Before the Nebraska Huskers battle the Wisconsin Badgers at 7pm, four top 5 teams from class A, B and C will scrap in the Bob Devaney Center. At 5pm, Columbus will face Valentine on one mat, while Skutt Catholic will face Plattsmouth on the other one.

A#3 Columbus vs C#1 Valentine

Top Potential Matchups:
113- #4 Carter Kucera (COL) vs 113 #1 Gage Krolikowski (VAL)
152- #5 Carson Zwingman (COL) vs 170 #2 Caleb Long (VAL)
170- unranked Zach Baldwin (COL) vs 170 #3 DJ Stephen (VAL)
195- #1 Colton Wolfe (COL) vs 195 #3 Dean Haase (VAL)
285- #2 Cy Marshall (COL) vs 285 #3 Jared Fulton (VAL)

Battles in the lower weights, middle weights and upper weights should make this an exciting dual between cross class teams who are top 3 in their respective classes. 195 and 285 should be exciting with every wrestler is ranked 3rd or higher.

B#2 Skutt Catholic vs B#5 Plattsmouth

Top Potential Matchups:
106- #2 Caleb Lazure (SC) vs #1 Chase Larsen (PL)
113- #6 Joey Orsi (SC) vs #3 Anthony Long (PL)

In this dual, two weight classes feature the top 2 ranked wrestlers in class B. Larsen is the lone returning state placer in 106B and freshman Lazure has been consistent in his freshman campaign. Nielsen and Meink won class B state titles at 113 and 120 respectively and will clash at 126. Nielsen has signed with the Nebraska Cornhuskers and Meink has signed with the Campbell Camels.
