Tuesday night marks the second Senior-level card from the Nittany Lion Wrestling Club on Rokfin. Just over a month ago, Cael Sanderson’s club hosted a 13-match event that pitted many NLWC against quality domestic and international opponents. The overall quality of the wrestling, mixed with solid production, and no collegiate action on the immediate horizon, was a signal that more would come from the NLWC in the future.

Here we are with the second NLWC card. This is still expected to feature 12 matches and has quite a few that are intriguing. Most notably, the main event between three-time NCAA champion Jason Nolf and Bubba Jenkins, a one-time Nittany Lion that transferred to Arizona State and shocked the wrestling world. That isn’t the only match with high caliber competitors. Overall, the card will feature six different wrestlers that have been able to win an age-group world medal. 

Here are the 12 matches on the schedule for the NLWC’s second event taking place tomorrow night. 8pm is the start time and the action will be streamed live on Rokfin. Along with a preview of the events festivities, we have predictions for all of the bouts, too.

Terrell Barraclough vs. Kyle Shoop

This is kind of a surprising matchup to see, but it could end up being fun. Terrell Barraclough is a redshirt freshman for Penn State that captured four state championships while competing in Utah and made the NHSCA Senior National finals. Barraclough was a bit of an “under-the-radar” type recruit, but went out and turned in a quality redshirt campaign. Terrell went 18-4 overall and turned in bonus-point wins in eight of those bouts. He dropped his only three matches of the year against NCAA qualifiers, but did hang tough with Brock Zacherl (Clarion) and Jimmy Hoffman. Speaking of Zacherl, Kyle Shoop met the former Clarion star at PaPower’s True Power event on Saturday night. The Lock Haven All-American, Shoop, fell by tech 12-2. Even so, is Barraclough ready to deal with a more seasoned Shoop?
