WrestleStat Rankings – Week 3 2020

After our upset-packed weekend, the rankings have been re-processed.

Some notables:

  1. Sebastian Rivera has 2 matches at 133, and his ranking at that weight is now #2, right behind Seth Gross.
  2. Brent Moore of Virginia Tech moves up 12 spots to #4 after pinning #2 Sammy Sasso.
  3. Ethan Smith of Ohio State moved up 10 spots to close at #12 at 165 pounds.
  4. Dean Sherry also gets 14-place bump all the way to #12 after his upset win over Skatzka of Minnesota.
  5. Kyle Conel slips down 2 spots to finish at #4 at 197.
  6. There’s a new #2 at 285, and he works for Michigan. Mason Parris trades places with Matt Stencel after his upset win last weekend. Don’t worry though, Stencel has a chance at revenge THIS WEEK as Central Michigan and Michigan meet in a dual.

Weekend Upsets with WrestleStat – Week 3 2020

Holy smokes! What a weekend!

Since we’ve been running this site, I’m not sure we’ve ever had a weekend of upsets quite like this.

At the top of our list this week, #68 Aaron Bolo knocked off #2 Kyle Conel of Penn State. Watching the match, it definitely looked like Conel tweaked his knee in the 3rd period. Hope he’s not out for an extended period of time. Also, in the Virginia Tech vs Ohio State dual, where Virginia Tech got the upset, #21 Brent Moore upset and pinned #2 Sammy Sasso. Also, #5 Mason Parris continues his impressive start to the season knocking off #3 Matt Stencel of Central Michigan. Parris is absolutely a force and has finalist written all over him.

WrestleStat Dual Comparisons for Week 3 – 2020

I believe after this weekend, EVERY school will have wrestled a dual or tournament, so it’s getting exciting!

We have a very intriguing matchup on Friday where #10 Pittsburgh travels to #5 Ohio State (which will be streamed on ESPN). This dual is MUCH closer than people are realizing, with tossup matches at 125, 165, 174, and 285. For the other weights, it looks like OSU is favored in 4 of the 6, but don’t be surprised about some upsets (and 133 could definitely go in OSU’s favor as well).

Also, Oklahoma State has duals on Friday and Saturday, and I saw on twitter yesterday that they are expecting 133 true freshman Reece Witcraft to have his redshirt pulled, so be on the lookout for that, as well as make an #FantasyCollegeWrestling moves that you may need to do…

Speaking of that dual for Oklahoma State on Saturday, it’s up against #8 Lehigh. Lookout for that 174 matchup between #5 Joe Smith and #3 Jordan Kutler!

WrestleStat Rankings – Week 2 2020

Only 2nd week, so many upsets; and with projected starters still out, that changes the dual rankings as well.

With Austin O’Connor now out with injury, Sammy Sasso is now your #1 at 149, and the redshirt freshman has looked fantastic this season.

Kendall Coleman continues his rise up to #11 at 157.

Jackson Turley (165) of Rutgers made a 50-spot leap after a good performance at the Journeyman, as well as Harvard’s Phillip Conigliaro moving up 48 spots after his Bearcat Open performance.

And at 285, Tate Orndorff moved up 7 spots after his 2 top-10 wins over the weekend to come in at #5.

In our dual rankings, with Penn State holding out a couple projected starters, they ended up falling to #2 in the rankings, while Iowa moved into the top spot despite not having wrestled any matches yet this season. Although, the tournament rankings stayed pretty much the same because of their firepower at the top.
