Back to a lot more dual action across the sport after the layoff for the holidays. Let's dive into the Big 12 recap from last week.
Great week for WVU
WVU beats Ohio then wins the Backyard Brawl on the road at Pitt. Two big program wins for WVU to move them to 6-1 with their only dual loss coming to the defending Big 12 Champions at Mizzou. WVU has quietly put together a really good dual season with one of their biggest wins coming this week over Pitt.
Iowa State Emerging as the Top Dual Team in the Conference?
One would need to dig deeper into individual matchups and other things to sort this one out but, Missouri dropped their dual earlier this season at Arizona State, while Iowa State knocked them off 19-15. Still a lot of wrestling left before February 15th, when these two wrestle at Missouri, but Iowa State may have the edge.
