The big test for this team will come in the nest two matches against OSU (25 January) and PSU (1 February). They are not favored in either match, as these are the two national powerhouses in wrestling. But it will be a good measuring stick and provide some of the wrestlers a good opportunity to make their case for a higher seed come tournament time.
This program has a bright future and is definitely worth keeping an eye on.
