CEDAR FALLS, Iowa – The No. 2 Oklahoma State wrestling team handed No. 14 Iowa State a 37-9 beating in the consolation bracket at the NWCA/Cliff Keen National Duals Sunday morning. The Cowboys won eight of the 10 bouts, with six of those wins coming with bonus points attached.

 

It was the most lopsided win for OSU over Iowa State since a 37-8 victory over the Cyclones in 1984.

 

The win moved the Cowboys into the fifth-place match at the National Duals, where they will face No. 13 Missouri at 1 p.m. today. The Tigers were 21-12 winners over No. 6 Boise State this morning.

 

Cowboy 133-pounder Jordan Oliver and 197-pounder Clayton Foster both scored first-period wins by fall over their Cyclone counterparts and 157-pounder Neil Erisman claimed a 17-0 technical fall triumph in a tidy 3:33 to provide the highlights of the dual.
