The start of the 2021-2022 NCAA Division I wrestling season is just two days away!

On Monday, November 1, Wisconsin (Big Ten) travels to Buffalo (MAC) for the first dual meet of the NCAA regular season. 

With that, here are The Open Mat’s first set of national (preseason) 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. Also of note, true freshmen were withheld from this initial ranking. 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).
