NOTE: There was a bug fixed in the individual rankings process that was incorrectly calculating a wrestlers ELO rating if the wrestler was on a non-Division I roster the prior season.

We’ve got a fresh batch of rankings this week. There were a couple of significant moves this week, mainly due to the fact of fixing the bug mentioned above.
At 133, Ali Naser of Arizona State moved up 22 spots to end up at #21.
At 141, Matt Kolodzik of Princeton moved up 40 spots to finish at #12.
At 174, Mark Hall or Penn State moved up 9 spots after he continues to roll through Division I competition with just the 1 blemish on his record.
Lastly, at heavyweight, Nick Nevills, also of Penn State, moved up 16 spots to finish at #14.
Dual Rankings: http://www.wrestlestat.com/rankings/dual
Penn State moves up 1 spot to take the top position this week. As was mentioned in The Open Mat’s article this week, they continue to show their dominance bonusing their opponents to an undefeated record on the season.
Oklahoma State is now in the #2 position, followed by Ohio State, Iowa, and Missouri to round out the top 5.

Pretty surprising, but there was NO movement among teams ranked in the top 12 of the tournament rankings. Central Michigan went up 4 spots to finish at #15.

In our Hodge Watch, it’s starting to shape into a 2 man race between Zain Retherford of Penn State, and Gabe Dean of Cornell. Further back is Kyle Snyder of Ohio State, followed by Isaiah Martinez (Illinois), and Jason Nolf of Penn State.
