NWCA Natonal Duals predictions

Penn State's presence in the Virginia Duals isn't stopping us from predicting the NWCA National Duals. Here's how we see the two-day event, which begins Saturday in Cedar Falls, Iowa, unfolding?

First Round

Cornell over Ohio State; Missouri over Northern Iowa; Boise State over Iowa State; Minnesota over Northern Illinois; Wisconsin over South Dakota State; Oregon State over American; Central Michigan over Virginia Tech; Oklahoma State over Purdue


Cornell over Missouri; Boise State over Minnesota; Oregon State over Wisconsin; Oklahoma State over Central Michigan (Yes, we feel two teams from the West can make the semifinals.)


Cornell over Boise State; Oklahoma State over Oregon State


Oklahoma State over Cornell (Tough one to call. A national duals title would be a nice accomplishment for Cornell coach Rob Koll and 184-pounder Steve Bosak, a pair of former State College High School stars. But the Cowboys can win four of the first five weights.)
