KENT, Ohio - Kent State will have a chance to take down No. 1 Oklahoma State in wrestling.
The Golden Flashes will host the undefeated Cowboys on Saturday as part of the NWCA National Duals. On Sunday, Wisconsin will battle Northern Iowa (8-4) with the winners then meeting to advance to an eight-team championship dual tournament at Minnesota on Feb. 22-23.
This is the first time Kent State has hosted a top-ranked team in any sport since 2006, when Wake Forest's field hockey team came to Ohio.
Kent State has gone 108-36-1 in dual meets over the past eight seasons, but will have a tough time with Oklahoma State. The Cowboys have won 14 straight dual meets and finished sixth in the NCAA championships last season.
