Josh Liddle (Iowa), 9-2 Summary: In a dual between regular in-state rivals, Iowa claimed three forfeits and won the meet, while Iowa State won five of the seven matches actually held. Iowa lightweight stars Eric Juergens (133) and Doug Schwab (141) won their bouts. Iowa State captured the final five actual matches, although Iowa had non-starters Matt Anderson and Tyler Nixt in the lineup. Cael Sanderson's 25-9 technical fall over Jessman Smith showed his continued dominance. This match is no indication of what their dual would look like back home in Iowa. 5th place - Michigan 19, Oklahoma 19 (Michigan wins tiebreaker) 125 - No. 13 Bo Maynes (Oklahoma) dec. No. 3 A.J.

Michigan's No. 1 Otto Olson was pinned by Michael Barger at 174. Oklahoma's No. 6 Robbie Waller was pinned by Charles Martelli. Oklahoma's best wrestler Michael Lightner did not compete at 141 pounds. Michigan was able to gain a tie with three victories in the heavy weights, and the tiebreaker went down to the ninth criterion, most reversals. 7th place - Lehigh 28, Penn State 6 125 -Terrance Clendenin (Lehigh)dec, Josh Moore (Penn State), 7-0 133 -Marat Tomaev (Penn State) maj. dec.

Dave Heckard (Penn State), 12-4 Hwt - No. 14 Shawn Laughlin (Lehigh) dec. Bob Jones (Penn State), 5-2 Summary: Penn State upset Lehigh a week ago, and Lehigh bounced back to dominate the dual this time around. Lehigh won eight of the 10 matches, including a technical fall by Dave Esposito (149) and major decisions from Chris Vitale (165) and Jon Trenge (197). Lehigh's performance this weekend turns around a challenging few weeks, and puts the Mountain Hawks back among the elite teams in the nation.
