With Minnesota leading 15-14 in the team score, Oklahoma State fielded two-time NCAA heavyweight champion Steve Mocco, riding an 85-match winning streak. He faced his latest nemesis, Minnesota's Cole Konrad, who had beaten Mocco in a non-NCAA match at the NWCA All-Star Classic in November.
With the score, predictably enough, 1-1 in the third period, Konrad hit an inside trip to throw Mocco to his back. There, at 5:26, and certainly unpredictably, Konrad scored a pin on Mocco, giving Minnesota the upset win and Konrad the tournament's outstanding wrestler award.
A recorded telecast of the National Duals' finals between Oklahoma State and Minnesota will be shown on CSTV this Thurs., Jan. 19, beginning at 8:00 PM ET. CSTV will also be showing a lot of college wrestling in the coming weeks, so check your listings to make sure to catch it all.
