Stanford vs North Dakota State Wrestling Dual Meet Preview


Stanford will be taking on the North Dakota State Bison tomorrow night at 5:30pm PST. The dual meet can be streamed on Pac-12 Live.

Projected Matches:

125- Nico Provo (Stanford) vs Carlos Negrete Jr (NDSU)

Shouldn’t be too close of a match with Provo being able to get the win. Most likely will end up in a decision here for Stanford to start things off.

133- Jackson DiSario (Stanford) vs McGwire Midkiff (NDSU)

There isn’t much to look at here at 133. These two met back in February of 2020 where DiSario was able to win an 8-3 decision. Since then they both have seemed to be on the same level, this match might be a big turn in who wins the dual meet.

141- Jason Miranda (Stanford) vs Dylan Droegemueller (NDSU)

The Bison should be looking to pick up their first win of the dual here most likely.

149- Jaden Abas (Stanford) vs Kellyn March (NDSU)

At this point in time it looks like this match would be in the favor of March after the Scuffle but Abas is still very solid and could very well take this bout. This match will have a big bearing on the team score as a whole.

157- Dan Cardenas (Stanford) vs Jared Franek (NDSU)

Cardenas has been solid this year, and so has Franek. I will take Franek by decision in this match here but it should be decently close.

165- Shane Griffith (Stanford) vs Michael Caliendo (NDSU)

This is a rematch of the Scuffle finals where Griffith won 3-2. Even with the match being close it is hard to see the result changing and if anything Griffith probably widens the gap by a couple points.

174- Tyler Eischens (Stanford) vs Gaven Sax (NDSU)

Eischens vs Sax here is more or less a toss up here. Not really much that separates these two but I will take Eischens by decision here.

184- Nick Addison (Stanford) vs DeAnthony Parker (NDSU)

DeAnthony Parker had a great run at the Southern Scuffle where he was able to make the finals only falling to Ok State’s Travis Wittlake. He should be looking for at least a major over Addison here.

197- Nick Stemmet (Stanford) vs Owen Pentz (NDSU)

Pentz is coming off of a Southern Scuffle title, but he did win by injury default to Lou Deprez of Binghamton. He should still have the advantage here over Stemmet the way he has been wrestling so I’ll go Pentz by decision.

285- Seamus O’Malley (Stanford) vs Juan Mora (NDSU)

Mora has been solid for the Bison replacing Brandon Metz, this match should not be too close and honestly I could see a major happening here.
