NEWTON, Iowa — Stevan Micic, a national runner-up at 133 pounds in 2018, has taken over the top spot in WIN Magazine’s Jan. 14 rankings presented by Cliff Keen Athletic.

Stevan Micic

The Wolverine, ranked second a week ago, moved up to No. 1 after Oklahoma State’s Daton Fix knocked off Rutgers’ previously-top-ranked Nick Suriano in overtime this past Sunday in Piscataway, N.J. Fix and Suriano are now ranked second and third in WIN’s weekly rankings.

The top spots of the remaining nine weights remained unchanged as defending national team champion Penn State features four No. 1-ranked wrestlers: Jason Nolf (157), Vincenzo Joseph (165), Mark Hall (174) and Bo Nickal (197). The other top-ranked individuals include Northwestern’s Sebastian Rivera (125), Cornell’s Yianni Diakomihalis (141), Princeton’s Matt Kolodzik (149), Ohio State’s Myles Martin (184) and Minnesota’s Gable Steveson (Hwt).

Undefeated Penn State remains No. 1 in both WIN’s Tournament Power Index (with 122 TPI points) and Dual Team Rankings. The battle for No. 2 in the TPI got closer as No. 2 Ohio State (86) holds a 2.5-point margin over Oklahoma State (83.5) in the TPI.

WIN’s Tournament Power Index (TPI) awards team points for individuals ranked in the respective weight classes based on how many potential All-Americans each school could produce at the 2019 NCAA Championships, March 21-23, in Pittsburgh, Pa.

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.
