Michigan vs Ohio State Dual Meet Preview


Michigan vs Ohio State will be going down this Friday at 6pm EST and can be streamed live on the Big Ten Network.

Projected Matchups:

125- Jack Medley vs Malik Heinselman

Medley has been looking good after his win over Eric Barnett of Wisconsin, but he is 0-4 against Medley. Heinselman has been looking solid this season as well and should take the win here.

133- Dylan Ragusin vs Jesse Mendez

One of two feature matches in this dual meet, this one really just depends as both guys look dead even. The only thing you could really pick out in their seasons is that Mendez has beaten Lucas Byrd and Ragusin lost to Byrd.

141- Cole Mattin vs Dyaln D’Emilio

Another match that should be really close, will have to give D’Emilio the edge on this one however based on prior results. They have split 1-1 in the past with Mattin’s win coming by way of injury default.

149- Chance Lamer vs Sammy Sasso

Most likely a win here for Sasso regardless, but it is very possible that we see Fidel Mayora wrestle for Michigan who took the mat in a couple prior dual meets.

157- Will Lewan vs Paddy Gallagher

Lewan will be the favorite to get the win here over Gallagher, both wrestlers have a loss to Levi Haines with Lewan’s coming in sudden victory last friday.

Most likely a close decision here for Lewan being that most of his matches are pretty tight scoring.

165- Cameron Amine vs Carson Kharchla

Close matches always between these two, both have very solid offenses when they decide to go. Amine will most likely have a very slight edge in this one but this is a very big match that will have seeding implications for Big Tens.

174- Max Maylor vs Ethan Smith

Smith and Maylor have wrestled three times in their college careers, the last two times that they wrestled it was a tech and a major for Smith. Maybe it is a major again this time but definitely a decisive win for Smith here.

184- Matt Finesilver vs Kaleb Romero

These guys wrestled earlier this season and it was a 12-5 win for Romero. This should in theory be a closer match this time around but there is a chance that Romero extends the gap.

197- Brendin Yatooma vs Gavin Hoffman

These two wrestled back in December where Hoffman won by major decision, I would expect a somewhat closer scoreline here as he has had some close matches with tough opponents.

285- Mason Parris vs Tate Orndorff

This match has really never been close historically, Parris is looking a lot better this season so we might see a tech or pin here. Worst case it will be a major unless something crazy happens.
