    The college wrestling season is right around the corner. This year, in particular, it seems like there are some solid early-season dual matches between top teams. The following looks at the top duals in the month of November and some potential individual bouts that could make the duals special.

    11/5/2022 No. 13 Iowa State vs. No. 10 Wisconsin

    The inaugural Battle in the River City event will bring several top dual matches to the early season schedule. The event, which features Iowa State, Wisconsin, Chattanooga, Campbell, Little Rock and Buffalo, will be a one-date round-robin series of duals with each team getting three matches.

    Headlining the Jacksonville event will be a dual between Iowa State and Wisconsin. The Cyclones return to action after a very impressive dual campaign in 2022. The squad went 15-1 with victories over Northern Iowa, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. Their only blemish on the season was an 11-point loss to Iowa in the annual Cy-Hawk match.

    The Badgers were also a strong dual team in 2022. Wisconsin went 12-2 and picked up wins over the likes of North Carolina, Rutgers, Minnesota and Cornell.

    The dual could feature a pair of bouts that could have a major impact on the rankings. After winning an NCAA title at 157 pounds in 2021, No. 3 David Carr finished third at last season's tournament. He is expected to move up 165 pounds this year. That sets up a potential match against No. 6 Dean Hamiti. As a true freshman last season, Hamiti went 28-4 and finished sixth at the NCAA tournament.
