Preview & Predictions: #11 Mizzou (7-3) vs #3 Iowa State (16-2)

#11 Mizzou (7-3) vs #3 Iowa State (16-2)

All Time Record vs: 10-45

Mizzou will be looking to bounce back from their first conference loss this season to take on an even bigger test in #3 Iowa State. Last year a short handed Mizzou team was upset at home 17-16, which gave the Big 12 unofficial dual title to Iowa State. This year Mizzou is looking to field their full team at home for a senior night dual. This dual features four top ten matchups, and nine ranked matches overall. 

The Tigers match up well on paper, and are favored in eight matches. However there are some significant toss up matches that they will have to win for the dual. They struggled against Oklahoma State in the toss ups last dual, so they’ll have to make some changes coming into this dual. 

125lbs: #13 Noah Surtin (12-4) vs Caleb Fuessley (8-11)/Ethan Perryman (9-3)

If Mizzou wants to win this dual, bonus points are always important and Surtin could have a chance here. Last week Surtin struggled to get his offense going, but has shown an ability this season to get bonus points. Iowa State has a few potential options here, as they’ve struggled with injuries at this weight this year. 

Fuessley has filled in most this year, and has had some tight matches but hasn’t been able to get consistent wins. Perryman is a redshirting freshman who still has one starting opportunity left. He hasn’t gotten any signature wins himself this year…
