Mizzou had their final dual of the year at home and brought home a big upset win along with a new attendance record. The Tiger fans showed up strong with 4,819, breaking the 2019 record of 4,721 against OK State. Mizzou celebrated senior night as well, with Connor Brown, Allan Hart, and Jarrett Jacques as starters in their final year, along with Mitchell Bohlken.
Mizzou wrestled well, winning six matches overall. It started at 174 and the teams traded wins and losses in the first six matches. There were two big upsets, as Zach Elam and Keegan O’Toole both went down. Two pins from Surtin and Mauller broke the dual score wide open late, and a gritty decision from Jacques locked up the win.
There is technically a three way tie for the Big 12 dual title between OK State, Iowa State, and Mizzou who have all beaten each other. However, Mizzou has the best team score differential so I’m giving it to them.
174lbs: #7 Peyton Mocco Dec. #27 Julien Broderson (7-5)
Mocco came out and after some feeling out, got two takedowns in the first period. He escaped in the second before another takedown, but gave up one late. In the third period he couldn’t keep Broderson down. Throughout the match it felt like Mocco was a bit sluggish, and he looked somewhat tired late..
