I'm not plugged into wrestling news enough to know the starting lineups for either school or be able to write an analysis, so I'm going with what Intermat says are the starters and hoping for the best. Apologies if I've put any injured wrestlers in the lineup.
Winner of the pod will go on to face the winner of the other Blue Pool pod, #7 Iowa State at 8 pm tomorrow.
P.S. If you haven't read it, I recommend PSUinColo's FanPost on Cael Sanderson's Existential Challenge to Wrestling
