    Duke: The Blue Devils head a couple hours north to face Franklin & Marshall and VMI in Lexington, VA on Sunday. #21 Jonah Neisenbaum will look to add to his 9-1 start with matches against Josh Evans (VMI) and Franklin & Marshall.

    North Carolina: The Tar Heels are off this week and will return to action on 12/15 against Appalachian State.

    North Carolina State: The Wolfpack shift to tournament mode as they head to Vegas for the CKLV. They send a full lineup with one minor change from what we have seen in duals thus far. Alex Faison will get the nod at 174 as they continue to determine the starter for the weight.

    #29 Jarrett Trombley--9 Seed at 125
    #24 Kai Orine--11 seed at 133
    #14 Ryan Jack--4 seed at 141
    #22 Jackson Arrington--7 seed at 149
    #9 Ed Scott--4 seed at 157
    Donald Cates--165
    Alex Faison--174
    #3 Trent Hidlay--2 seed at 184
    #14 Isaac Trumble--2 seed at 197
    #19 Owen Trephan--10 seed at 285

    #21 Pittsburgh: The Panthers travel to Illinois for a Saturday showdown with the #27 Illini. There will be a few big matches between ranked wrestlers and several toss-up matches of pretty evenly paired wrestlers. This has the potential to be a very entertaining dual.

    Big matches to keep an eye on:

    125: Colton Camacho v #24 Justin Cardani
    133: #11 Micky Phillippi v #6 Lucas Byrd
    165: #14 Holden Heller v #19 Danny Braunagel
    174: #33 Luca Augustine v #10 Edmond Ruth
    197: #8 Nino Bonaccorsi v #15 Zac Braunagel

    Virginia: The Hoos travel to North Carolina for a pair of duals against Queens and Campbell. UVA is heavily favored over Queens, a program making their transition into D1 competition. The dual against Campbell last year was excellent, and I expect another good one in Buies Creek. Looking through the lineups, there should be some fun matchups in this one.

    133: Erik Roggie v #28 Gabe Hixenbaugh
    141: Dylan Cedeno v Shannon Hanna
    149: #29 Jarod Verkleeren v Callum Sitek
    157: #26 Jake Keating v #33 Troy Nation
    165: #9 Justin McCoy v Riley Augustine
    184: #30 Neil Antrassian v #18 Caleb Hopkins
    285: Gabe Christenson v #13 Taye Ghadiali

    Virginia Tech: The Hokies will also head west to compete in the CKLV. Virginia Tech will have a limited roster for the CKLV, but will have some heavy hitters in the lineup. Here are the Hokies making the trip:

    #16 Eddie Ventresca--5 seed at 125
    #9 Sam Latona--5 seed at 133
    #13 Tom Crook--3 seed at 141
    Drew Nicholson--165
    #2 Mekhi Lewis--1 seed at 174
    #9 Hunter Bolen--6 seed at 184
    #32 Andy Smith--9 seed at197
