The dual started at 125 pounds with the first of six ranked vs. ranked matchups. #12 Jakob Camacho recorded four takedowns and a four-point near fall in the third period for a 15-6 major decision over #28 Curry.

Pitt got back-to-back wins to take a 6-4 lead after three bouts. #9 Phillippi used a third-period takedown and the ride time point for a 4-1 decision over #15 Kai Orine. At 141 pounds, #8 Matthews scored the lone takedown with 13 seconds left to down #21 Jack, 3-1.

#3 Tariq Wilson netted both takedowns in the bout at 149 pounds for the 6-3 decision. #9 Ed Scott used a takedown in the first and 1:10 of ride time for a 6-2 win at 157 pounds.
