Penn State Wrestling in Second Place at Southern Scuffle After Day One
Penn State is holding strong after the first day of the Southern Scuffle, trailing only Minnesota by the slimmest of margins. The Nittany Lions put up 53 points to their 53.5, with Oklahoma State not far behind at 50 points.
All 17 Nittany Lions will wrestle today as Penn State looks to win its fourth straight Southern Scuffle — one of the nation’s most competitive wrestling tournaments in Chattanooga, Tenn. Twelve of those 17 wrestlers won yesterday and will participate in the quarterfinals today.
Here’s a rundown on how the defending champions fared yesterday:
Zach Beitz had a huge 10-4 upset over No. 9 All-American Scott Sakaguchi of Oregon State in the second round of the scuffle. Beitz won in a 6-3 decision in the third round, and he will be looking for another upset over No. 8 Chris Villalonga of Cornell in the quarterfinals.
