The rest of the match-ups in this year’s NWCA National Duals — which features the top eight Big Ten Conference teams traveling to highly-ranked non-Big Ten schools — are as follows with this week’s WIN dual rankings:

In WIN’s Feb. 13 Tournament Power Index, presented by Cliff Keen Athletic, which predicts how teams will finish in this year’s NCAA Division I Championships, held March 16-18 in St. Louis, defending champion Penn State was ranked No. 1 with 103.5 TPI points, compared to 86.5 TPI points by Oklahoma State. Just behind the Cowboys are Ohio State (82.5) and Iowa (79.5).

The following is a closer look between the match-up between Penn State and Oklahoma State and where each school’s wrestler (per weight) is ranked. PSU’s starter at 133 pounds could be unranked George Carpenter or Triston Law.

WIN’s TPI point totals are based on how individuals will also place in this year’s NCAAs: 1st – 20 (16 All-American 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.
