2020 Pac-12 Conference Championships


Pac 12 Championshipsm March 7, Palo Alto, Calif.

2020 Nationally-Ranked Wrestlers / Top 8: 11 / 7

2019 NCAA Qualifiers / Champs / All-Americans:  20/1/5

Team Race: With only five schools competing in the Pac-12s, Arizona State was favored considering two 2019 champs were expected to return in Josh Shields and two-time national champ Zahid Valencia and Zeke Jones’ team featured six nationally-ranked wrestlers.

But Valencia has been suspended and tourney-host Stanford hopes to win its first-ever Pac-12 title with two returning champs in Requir Van der Merve (149) and Nathan Traxler (197).

Top Individual Matchups: There are two weights that could feature ASU-Stanford head-to-heads.

• At 165, where Shields will be challenged by Shane Griffith, who is one of three nationally-ranked Stanford freshmen.

• At 197, Traxler has been ranked behind ASU’s Kordell Norfleet after losing in overtime to the Sun Devil on Jan. 31.

Oregon State returns a champ in Grant Willits (141), who is not currently ranked by WIN. Stanford freshman Real Woods should be the No. 1 seed.
