Wrestling: What to know for 2021-22 season

With the season a couple of weeks underway, the University of Wisconsin wrestling team has given fans a preview of what to expect for the rest of the season. The Badgers earned a 30-3 victory over the University of Buffalo to open up their season in style at the UW Field House.

Fans in attendance saw some familiar faces back on the mat this season earning early wins against the University of Buffalo. Eric Barnett (125 lbs), an All-American last season, started his quest to get back on the podium at Nationals with a hard-fought 3-2 win.

Other veteran Badgers also started their season off with a bang, including Garrett Model (157 lbs) and Trent Hillger (285 lbs).
