PREDICTIONS: #21 Oklahoma (2-2) vs Maryland (3-3)

#21 Oklahoma (2-2) vs Maryland (3-3)

In OU’s last match of the Virginia Duals, they’ll get unranked Maryland. Similar to Virginia, the overall team strength is low, but features some strong individual wrestlers. A rebuilding team, Maryland has quite a few quality wrestlers in redshirts this year. Maryland has four wrestlers that are below 0.500 and three ranked wrestlers. I like OU’s chances to win this round robin, but they do risk dropping some ranked matches. With no tournaments on their schedule, this is a good opportunity for OU to get some adversity and multiple matches over two days. 

125lbs: #23 Joey Prata (6-2) vs Zach Spence (0-10)

Prata gets Spence, who is not only winless this season, but has a 2-27 career record. Prata should get the win and bonus is likely as well. Spence has lost by bonus seven times this season already. I’ll take Prata getting a major, as he is not the biggest bonus wrestler. 

Prediction: Prata Maj. Spence 10-2 (OU 4 MD 0)
