Peyton Robb Stuns Defending National Champion Austin O’Connor


Wow the biggest upset of the season as number 16 Peyton Robb of Nebraska takes out Austin O’ Connor of UNC. O’ Connor won a huge match in the NCAA Finals last season over Sammy Sasso of Ohio State 3-2 fending off an insane attack from Sasso at the end of the third period.

This match went pretty much how most people would have expected a Peyton Robb vs Austin O’ Connor match to go with shots and having to work very hard for a finish and pretty much just toughing it out. That is exactly what Peyton Robb did.

An interesting fact is that Austin O’ Connor is moving up from 149 pounds as Peyton Robb is coming down from 165 pounds so size was a big factor as most of you can assume.

Time come the third period Robb hits a quick shuck and takes down O’ Connor again! and is looking on track to just straight out beat the Tarheel.

The biggest upset of the year 100% and it is not close at this point! It is going to be a great season and we are just getting started!
