#5 Minnesota continues their dominance over the 12th ranked Huskers now winning for the 47th time in 66 matches as NU dropped a 28-14 decision. The Huskers pulled out the last two matches and seniors Craig Brester and Jordan Burroughs remained undefeated.
Brester won the second match of the dual at 197 pounds, pinning Minnesota’s Joe Nord in 1 minute, 10 seconds. The Howells, Neb., native got an early takedown and then pinned Nord to give the Huskers an early 6-3 lead. Brester remains undefeated this season (12-0) and now has six falls in 2009-10, accounting for nearly 30 percent of his career-pin total (22).
Following a mouth injury at last weekend’s Las Vegas Invitational, senior 157-pounder Jordan Burroughs made a strong comeback, using 11 takedowns to dominate Joe Grygelko en route to a 24-9 technical fall victory. Burroughs is unbeaten in his last 44 matches, including a 7-0 mark this season with four bonus-point wins.
