The Big 12 Conference has released the pre-seeds ahead of the Big 12 Wrestling Championship set for March 7-8 at the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Oklahoma State led the Conference with three No. 1 seeds, followed by two from Northern Iowa, while Iowa State, Oklahoma, Utah Valley, West Virginia and Wyoming had one each.

The pre-seeds were voted into their positions by the league's 12 head coaches and are subject to change. Final seeds will be confirmed at Friday's pre-championship coaches meeting.

The Cowboys' Nick Piccininni (125), Boo Lewallen (149) and Travis Wittlake (165) earned top seeds. Northern Iowa's Bryce Steiert (174) and Taylor Lujan (184) will be in the top spot in their respective weight class, while Wyoming's Montorie Bridges (133), Oklahoma's Dom Demas (141), Iowa State's David Carr (157), West Virginia's Noah Adams (197) and Utah Valley's Tate Orndorff (HWT) round out the top seeds.

Tickets for the 2020 Big 12 Wrestling Championship can be purchased online through TicketMaster.

This is the fifth consecutive year for the Big 12 Championship to be held at a neutral site as the league is the only Division I conference to host its wrestling championship away from a campus venue.

Fans can follow the first three sessions on Big 12 Now on ESPN+ while the championship session will be broadcasted by Fox Sports Regional Networks.
