GREELEY, Colo. – The No. 14 Oklahoma wrestling team earned its second win of the weekend, downing Northern Colorado, 35-6, on Sunday afternoon inside Bank of Colorado Arena.

The Sooners (8-4 overall, 4-1 Big 12) used six bonus-point wins for their third straight contest scoring 30-or-more points. The win also capped off a 7-1 record in the month of January for Oklahoma.

Jacob Rubio got the first win of the afternoon for the Sooners, downing UNC’s Rico Montoya by 7-1 decision. Rubio struck first, connecting for a takedown early in the first period and held on to a 2-1 lead entering the final frame. He tacked on an escape, a takedown and a penalty point in the third and added the riding-time point to tie the dual at 3-3.

Box scored first and led 2-1 after the opening period, but Longo escaped and countered with a takedown of his own for a 4-2 advantage entering the final period. Longo registered a 2-point nearfall and the riding-time point in the third to give the Sooners a 6-3 advantage.

Sophomore Davion Jeffries took control of the 149-pound matchup, dominating Ben Polkowske by 18-1 technical fall in five minutes. Jeffries tallied three takedowns, two 4-point nearfalls and a 2-point nearfall en route to the bonus-point victory.

Clark Glass kept the momentum rolling for Oklahoma, downing Tyler Kinn by 10-2 major decision in the 157-pound bout. Glass held a 2-0 lead after the opening frame and tacked on two more and an escape in the second for a 7-1 advantage. Glass secured another takedown and the riding-time point to give the Sooners a 15-3 lead heading into intermission.

In the 174-pound bout, Matt Reed got the win by fall in 2:59 over Tommy Chisholm to put Oklahoma up 21-6. The redshirt senior led 14-0 at the time of the fall by way of a takedown and three straight 4-point nearfalls.

Andrew Dixon tallied a 10-2 major decision over Tanner Davis in the 184-pound matchup. Dixon led 3-1 after the opening two periods and added a takedown and a 4-point nearfall in the third. His 2:10 in riding time secured the bonus-point victory for the Sooners.

At 197 pounds, redshirt senior Brad Johnson secured the Sooners’ fifth bonus-point win of the night in an 11-2 major decision over Jamarcus Grant. Johnson held a 6-0 advantage through two frames and added two takedowns and the riding-time point in the final period.

Redshirt senior Ross Larson earned his third consecutive win by fall in the heavyweight match with a pin in 2:59 over Jack Kuck. Larson connected on a late takedown and turned Kuck with a second remaining to set the final score at 35-6.
