(7) Oklahoma State v. Stanford


New member
Today (Sunday), we host Stanford at 2:00 in GIA. Should be on ESPN+ if you arent able to get away from Super Bowl prep. Shoudl be an easy win for us, as Stanford i son the edge of the top 25, but as always, there are a few interesting matchups where we could get some big wins.

125: Reece Witcraft (16-6) v. (28) Nico Provo (16-6). Reece has the opportunity to pick up another ranked win here and if he does, I expect him to start appearing in some of the rankings next week. He has been wrestling well, and I do expect a win here. OSU 3-0

133: (2) Daton Fix (19-0) v. (28) Jackson DiSario (15-8). Honestly, if Fix doesn't get the pin here, I will be disappointed. Disario held on for a 7-3 loss when tehy wrestled a year and a half ago, but he has been majored and tech falled against 2 other excellent guys this year. Fix needs to start really putting it on these guys. OSU 9-0

141: (15) Carter Young (11-9) v. Jason Miranda (13-7): Young's losses have mainly been to top guys as 141 is really wide open and has lots of really good wrestlers. Miranda isnt one of those. Win by decision, but I dont think it will be close. OSU 12-0

149: (21) Victor Voinovich (13-6) v. (11) Jaden Abas (19-4): Vic has a chance to make a statement, but Abas is really good. He was an all american in 2021 and has been wrestling well, especially against guys like Vic. On the ohter hand Vic has the talent to pull off the upset. Im calling this one 4-5 Abas in a heart breaker. OSU 12-3

157: (10) Kaden Gfeller 155) v. (26) Charlie Darracott (18-8): G is higher ranked but Darracott beath him in OT earlier this year, 2-3. I think G pulls this one out and gets his revenge. OSU 15-3

165: (25) Wyatt Sheets (12-9) v. (3) Shane Griffith (20-1): Sheets has the upset over Tanner Cook in Friday, but Griffith is a whole other animal. He's finished 2nd and 1st in the last two NCAA's and if Sheets can keep from giving up bonus points, it'll be a win. Griffith by 7. OSU 15-6

174: (9) Dustin Plott (16-3) v. (27) Tyler Eischens (19-5): this is one that Plott should easily win, but he's lost his last two matches to guys ranked around 10. I think he pulls this one out, but it'll be closer than it should be, lie kit was the only other time they faced, a Plott win (7-6). 7-5. OSU 18-6

184: (10 Travis Wittlake (14-3) v. Brook Byers (12-6). Wittlake should win this one pretty easily and hopefully pick us a bonus point. 13-3. OSU 22-6

197: (16) Luke Surber (15-6) v, (28) Nick Stemmet (18-5): Surber majored Stemmet 13-5, 6 weeks ago and I see another big win, but not quite a major. 10-3. OSU 25-6

HWT: (23) Konner Doucet (13-7) v. Peter Ming (13-9): Doucet Majored Ming. I don't think he does that here, let's call it 7-3. OSU 28-6.
