Friday night, Penn State wrestling did what Penn State does.

Performing in the Bryce Jordan Center for the first time since before COVID-19 pinned the world on its back, Cael Sanderson’s No. 1 Nittany Lions rolled over No. 6 Ohio State, 32-7. Penn State is now 15-0 overall and 7-0 in the Big Ten, and has won 26 consecutive dual meets. This is their second win over a Top 10 school in the past week. The Nittany Lions edged Iowa, 19-13, last week in Iowa City.

From the get-go, Penn State was too much for Ohio State (6-3, 2-3). The first match of the night was a top ten matchup at the 125-pound weight class. Penn State’s Drew Hildebrandt (No. 6) took a 2-0 win over Ohio State’s Malik Heinselman (No. 10). Penn State kept rolling from there, getting out to a 13-0 lead.

Of the night’s 10 matches, Penn State won all but two of them, with Roman Bravo-Young (133) and Aaron Brooks (184) living up to their No. 1 rankings by picking up falls over Ohio State’s Brady Koontz and Rocky Jordan, respectively. At 197, No. 2 Max Dean took care of business with a 5-3 decision over No. 21 Gavin Hoffman.

Penn State’s will next be in action will be Sunday, when it hosts Nebraska at Rec Hall. That meet kicks off at noon.
