Varner Pins To Seal 20-18 Iowa State Victory At OSU
STILLWATER, Okla. – Who is the nation's best collegiate wrestler? Some say Iowa State's defending NCAA 197-pound champion and U.S. Freestyle team member Jake Varner. Varner underscored his credentials Sunday, pinning sixth-rated Alan Gelogaev of Oklahoma State on the Cowboy's mat at 197 pounds to lead No. 2 Iowa State to 20-18 victory over No. 3 OSU in Gallagher-Iba Arena. The Cyclones improve to 9-2 in duals and 2-0 in Big 12 Conference action. The Cowboys fall to 8-2-1. It is Iowa State's fourth win in its last five matches against Oklahoma State.
