We know so much about B1G wrestlers that it’s hard to find dark horses. I scoured WrestleStat for some possibilities. Thanks Greg and Dan. For the purposes of this article I’m picking guys below the 4 seed that I think are most likely to make the finals.
125lbs. I’m so confident in Nicky “no stache” Suriano coming out of the top side that I’m only looking at the bottom bracket. I think that #6 Drake Ayala, in the 6 hole has the best chance to bust a bracket and get to the finals. Barnett lost to #7 DeAugustino earlier in the season. Ayala has the skill set to game plan effectively to beat Drew Hildebrandt.
