NEWTON, Iowa — Brandon Sorensen’s victory over Northwestern’s defending national champion Jason Tsirtis at 149 pounds last Friday solidified Iowa’s No. 1 ranking in WIN’s Jan. 26 Tournament Power Index (TPI) and Dual Team Rankings presented by Cliff Keen Athletic.

Iowa and No. 2 Minnesota both have 10-0 records before the teams are scheduled to face each other in a dual meet this Friday, Jan. 30, in Minneapolis. Meanwhile, the Hawkeyes have increased their lead over the Gopher in TPI points (92-83.5) and lead all schools with eight wrestlers rated in the Top 8 of their weight class.

And while Sorensen’s overtime win moved the Hawkeye freshman up to No. 3 in WIN’s individual rankings, the upset victory also moved Missouri’s Drake Houdashelt to No. 1 at 149. This gives the undefeated Tigers (17-0) two top-ranked wrestlers (along with 197-pound J’den Cox) and pushes No. 3 Missouri closer to Iowa and Minnesota in this week’s rankings with 78.5 TPI points.

WIN’s TPI is based on where a school is projected to finish in this March’s NCAA Division I Championships in St. Louis, based on schools’ currently ranked individuals and not on a school’s dual-meet record.

Point totals are broken down by the following projected placements: 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. TPI points will be lower than the final NCAA tournament points because it does not include bonus points.

WIN’s next updated TPI Rankings, Dual and Individual rankings will be announced on Monday, Feb. 2.
