#5 Michigan Wrestling traveled to MSU tonight for the first B1G road dual in the Sean Bormet era.
Michigan has dominated this rivalry, winning 8 straight including a historic 36-point beatdown last season at Cliff Keen Arena.
Not much different today. MSU got out to a 4-0 lead to start after a win at 125 by one of their only ranked wrestlers, Rayvon Foley. Foley did not face Michigan's ranked 125er Drew Mattin (#16) tonight, instead facing Austin Assad.
Michigan took over from there, winning 6 straight matches and 8 of the 10 overall in the dual. These included a pin in 41 seconds by #1 133lb Stevan Micic and three consecutive major decision wins by Ben Lamanthia, Alec Pantaleo and Logan Massa.
