Updated: January 3, 2017

NEWTON, Iowa — Following an impressive team championship at the Southern Scuffle on Jan. 1-2 in Chattanooga, Tenn., where Oklahoma State set a record for points and saw four Cowboys claim individual championships, OSU retained its No. 1 spot in WIN’s Jan. 3, 2017 Tournament Power Index, presented by Cliff Keen Athletic.

The Cowboys (5-0), who are also ranked No. 1 in WIN Dual Team rankings, feature eight wrestlers who are listed among the Top 8 in their weights, which would also earn them All-American honors this March at the 2017 NCAA Championships in St. Louis. Oklahoma State leads the field in WIN’s weekly rankings with 100 TPI points.

Just behind OSU in both the dual rankings and TPI are No. 2 and defending NCAA champ Penn State (4-0 and 89 TPI points) and No. 3 Iowa (5-0, 88), which is also coming off a team championship at the Midlands, Dec. 29-30, in Evanston, Ill.

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.
