Nebraska’s Stephen Dwyer (174) and Craig Brester (197) each won their semifinals matches during the first session of the 2010 Big 12 Championship on Saturday afternoon in Norman, Oklahoma and will now battle for conference championships.
Dwyer who was the No. 1 seed at 174 pounds, won a 2-1 decision over Iowa State’s Duke Burk to reach the finals for the third straight year. Brester will defend his 197-pound title after a 6-1 semifinal win over Oklahoma’s Eric Lapotsky. Brester will wrestle Iowa State’s top-ranked Jake Varner in the finals. Brester defeated Varner in last year’s Big 12 title match, but has dropped the last two meetings.
