On Sunday — immediately after No. 1 Penn State wrestling (10-0, 3-0 Big Ten) took down the 3rd-ranked Michigan Wolverines — the Nittany Lions welcomed No. 20 Michigan State (7-4, 0-4 Big Ten) to Rec Hall in University Park, PA.

Just as we saw against No. 3 Michigan, Penn State wrestling dominated the Spartans and walked off with an impressive blowout victory. The Nittany Lions improve to 10-0 overall and are still undefeated in Big Ten play this year. Additionally, Penn State added its 6th ranked win of the season before hosting No. 2 Iowa in its next dual meet of the season.

Penn State wrestling trounces Michigan State, 34-6

On Friday, Penn State beat No. 3 Michigan by 22 points at the Bryce-Jordan Center. The Nittany Lions’ 30-8 win was impressive, but there was little time to bask in the win before the 20th-ranked Spartans came to town. Once again, head coach Cael Sanderson had Penn State focused and ready, and the Nittany Lions again ran a ranked opponent out of the building.

Penn State’s 34-6 win was its 6th ranked win of the season — the Nittany Lions also boast a 4-0 home record, a 3-0 road record, and a 3-0 neutral site record thus far in 2022-23.
