What I'm Most Excited For: Wyoming vs. Oklahoma State. Wyoming has always been a difficult place for OSU to go and wrestle. I don't know if it's the elevation up there, the fact that Mark Branch knows the OSU program so well, or what? But they almost always wrestle Oklahoma State really well.

AJ Ferrari vs. Stephen Buchanan tops my list of matches for the entire weekend. This is a rematch of the Big 12 finals from last year. Ferrari is the defending NCAA and Big 12 champion, Buchanan is an All-American and won the Cliff Keen Invite this year, which was absolutely loaded at 197. This should be a very good match.
157, 174, 184, and a few other weights should be great matches also.
