SCSU-MSU To Battle For NSIC Wrestling Title

Two top-10 NCAA Division II wrestling teams will clash on Thursday, February 14 when top-ranked St. Cloud State hosts rival Minnesota State-Mankato. The match is the final dual of the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC) season. It will stream live online from Halenbeck Hall beginning at 7 PM.

St. Cloud State (20-0 overall; 7-0 NSIC) will try to complete an undefeated season and conference title, but it won't be easy. 10th-ranked Minnesota State-Mankato (9-2 overall; 6-0 NSIC) is also chasing a conference championship, undefeated in league duals. The Mavericks will close out their regular season schedule on February 15 against Northern State.

The Huskies will carry a 46-straight dual match victory streak in their quest to win their 1st NCAA Division II wrestling team championship. SCSU finished runner-up in each of the past two years losing to Nebraska-Omaha.
