Oklahoma State and Penn State head to Reno ranked 1st and 2nd

Updated: December 12, 2016

NEWTON, Iowa — As Oklahoma State and Penn State prepare to meet for the first time this Sunday at the Reno Tournament of Champions, the Cowboys and Nittany Lions remain the top two schools in WIN’s Dec. 12, 2016 Tournament Power Index, presented by Cliff Keen Athletic.

The Cowboys have tallied 94.5 TPI points, based on 10 ranked wrestlers, including seven rated among the top eight in their weight class. The Lions are second in WIN’s TPI with 87.5 points, based on nine ranked wrestlers, six in the top eight.

The 22nd annual event, which begins Friday and Saturday with a high school tournament, will see 26 college teams compete on Sunday, Dec. 18, in Reno, Nev.

If all of Oklahoma State’s and Penn State’s ranked wrestlers compete in the Reno TOC, here are wrestlers from each of the top two teams who would be in the same bracket:

Weight1. Oklahoma State2. Penn State
12512. Nick Piccininni5. Nick Suriano
1336. Kaid Brock20. Jered Cortez
1411. Dean Heil
1493. Anthony Collica1. Zain Retherford
1573. Joe Smith1. Jason Nolf
1659. Chandler Rogers7. Vincezo Joseph
1744. Kyle Crutchmer11. Geno Morelli
1845. Nolan Boyd3. Bo Nickal
1975. Preston Weigel12. Matt McCutcheon
Hwt9. Austin Schafer4. Nick Nevills

Ranked just behind Penn State is No. 3 Iowa, which is coming off an instate dual victory over Iowa State and features seven ranked wrestlers, all in the Top 8, for 87 TPI points.

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.
