On Tuesday, the Big Ten announced its Wrestler of the Week and for the first time a Nittany Lion picked up the award.

Jason Nolf received the honor for the second time in his career after a perfect weekend. He cruised over the weekend with wins over two opponents ranked in the top 10.

He pinned No. 9 Jake Short in Friday’s win over Minnesota in 3:44. On Sunday, he got a 15-7 major decision over No. 3 Tyler Berger of Nebraska.
