Penn State wrestling: Taylor earns Big Ten weekly honor

Penn State senior David Taylor was named the Big Ten’s Wrestler of the Week on Tuesday following another dominant weekend on the mat.

The top-ranked wrestler at 165 pounds, according to Intermat, posted a 5-0 record at the Binghamton Open on Sunday, winning four bouts by first-period pin and the other by an 18-2 technical fall. He won the championship match with a pin in 1:51.

The three-time All-American has 41 career pins and 105 career wins.

Taylor and the rest of the No. 1 Nittany Lions visit Rider on Saturday to open the regular-season schedule.
