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.
