COLUMBUS, Ohio– The sixth-ranked Ohio State wrestling team will continue Big Ten Conference action this weekend when it travels to Bloomington, to face Indiana at 7 p.m. Friday in University Gym. The Buckeyes will host No. 19 Wisconsin at 2 p.m. Sunday in St. John Arena.

The Scarlet and Gray opened the week tied for seventh place in the league standings with a 7-2 overall record and 1-2 ledger in the Big Ten. The Hoosiers currently are in a tie for ninth place with a 0-2 conference record and 6 -4 mark overall. The Badgers are second with a 3-0 league record and 6-2 overall mark.

Re-live the Action
The Buckeyes’ match vs. Wisconsin, with former Buckeye J.D. Bergman on the call, will re-air on BTN at 4 p.m. ET Jan. 23.

Buckeyes vs. Hoosiers
Ohio State leads the all-time series vs. Indiana, 46-34-2. In the teams’ last meeting, Dec. 18, 2011, the Buckeyes won, 31-9.

Buckeyes vs. Badgers
Ohio State trails Wisconsin in the all-time series, 28-18-1. The two teams did not meet a year ago, but wrestled in 2011 in Madison, Wis. The Buckeyes dropped a close 23-18 decision in UW Field House.

Stat Leaders
Hunter Stieber leads the Buckeyes in major decisions with eight, while his older brother, Logan, paces the squad in technical falls with four. Logan also owns the team lead in falls with eight with his fastest coming at a time of 39 seconds.

Of his team-leading 21 wins among starters, Hunter Stieber’s eight dual victories are good for the team lead.

W
A trio of Buckeyes in Nikko Triggas, Hunter Stieber and Cam Tessari won their respective matches in Ohio State’s 25-9 setback vs. Minnesota Jan. 11. Triggas gave Ohio State an early 3-0 advantage when he posted a 6-4 decision over No. 13 David Thorn. Holding on to a slim 5-4 lead in the third period, Triggas’ final escape of the match secured his 15th win of the season. Stieber decisioned No. 11 Nick Dardanes in the 141-pound matchup. Most of the action of this bout took place in the first period with Stieber scoring a pair of takedowns to Dardanes' two escapes. An escape by Stieber in the second period lifted the Buckeye sophomore from Monroeville, Ohio, to a 5-2 lead. Dardanes could only manage an escape in the final period for the 5-3 final. Tessari found himself owning a 4-0 advantage heading into the third period vs. Danny Zilverberg. Tessari added a final takedown and escape to win, 7-2.

A Steady Climb
Senior Nikko Triggas is one fall shy of moving into a tie for third place in the Ohio State records book for career falls. Triggas, native of Moraga, Calif., has 44 falls and needs one more to tie Mitch Clark (1994-98) and five more to tie Buckeye record-holder Don Moxley, who compiled 50 falls from 1983-85.

Milestone
Nikko Triggas is three wins away from securing his 90th-career victory as a Buckeye. The senior All-American from Moraga, Calif., currently boasts a 15-6 overall record. Sophomore All-American Hunter Stieber is one win shy of his 50th-career win. Stieber and his brother Logan are the lone undefeated Buckeyes with 21-0 and 15-0 records, respectively.

Up Next
Ohio State will host Illinois in Oak Harbor, Ohio, at 7 p.m. Feb. 1.
