All 10 wrestlers ranked for No. 1 Oklahoma State in WIN’s Nov. 28 ratings

Updated: November 28, 2016

NEWTON, Iowa — Oklahoma State features a nationally-ranked wrestler at all ten weight classes and the Cowboys remain No. 1 in WIN’s Nov. 28 Tournament Power Index and Rankings, presented by Cliff Keen Athletic.

Joining the national rankings for OSU is senior heavyweight Austin Schafer who is rated No. 14 after the unranked wrestler upset Minnesota All-American Michael Kroells in last weekend’s Cowboy dual-meet victory over the Gophers.

This week’s rankings, based on results through Nov. 27, is the third of 16 weekly rankings by Wrestling Insider Newsmagazine. WIN will announce its first NCAA Division I Dual Team rankings on Dec. 5.

The TPI is based on the schools’ wrestlers who are rated in WIN’s individual rankings, predicting possible All-American placement (top eight finishers per weight) in the 2017 NCAA Championships, which will be held March 16-18 in St. Louis.

WIN’s TPI point totals are broken down by the following individual rankings: 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). Additional points for other rankings include: 9th/12th – 2; 13th/16th – 1.5; 17th-20th – 1. TPI points will be lower than the final actual NCAA tournament points because it does not include bonus points.

With eight wrestlers rated among the top eight in their weight class, Oklahoma State tallied 100.5 TPI points. Trailing the Cowboys are Iowa (with six Top-8 wrestlers and 86 points), Ohio State (5/78), Virginia Tech (6/76) and defending national champion Penn State (5/74).
