PREVIEW: #29 Oklahoma (7-4) vs #13 Northern Iowa (4-2)

#29 Oklahoma (7-4) vs #13 Northern Iowa (4-2) – January 29th @2PM on Flowrestling

Two days after taking on top three Iowa State the Sooners stay in Iowa for another conference dual. Last year this dual came down to the wire, with a 17-15 final score that UNI won. They had two major decisions which proved to be the difference maker. This year there is likely going to be at least seven new wrestlers for OU, while UNI is bringing mostly the same lineup from last year. 

Northern Iowa will be coming off a big match against rival Oklahoma State so both teams are likely going to be feeling these matches. The Sooners struggled against Iowa State, only winning four matches. However they showed some life in those weights and have sometimes looked better after a day one match. 

125lbs: #21 Joey Prata (13-5) vs Kyle Golhoffer (5-8)

In his last three wins Prata has shown some impressive defense in not giving up any points, but struggled to separate with offense of his own. His last bonus point win against a starter came back in November. He’s never been a big bonus guy, but his inability to separate makes it a hard fight for the team. He’ll have another tough match in Golhoffer, who has mostly only lost to ranked opponents.
