If this schedule holds up (Unfortunately, we know it won't due to a rash of cancellations from COVID), this is another solid slate of duals for the Big 12 this week.
Most Unique Storyline: OU vs. Missouri
The "newest" Big 12 program taking on the defending conference champions. On paper this is the toughest in conference matchup for Missouri so far this season, but Missouri has a slight edge in the rankings at most weights. OU is competitive at every single weight, so this could get interesting if they can pull a few upsets.
My Dual to Watch: North Dakota State at Iowa State
I wrote in my recap for last week that I think Iowa State is starting to emerge as a conference title contender. They're right up there with OSU and Missouri and could continue to climb as we move forward in the season. They have a solid test here though. North Dakota State and Iowa State are both one loss teams and North Dakota State will provide a test for the rising Cyclone squad ahead of their dual with Oklahoma State next week.
