Lions Stay Undefeated in Michigan, Shut-Out Spartans 35-0

The magic number for the Penn State wrestling team on Sunday was 10.

The team won 10 out of 10 bouts on the way to its tenth victory of the season. The Nittany Lions wrapped up their weekend in Michigan on Sunday in East Lansing, shutting out Michigan State 35-0 after beating the Wolverines in Ann Arbor on Friday night.

How It Happened

Junior Jordan Conaway, No. 8 at 125, started off the action for the Lions and made quick work of his opponent, winning 13-6 and picking up a point with 1:36 in riding time. Up next was sophomore Jimmy Gulibon, No. 9 at 133, who faced off against Garth Yenter. Up 2-0 after one period, Gulibon chose down to start the second where he couldn’t escape Yenter’s ride for a more than a minute. Gulibon eventually escaped to a 3-0 lead and would go on to win 4-0 with 1:33 in riding time. Redshirt freshman Kade Moss battled back and forth with Terry Turner at 141. Tied at 8-8, Moss countered on a Turner single with five seconds left in the third to win 10-8.

Sophomore Zack Beitz, No. 18 at 149, tussled his way to a 13-3 major decision to put Penn State up 13-0. At 157, redshirt freshman Cody Law got the start over No. 8 Dylan Alton. Law racked up the takedowns in his bout on the way to a 22-11 major decision. Garett Hammond was up next at 165 and picked up a 9-7 win in a close bout that came down to the last few seconds. Matt Brown, No. 3 at 174, notched seven takedowns before pinning Nick Proctor at the 4:54 mark in the bout. At 184, No. 17 redshirt freshman Matt McCutcheon coupled a few reversals and takedowns on his way to an 8-2 victory. Junior Morgan McIntosh, No. 5 at 197, used an escape and over a minute in riding time to post a 2-0 win over senior Nick McDiarmid. To finish off the match, senior Jimmy Lawson, No. 6 at 285, posted an 8-2 win with 2:45 in riding time.

Man of the Match

Cody Law. Starting in place of No. 8 Dylan Alton at 157, Law picked up his 13th career win and second major decision of the year. Law collected ten takedowns in the victory.

What’s Next

No. 7 Penn State will return to Happy Valley to take on No. 1 Iowa in the Bryce Jordan Center on Sunday. The match will be televised live on Big Ten Network.
