Greeley, Colorado - Despite Northern Colorado taking an early lead, ahead 15-6 at halftime, Sun Devil wrestling was able to overcome the deficit, winning five of the last six matches en route to a 24-19 victory.

For the third straight season under head coach Zeke Jones, the Sun Devils open the dual season with a win.

“Overall it was good to get our hand raised as a team,” said Jones. “We got hit in the mouth, so to speak, in the first half of the dual and the upper weights had to rally back. A lot of our wrestlers put the Sun Devil singlet on for the first time in the lineup, so it was mixed on how they responded.”
