STILLWATER, Okla. – The second-ranked Oklahoma State wrestling team cruised to a 25-13 win over Bedlam rival Oklahoma Sunday in front of 4,211 fans at Gallagher-Iba Arena. Junior Jordan Oliver and senior Cayle Byers led the way for the Cowboys with a pair of falls.

OSU (3-0-0 overall; 2-0-0 Big 12), picked up its fourth-straight win over Oklahoma (3-1-0 overall; 2-1-0 Big 12) to improve its all-time series advantage to 129-26-10.

“I thought this was going to be a tougher match,” coach John Smith said. “I thought there could be some battle matches. They have a lot of guys in the middle of the road that are pretty competitive. If you would've told me that we were going to win it 25-13, I probably would've thought it was a good match on our part. After watching it and being exposed to a couple of areas, especially down wrestling, we just really struggled.”

Oliver’s fall came in just 1:30 after a flurry of takedowns, including one in the first second of the bout. The Easton, Pa., native moves to 3-0 on the year and his pin over OU’s Derek Geiges marks his third first-period fall of the season.

“I’m just trying to get out there and get bonus points for the team,” Oliver said. “I want to put points on the board and make guys wrestle, not letting them just stand around. I’m just feeling a lot more comfortable getting on top of guys. If a cradle or pin is there, I’m going to take it.”

Byer’s pin over OU’s Keldrick Hall came in more dramatic fashion. Holding on to a 2-0 lead late in the final period, he was able to turn Hall with less than 30 seconds left and earn the fall in 6:41. His bonus-point win marked his seventh of the year and it built the Cowboys’ dual lead to an out-of-reach 15-6.


 

 

“I wanted to score in the first period this match, but I just wasn’t creating angles,” Byers said. “I figured if I kept putting pressure on him the conditioning would do the rest.”

Senior Jamal Parks started the dual for Cowboys on a good note with a 4-3 decision over No. 11 Nick Lester at 149 pounds. Parks earned a takedown in the first and second periods to take a 4-3 lead into the third and successfully fought off Lester’s attempt to turn him throughout the final two minutes.

Other Cowboy wins included a 5-3 decision from senior Chris McNeil over OU’s Nolan McBryde at 174 pounds, a 7-1 decision from sophomore Chris Perry over OU’s Erich Schmidtke at 184 pounds and 15-2 major decision from junior Alan Gelogaev over OU’s Kyle Colling at heavyweight.

Oklahoma won four bouts on the day, including the 157-, 165-, 125- and 141-pound matches.

The Cowboys are scheduled to return to action Dec. 18 when they travel to Reno, Nev., for the Reno Tournament of Champions. Their next dual meets are set for Dec. 30 at Boise State and Jan. 1 at Wyoming.
