What I'm Most Excited For: Friday night! If you're a Big 12 wrestling fan, park yourself in front of a computer, TV, your phone, whatever and soak it all in. By the time you get home from work on Friday you'll have as many as seven duals going on at once.

Best Dual: Oklahoma at Arizona State

OU has had a great start to this season. They wrestled really well at the Michigan State Open then went on to dominate West Virginia on the road at West Virginia.

Now comes Arizona State

Up and down the line there are great matchups here. Newcomer Joey Prata takes on Arizona State's Brandon Courtney at 125, Anthony Madrigal and Michael McGee at 133, Mitch Moore and Kyle Parco at 149, Jake Woodley and Kordell Norfleet at 197 and much, much more. Arizona State will be favored, but wins in a few of the toss-ups could flip things to the Sooners side. This sets up to potentially be a really great dual.
