Our eighth full week of the 2021-2022 NCAA Division I wrestling season is in the books!

Weeks seven and eight relatively quiet as student-athletes were in final exams and celebrating the Christmas holiday. That being said, 2021 Colligate Duals in Niceville, Florida, did shake things up in the latest TOM D-I College Individual Regular Season Rankings from their previous iteration on November 14.

Here is The Open Mat’s latest set of national rankings for the 2021-22 Division I season. As the action progresses and starting lineups and weights classes become clearer, TOM will adjust its rankings accordingly. We have done so already and that will continue doing so throughout the year. Also of note, true freshmen are withheld from initial rankings. Once they wrestle at least one regular season match, they will be able to be added into the rankings.

Questions or comments are welcomed and encouraged. Feel free to contact TOM Site Editor Christopher Miller (Email: cmiller@theopenmat.com Twitter: @C_Miller_atTOM) or DM to our official Twitter  account (@theopenmat).
