Preview & Predictions: #3 Oklahoma State (12-0) vs #12 South Dakota State (11-2)

Watch Live: ESPN+, February 10th 6PM CT 

After taking out the top two teams in the Big 12 the Cowboys are looking to slow down the SDSU Jackrabbits. A team also undefeated in the conference, SDSU wrestles Oklahoma the day before heading to Stillwater. The team has a solid mix of young greatly improved wrestlers and some ranked veterans that could make this match extremely interesting. The Cowboys have done a good job of winning tossups, tight matches, and some upsets to get where they are and will be looking to continue their dominant season here. 

125: #11 Troy Spratley (17-4) vs #15 Tanner Jordan (19-5)

This is an intriguing matchup as Jordan beat Spratley in a wild 9-8 match at Cliff Keen Invitational. That match saw Spratley get the first takedown but give up four nearfall and a reversal before countering with a reversal and nearfall of his own. Jordan has continued his strong season and just beat Jore Volk of Wyoming. He’s long for the weight, tough on the mat, and a good scrambler. Spratley has been on a heater of his own though, so I think he ends up getting this one that could give him the top seed at Big 12’s. Prediction: Spratley Dec. Jordan (OKST 3 SDSU 0)

133: #3 Daton Fix (10-0) vs #16 Derrick Cardinal (18-4)

Last year Cardinal was 11-15 as the starter and missed out on qualifying as a redshirt freshman. He made a big jump this season and has put himself into a solid middle tier at 133. Last year Fix majored him 11-1 and while I think Cardinal is greatly improved, I think Fix could repeat the result…
