What Stands Out: Iowa State
My match to watch this week was Iowa State-Wyoming and Iowa State absolutely demolished Wyoming on Friday at Wyoming. In fact, with the exception of their one loss to Iowa earlier in the season, they've picked apart everyone they've faced this season.

If they can keep progressing and improving, they could contend for the Big 12 title this season. At the moment, it looks like they may have already overtaken Missouri for the #2 spot in the conference. Their January 30th trip to Stillwater is looking a lot more interesting than I would have projected preseason.

Best Dual: North Dakota State over Wyoming

Big program win for North Dakota State to take out Wyoming here. Sparked by Owen Pentz's upset win over Stephen Buchanan at 197, the Bison knocked off Wyoming 22-14. North Dakota State is now 6-1 this season with their only loss coming to Missouri.
