NEWTON, Iowa — Oklahoma State, thanks to Iowa’s Feb. 1 home victory over last week’s top-ranked team, Penn State, has taken over the top spot in WIN’s Dual Team rankings to highlight this week’s team and individual rankings.

The Cowboys, which defeated Iowa earlier this year, won a pair of road dual meets last week over Missouri and Iowa State to move up one spot in the WIN’s Team Dual rankings. The Hawkeyes used the 22-16 victory over the Nittany Lions to earn the No. 2 ranking, one spot ahead of the Nittany Lions.

Penn State, the two-time defending NCAA team champion, still maintained its No. 1 ranking in WIN’s Tournament Power Index, which tabulates a team’s strength looking ahead to this year’s NCAA tournament in March. Iowa and Oklahoma State are rated No. 2 and 3, respectively, in the TPI.

Among the changes to WIN’s individual rankings, Minnesota’s Logan Storley has taken over the top spot at 174 pounds after Oklahoma State’s Chris Perry, rated No. 1 all season, lost for the first time this winter to Missouri’s Todd Porter last weekend.

The WIN TPI is compiled by awarding points to each team for the ranked wrestlers they have in WIN’s current individual rankings that can be found below in all ten weight classes. In a sense, it suggests how many points these teams could score at this year’s NCAA tournament, March 21-23, in Des Moines, Iowa. TPI points will not match the final NCAA tournament points because it does not include bonus points for pins, technical falls, major decisions and forfeits/defaults.

In working to compile the most accurate rankings possible during the season, WIN seeks to subjectively combine both the most recent week’s and season’s results with past performance and proven records of consistency. Those results, in regards to who’s wrestling well, are balanced against who have proven they can win the big matches towards the end of the year and those who will most likely place high or win the national tournament in March.

Teams are awarded points based on how many potential All-Americans (Top 8 wrestlers) they could have and get advancement points for wrestlers ranked No. 9-20. The order of teams in the TPI vary greatly from dual meet rankings, as some teams have a number of highly-ranked individuals but may have holes in their dual meet line-up.

Point totals associated with individual rankings are as followed: 1st – 20 (16 AA points + 4 advancement points); 2nd – 16 (12+4); 3rd – 13.5 (10+3.5); 4th – 12. 5 (9+3.5); 5th – 10 (7+3); 6th – 9 (6+3); 7th – 6.5 (4+2.5); 8th – 5.5 (3+2.5); 9th/12th – 2; 13th/16th – 1.5; 17th-20th – 1.
