Keep your fingers crossed wrestling fans that all the teams invited to the Matman Invitational hosted by the Cornell College Rams send their full lineups.  If that is the case, this year we will be able to see some incredible matches and an absolute scrum at the top of the leaderboard as teams scramble to win the tournament.  Six teams that are ranked in the most recent NWCA Division III coaches rankings are set to send athletes.  That could include four teams that currently sit in the top 10. Over 30 ranked wrestlers could step on the mat this Saturday to compete for Matman Invitational titles.  That includes 14 wrestlers currently ranked first or second which means this field is not only deep, but it is heavy at the top with studs.  Two different weight classes could feature half of the athletes ranked at those weights.  There will be some great wrestling action this weekend and we'll break down the top contenders at each weight.
