149: Jake Hodges (UNI) vs Justin Oliver (CMU)
1st: Alright Heffernan is out for CMU, which makes Hodges match here a little bit easier. Tie ups to start, Hodges tries to throw a double underhook, nothing, Oliver with a weird single leg, he elevates it, but Hodges fights out and Oliver is right back in it, but hodges out again. Hodges works for a shot, nothing, Halfway through the period. Not a whole lot, collar ties, and now Oliver is in on a single leg deep, sits Hodges down and there’s the T2. 2-0 Oliver leads with 45 seconds left. Restart after they go OOB, Hodges up, back down, up again, back down again. Oliver with a lot of forward pressure, keeping Hodges down, now he tripods up but time runs out, 2-0 Hodges trails going to the 2nd.
2nd: Hodges takes down, and he’s given up RT now, Oliver working a tilt, nothing yet, Hodges sits out and nearly gets the R2 but gets the E1, 2-1 now Oliver leads, Hodges looking for a single but can’t get there. Back on our feet with 1:10 left. Oliver with another single leg, and not a clean T2 but a T2 nonetheless, it’s 4-1 Oliver with 55 seconds left in the period. Restart, Oliver again with a ton of forward pressure but he’s not working, so he gets a stall warning. 32 seconds on the restart. Hodges hits a switch right off the whistle to get the E1, 4-2 now but Oliver has 1:42 of RT. Nothing else in the period and we go to the third.
3rd:Oliver is up right off the whistle and gets the E1, he still has RT. Double leg try for Oliver and he switches to a single and gets the T2. Tilt for oliver on the edge gets nothing, OOB restart.

157: #20 Bryce Steiert (UNI) vs #12 Luke Smith (CMU)
1st: Headfakes to start, Steiert with a nice half shot, really faked out Smith there. Smith is quite a bit taller than Steiert. Not a lot of action yet, Steiert really working the head fakes, now he’s in on a single leg, but Smith breaks it, now they’re side by side, Steiert is just trying to bail but Smith is holding onto Steiert’s arm and won’t let him go, now we get a break. One minute left in the period. Not a lot else, collar ties, Smith with a fake shot, nothing, Steiert with a shot, too far away, Smith a reshot, too far. That’s the first. 0-0.
2nd:Smith is on bottom to start, he’s up and out in 5 seconds. 1-0 he leads. Smith with a single leg, he’s in deep, Steiert doing a good job of going heavy on the head, he’s got the leg cradle and nearly flips Smith over but nothing, no points, and the hold is broken and a stalemate is called. Schwab is MAD about that, and to be fair so is Borrelli. Restart, collar ties again, 20 seconds left in the period. Smith rides really tough so it will be interesting to see if Steiert choses down or not. To the third.
3rd: Steiert goes neutral to start the third, he’s in on a single leg and has Smith on his butt, but Smith has an ankle of Steiert’s, they come up, scrambling still, Steiert comes up on top and turns but no points yet, one minute left, and Steiert nearly has Smith on his back TWICE, WOW 40 seconds left, now they’re in a pass, and Steiert’s on top, trying to get his leg back, he can’t 20 seconds left and the ref calls another stalemate. Mark Schwab is VERY unhappy now. Restart, Steiert tries to get in on another shot but can’t get there, UNI crowd and coaches want a stall call, but nothing, and Steiert can’t get in on a shot, and that’s the match.

Restart, Foster is on his belly, now up to a tripod and gets the E1 with 1:01 of RT on the clock. And as I type that Ellingwood gets a T2 and nearly gets the NF2 but the official doesn’t give it to him, Foster rolls through and gets the E1 right away, it’s 4-3 now for Ellingwood. Not sure why CMU isn’t challenging that, but whatever. Foster gets in on a shot but Ellingwood circles around for the T2, wow that was fast. They roll OOB restart.

Tie up, Jauch with a reach, nothing, now he dives in for a single leg and they roll around but Horan comes out on top, and Jauch is hurt bad as Schwab is out on the mat yelling at the official that he’s hurt. They’re reviewing something now, while Jauch takes injury time. Jauch is up but they’re reviewing the action still. Ok after review there wasn’t a takedown, so it’s 3-3 still. Horan gets to choose though after Jauch’s injury time, 5 seconds left. Horan rolls through and gets the E1 as the buzzer sounds, crowd boos the heck out of CMU and the officials.
Match Score: 4-3
