The Sooners didn't crown any champions in the Big 12 tournament and finished in 3rd place. OU was a close second to OSU prior to the finals, but OU is sending 8 wrestlers to the NCAA tournament. OU's strongest All American candidates this year are Tyler Caldwell at 165 and Zack Bailey at 141.
The Sooners wrapped up their dual season with a 13-2-1 record, both losses to OSU's highly ranked Cowboys. Let's wish the guys good luck in the wrestling's "big dance" and hope they finish in the NCAAs as well as they did their dual season.
