No. 1 Oklahoma State edges Oklahoma



NORMAN, Okla. - Oklahoma State's Jared Rosholt recorded a decision over Brad Farmer in the final match of the dual to lift the top-ranked Cowboys to a 17-15 victory over Bedlam rival Oklahoma at the McCasland Fieldhouse in Norman, Okla.

OSU extended its Bedlam winning streak to 17 consecutive matches and improved to 3-0 on the season. OU dropped to 3-1 on the year.

The Cowboys and Sooners traded victories following OU's victory at 157 by Will Rowe, which gave the Sooners a 9-8 lead in the dual. Johny Hendricks gave OSU the lead back with a decision, but OU's Josh Weitzel upset Brandon Mason in sudden victory to put the Sooners in a position for their first Bedlam victory since the 1995-96 season. Hendricks victory was the 100th of his career.

The swing match came down to 184 where Jack Jensen met Josh Hinton. OU had fifth-ranked Joel Flaggert waiting at 197 where he could put the dual out of reach for the Cowboys. Jensen took control of the match with a first period takedown and a second period rideout. Jensen held on for a 5-3 decision to give the Cowboys a 14-12 lead in the dual.

"Coming in you have to perform for the team," Jensen said. "It was my job to get the win whether it is a decision or major decision or whatever. I need to win to help my team. In that situation it was pivotal."

"It was nice to see him step out there and create some action," head coach John Smith said. "He put on a tough ride and that is what it takes to win tough matches. He did a fine job of it."

Flaggert gave the Sooners the lead once again, but OSU's Shelton did his job by limiting Flaggert to just a decision. That set the stage for Rosholt who was strong from the top position and rode OU's Brad Farmer for over three minutes. Rosholt got a third period takedown to seal the dual for the Cowboys.

"It took a little of the nervousness off," heavyweight Jared Rosholt said about receiving a penalty point in the first period. "You are able to relax a little more because you are up by a point. Just be smart and wrestle well from that point on. It felt good to lock up the win."

The difference in the score was the two major decisions that the Cowboys got from Coleman Scott and Nathan Morgan as the two teams each won five matches. All five of OU's victories were by decision.

The Cowboys will return to action on Wednesday in Minneapolis as they tangle with third-ranked Minnesota at 7 p.m. The match can be heard live on 93.7 FM with Rex Holt and Roger Moore providing the commentary.
