Michigan vs Wisconsin will be going down tonight at 5pm EST. The dual meet can be streamed live on Big Ten Network+.

Projected Matches:

125- Kurt McHenry (Michigan) vs Eric Barnett (Wisconsin)

Barnett has been looking very good this season with wins over multiple All Americans, he should be able to get the win here over McHenry.

133- Dylan Ragusin (Michigan) vs Taylor LaMont (Wisconsin)

Ragusin should be the favorite to win here at 133, he is coming off a rough loss getting majored by Rayvon Foley so maybe that has some impact.

Doesn’t really look like LaMont has been doing too great so I will take Ragusin here.

141- Cole Mattin (Michigan) vs Joe Zargo (Wisconsin)

One of the swing matches in the dual, looking at prior matches Zargo would be a slight favorite here.

149- Chance Lamer (Michigan) vs Austin Gomez (Wisconsin)

Gomez has been looking great since his win over Yianni and has not really been touched. He should be able to get the win here and by a decent margin but bonus points will be the real question.

157- Will Lewan (Michigan) vs Garrett Model (Wisconsin)

Lewan is coming off a rough loss to MSU’s Chase Saldate, and Model has not looked the greatest so far this season. Would have said major earlier in the season but I will take Lewan by decision here.

165- Cameron Amine (Michigan) vs Dean Hamiti (Wisconsin)

Match of the dual if these two end up wrestling, and the way some of these matches are looking this may be the deciding factor in who wins the dual meet.

The last and only time these two have met in college was at nationals last season where Amine was able to come away with a 7-5 win. Looking at how they have looked this year the projections would have to go with Hamiti but this could very well go either way.

174- Max Maylor (Michigan) vs Josh Otto (Wisconsin)

Should be an interesting one here at 174, Maylor looks like the favorite to win but this match could go either way.

184- Matt Finesilver (Michigan) vs Tyler Dow (Wisconsin)

Finesilver has been looking great for Michigan so far this year, he should have no trouble getting the win over Dow here but he might need to shoot for a major at least in this one.

197- Brendin Yatooma (Michigan) vs Braxton Amos (Wisconsin)

Yatooma is coming off a tie breaker loss to Cameron Caffey so this one should be a lot close than people think, Amos has looked much more impressive this season so I will take Amos by decision.

285- Mason Parris (Michigan) vs Trent Hillger (Wisconsin)

Parris has been looking solid this season and already has a win over Lucas Davison of Northwestern, Hillger looks much better as well.

Hillger dropped a 6-2 match to #1 Greg Kerkvliet but has been looking solid otherwise, Parris by decision seems like the right pick here being that is what has happened in their last three matches.
