2013 NCAA wrestling results: Day 2

In what was described as odd or unfair by many in the wrestling community, the decision to have the final wrestling match be the 165 pound final appears to be a gamble that paid off. Top seeds, and arguably the two best wrestlers in all of college, Kyle Dake and David Taylor will move onto the finals tonight. Taylor is among five Penn State wrestlers who will be competing in the finals along with Nicolas Megaludis, Quentin Wright, Ed Ruth and Matthew Brown. Cael Sanderson’s team headed into the tournament with a wide bonus point lead and headed into the finals, currently carry 114.5 points. Oklahoma State is in second with 94 while Minnesota is in third with 88. The Cowboys have Chris Perry and Jordan Oliver headed into the finals, but will need a round of poor performances from the Nittany Lions for their team to have any chance of winning the title. The complete list of semifinal results are as follows: 125 Semifinal – Nicholas Megaludis (Penn State) 28-3 won in tie breaker – 2 over Alan Waters (Missouri) 32-1 (TB-2 3-2) Semifinal – Jesse Delgado (Illinois) 25-3 won by decision over Nahshon Garrett (Cornell) 41-5 (Dec 10-5) 133 Semifinal – Logan Stieber (Ohio St.) 25-0 won by tech fall over A.J.
