It will all lead up to a thrilling final match at 184 pounds between Cornell's two-time national champion Gabe Dean and Penn State sophomore Bo Nickal, a national finalist a year ago who is arguably the most electrifying wrestler in the sport.

Zain Retherford (149 pounds), Jason Nolf (157), Vincenzo Joseph (165), Mark Hall (174), Bo Nickal (184), Matt McCutcheon (197) and Nick Nevills (285) all advanced to today's 11 a.m. quarterfinals. O-State is the only team to have all 10 wrestlers qualify for the championships, and only one of the InterMat prognosticators pick an OSU wrestler to win an individual title-Dean Heil at 141 pounds. We're wrestling great and got a lot of guys wrestling well. Saturday's final will be the biggest stage for both of them since the Olympics, and Snyder and Cox are expected to show the country why they're among the U.S.'s biggest hopes in the run-up to the 2020 Tokyo Games.

"I just want to go have fun, let it fly and don't hold anything back", Rogers said. So no disrespect to him or anybody else, but I just wrestle whomever they put out there and whomever makes it to the finals, whether that would be him or Dance (Joey Dance of Virginia Tech the No. 2 seed) or anybody else.

Cruz pushed the pace late and slipped behind the tough-talking Gilman for the winning takedown with five seconds left in the extra period.

The Spartan freshman opened Thursday's action with a 6-0 decision over Keilan Torres of Northern Colorado in the first round before losing to second-seeded Logan Massa of MI in a 25-10 technical fall at 4:47 in the second round. "When you're scoring four points it gets up there quick".

Joseph will meet two-time champion and No. 1 seeed Isaiah Martinez of IL in the final.

Penn State enters the championship ranked atop the USA Today/NWCA Coaches Poll and OSU is second.

In his first consolation match, Coleman defeated Brown (R.I.) University's Christian LaFragola 7-4.

Taapsee Pannu, shot into fame with her strong performance in Pink and her recent release The Ghazi Attack is doing well too. And so lady spies are more helpful as professionals. "So this was a challenging character to me".

Mark Hall (33-3), a No. 5 seed at 174, upset No. 1 Zahid Valencia of Arizona State, 4-3, in the semifinals.

Hall built an 8-0 first-period lead on Virginia Tech's Zach Epperly en route to a 10-2 major decision win in the quarterfinals.

"I know for a fact that it wasn't on goal". "We've got a insane tough tournament team, and I think we're just going to go out there and prove it". They really do go out of their way to create a good environment for them. Joseph, 2-0 on the day with a major, will take on No. 6 Daniel Lewis of Missouri in the quarterfinals tomorrow morning.

Ohio State redshirt junior wrestler Bo Jordan moved on in the championships bracket at the NCAA championships. At press time, with some consolation matches still ongoing, Ohio State was in second with 26.0 and Oklahoma State third with 24.0.

¯ Nickal vs. No. 7 seed T.J. Dudley of Nebraska.

¯ Nevills vs. No. 4 seed Jacob Kasper of Duke. It was Nickal's third straight pin in the tournament and it capped a ideal night for a Penn State squad that sent all five semfinalists into the finals. Barlow McGhee (19-13) lost 3-1 in OT and 4-2 at 125 while heavyweight Austin Myers (15-15) dropped 6-0 and 1-0 decisions. Hughes, the No. 15 seed at 165 pounds, lost in a 4-2 decision to fifth-seeded Chad Walsh of Rider in the consolation round.

Eric Barone (10-10) was eliminated at 149, losing by fall in the first round and 7-3 in wrestlebacks.
