Iowa-Penn State ranked #1/#2 in WIN’s Preseason College Poll

By
Updated: September 11, 2019

NEWTON, Iowa — The University of Iowa wrestling program, owners of 23 all-time NCAA team titles, is ranked No. 1 in WIN Magazine’s 2019-20 Preseason NCAA Tournament Power Index and Individual Rankings, presented by Cliff Keen Athletics.

The Hawkeyes, whose last NCAA title came in 2010, features seven returning All-Americans — including two-time NCAA champion Spencer Lee at 125 pounds — and have nine ranked wrestlers for 106.5 TPI points.

Penn State, which has won the last four NCAA team championships and eight over the past nine years, is ranked second with 97 TPI points as eight Nittany Lions are ranked in the pre-season poll. That includes five past All-Americans, including three past champions in heavyweight Anthony Cassar (2019), 165-pound Vincenzo Joseph (2017-18) and 174-pound Mark Hall (2017).

The next three ranked teams are Wisconsin (51.5 TPI points), Nebraska (50) and Lehigh (42.5).

WIN’s rankings could change once teams decide on what weights wrestlers will compete and if certain guys will redshirt or not. The preseason rankings also do not include true or redshirt freshmen. They’ll be be added once the season begins in November and have wrestled varsity matches.

WIN’s Tournament Power Index is a prediction of accumulated NCAA points of ranked wrestlers on a respective team associated to where they might place at the 2020 NCAA Championships, March 19-21, in Minneapolis, Minn.

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.

There are seven ranked wrestlers who have won NCAA championships, including two at 133 pounds: Nick Suriano, who captured Rutgers’ first NCAA title last year, and Seth Gross, who transferred to Wisconsin after winning South Dakota State’s first Division I national champion.

Another returning champion is Arizona State senior Zahid Valencia, who has moved up to 184 pounds this winter after winning titles at 174 pounds the past two seasons.

WIN’s Dual-Team rankings will be announced on Dec. 2, 2019.
