Live Scoring vs. Buffalo!
Live Scoring vs. American!
The Ohio wrestling squad (6-3 overall, 1-0 MAC) will tussle with Mid-American Conference foe Buffalo Saturday evening at 7 p.m. ET in the Convocation Center before 10th-ranked American visits Sunday afternoon at 1 p.m. for another dual matchup.
The Bobcats are led by a trio of wrestlers this season in 15th-ranked Erik Schuth at 197, 20th-ranked Germane Lindsey at 141 and 20th-ranked Jeremy Johnson at heavyweight. The team is fresh off a pair of victories over Campbell (57-0) and NC State (30-12) last weekend. The Bobcats got eight pins against the Camels, including Schuth's 15-second victory over his opponent.
Buffalo is looking to avenge a close 22-17 loss in last season's dual meet in Buffalo. The Bulls are led by Desi Green, who is ranked 16th at the 149-lb. class. The team finished eighth at the New York State Championships, hosted by Binghamton University last weekend. Kevin Smith won the team's lone title at 133, but six wrestlers in all placed for UB.
American enters Sunday's match at 11-4 overall after blasting George Mason 43-3 Thursday evening. The Eagles have six wrestlers ranked in the top 20 nationally, including top-ranked Steve Fittery at 157. Ryan Flores (sixth, HWT), Ganbayar Sanjaa (11th, 149), Matt Mariacher (13th, 141), Daniel Mitchell (20th, 197) and Nick Arujau (20th, 126) are also among the nation's best.
