Rutgers has looked very solid so far this season with some dominant wins and them being ranked in the top 10 this season. North Carolina as we have seen is not a team to be doubted by any means. Rutgers will be a decent favorite but not too overwhelming.

This is going to be a big matchup for the dual meet Kizhan Clarke is coming off a big win over 3x All American Chad Red and will be looking to add to that and take out 2x Big Ten Champion Sebastian Rivera.
Mike Van Brill vs #10 Zach Sherman
Robert Kanniard vs #3 Austin O’ Connor

Boone McDermott vs Brandon Whitman
