As we come down the stretch of the collegiate regular season there are only a few wrestlers at each weight class with a zero in the loss column. All ten weights have at least one wrestler that still has the opportunity to go undefeated. Just how good is that chance? I’m glad you asked. We’ve outlined the remaining schedules for all of the undefeated wrestlers and highlighted some of the notable upcoming matches. For the weights where there are no head-to-head meetings looming, we’ve also discussed the likelihood that these competitors remain undefeated.
Here’s the usual disclaimer for these types of exercises. Unfortunately, we probably will not get to see all of these matches as injuries/dual strategies can rear their ugly heads. These are just the probable matchups for each wrestler based on recent lineups.
There are also a couple of notable wrestlers (Brady Berge, etc) that have not wrestled recently and have only competed a few times this year. They have been left out from this exercise.
