Every Friday, OhioStateBuckeyes.com features one of the many Ohio State social media accounts to follow. The No. 6 Ohio State wrestling team kicks off the 2013 Big Ten Championships this weekend and is today’s #FF - @wrestlingbucks

Five Buckeyes earned a Top 5 pre-seed for this weekend’s tournament. Hunter Stieber and Logan Stieber enter as the No. 1 seeds at 141 and 133 pounds and are both undefeated on the season with 27-0 and 19-0 records, respectively.

Ohio State has won two Big Ten championships in program history. The Buckeyes’ first title was won in 1923 and their second in 1951. Individually, the Scarlet and Gray has crowned 35 individual conference champions, most recently Logan Stieber (133 pounds) last year. Stieber, also the 2013 NCAA champion, was named to the All-Big Ten team and earned Big Ten Freshman of the Year honors.

The championship finals of the Big Ten championships will air live on BTN at 2:30 p.m. ET. Fans also can watch the championships on the go via BTN2Go, which is a digital extension of the Big Ten Network. BTN2Go delivers live and on-demand programming to existing BTN subscribers via the web, as well as to iPhone and iPad users.
