A Heavy Upset in College Wrestling 

So you like heavyweights? Well, they rocked the world of college wrestling this Sunday in the finals of the NWCA/Cliff Keen National Duals, held at the UNI Dome in Cedar Falls, Iowa. There the tournament's team championship between the undefeated and top-ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys, the NCAA champions for the past three seasons, and the Golden Gophers, the NCAA champions the two previous years, came down to the final match between their heavyweights.

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.
