Weekend Upsets with WrestleStat – Week 4 2016-2017

This is the second installment of the Weekend Upsets segment. There’s a very small list of upsets this week because of the holiday weekend, and not as much action going on (just wait until next weekend!).

There are 6 upsets that fall on this list, but there’s 1 that I personally don’t consider to be all that much of an upset.

In my opinion, the biggest upset of the weekend came from #43 James Benjamin of Buffalo beating #5 Brett Harner of Princeton in sudden victory in their dual. Benjamin should see a decent boost in his ranking that comes out tomorrow as a result of this win.

The one match that wasn’t all that surprising to me was Cornell’s #52 Mark Grey beating #13 Tyson Dippery of Rutgers. I don’t know why, but I’ve always felt Grey was a top 20 kid (I guess his redshirt season is still stuck in my head). You have to wonder if the move up to 141 his junior season is the reason why he’s still ranked as low as he is. I see him continuing to rise through the season to end up in the top 20 again.
