Oklahoma State cruises to wrestling win over Okla.
Question of the Day
STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - Eighth-ranked Oklahoma State won seven of ten bouts in rolling to a 29-9 victory over No. 10 Oklahoma on Sunday, in the 170th all-time meeting, avenging a loss to the Sooners earlier this season.
“I know (Oklahoma) wasn’t able to put the team on the mat that they wanted, but I felt that it was another good performance,” said Oklahoma State coach John Smith. “Even the matches we lost, I felt like we were competitive.”
“It is what it is,” said Perry (20-1). “All we can do is wrestle who they put in front of you. But I do think we wrestled well. We’ve got some guys who are gaining some momentum at the right time of the season.”
The Cowboys (8-4) raced to a 12-0 lead after 141 pounds, and led 26-3 when Perry pinned Derek Geiges at 174 pounds.
Sooner coach Mark Cody was forced, due to injury, to use a different lineup than one that beat Oklahoma, 16-15, back in December. Four starters did not participate.
“It’s unfortunate, because Bedlam is a big dual for us,” said Cody, a former assistant coach at OSU. “I can’t forfeit, and we are, with what we have right now due to injuries, in a tough situation. Against a team like Oklahoma State, one of the best in the country, you can’t be without your starters.”
Oklahoma (9-3) won two of the last three matches, getting decisions by Andrew Howe at 184 and Travis Rutt at 197 pounds. Howe, ranked No. 1 at 174 pounds, wrestled up a weight class.
OSU wrestles at Penn State, the reigning national champions, next Sunday.
“That is going to be fun,” Morrison said. “That is a match we circled when the seasons started and I think we are wrestling well as a team right now.”
