to rebound in another tough road test, facing #8 Cornell in Ithaca. 

    The Big Red traveled to Blacksburg last year for a dual at the Moss Arts Center that was highlighted by a huge win from Sam Latona over Vito Arujau; unfortunately, it doesn’t sound like we will see that rematch today. 

    There are some very fun matchups on deck for the day, though, including a rematch of CKLV between #8 Bryce Andonian and #15 Meyer Shapiro. This dual has the potential for fireworks, and they always pack a great crowd into the Friedman Wrestling Center. I like the way the dual lines up for the Hokies, but they are going to have to take care of business in front of a hostile Ivy League crowd to take the win back home.
