Despite suffering through last weekend’s tough road trip that included losses to Brown, No. 21 Maryland, Harvard and American, Stanford’s wrestling team is excited to be back at home to host No. 25 Air Force tonight and visit No. 9 Oregon State tomorrow night for a Pac-12 dual.
Mixed results turned the Stanford wrestling team’s trip to Columbia, Mo., this past Saturday into a bittersweet visit as the Cardinal fell to 4-3 on the young season. The Cardinal picked up one in each column, yet the win against South Dakota State early on in the day was overshadowed by the crushing defeat by No. 7 Missouri.
This Sunday afternoon, Stanford men’s wrestling will take to the mat against the No. 17 Oregon State Beavers at Maples Pavilion. This dual is undoubtedly the most important of the season for both the Cardinal (8-5, 4-0 Pac-12) and the Beavers (7-2, 4-0), as the winner of this match will likely claim the Pac-12 regular season title.
Coming off two impressive home wins against Cal State Bakersfield and Menlo College this past weekend, the Cardinal wrestling team will travel to Chattanooga, Tenn. this Sunday to take on the Central Michigan Chippewas, then do battle with the Mocs from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
