PSU 120.5 Maximum additional placement points - 26
OSU 109.5 Maximum additional placement points - 32

2 matchups to negate the other - 184 final Nickal vs Martin & 141 3rd place consolation, McKenna and Lee must win their semi to face off.

Additional bonus points will be a factor. 

Team race will likely come down to Nickal v Martin....

Can you guess which bout will likely be No. 10 in the order tonight ?

I thought it was announced that Snyder vs Coon would be the main event?

I'd like to see Martin vs. Nickal end the night if the the team title was on the line.

Wow! Kasper's headlock was a thing of a beauty. I thought Stoll had him in that bodylock.

Please kick Desanto out of the tourney, he was trying to seriously injure Micic!  Uncalled for immature and he is a bum!

Wilson deserved that 3rd @ 133. Nobody pushed Gross like he did last night this year, and he's the only other guy besides Micic who beat Pletcher.

Great match and performance throughout the tournament.

What the heck did Wilson and Conel eat last week ?  Both came in with 10 losses and cleaned house to 3rd.

Wilson's offense was incredible this weekend. Even his loss in OT he had gotten in on the legs and Gross just finessed his way out of it. Basically Wilson saw legs and he took them

I want what they're having. Both just steamrolled through their brackets.

I thought Wilson had the potential to be an offensive dynamo from some flashes/glimpses of prowess he showed throughout the season, but I did not think he perform the way he did at the Big Dance. I really had no clue who Conel was going into NCAAs.

Who is everyone taking in the finals, and who are you picking to win the team race?

125: Suriano/Lee
133: Gross/Micic
141: Meredith/Yianni
149: Retherford/Perry
157: Hidlay/Nolf
165: Martinez/Joseph
174: Valencia/Hall
184: Nickal/Martin
197: Macchiavello/Haught
285: Snyder/Coon

I'll take tOSU with 138.5 followed by PSU with 133.5

The Martin/Nickal match has huge team race implications, and I hope it's the deciding factor.

It would appear you prefer PSU to lose gauging from your picks. I like them.  :D

Not so much that I prefer PSU to lose, it just so happens that Joseph and Hall are against some California guys that I always root for  ;D

I'd also just  like to see Martin get a win here so this match-up can stay a rivalry. This will be the 9th meeting between Nickal and Martin, and he needs a few wins to get this series closer to .5
