In not-so-surprising fashion, the NC State wrestling team has started the season undefeated. However, what might be surprising are the three contributing freshmen, which are among this week’s wrestling takeaways.

NC State’s wrestling squad heads to Pittsburgh for the 2020 ACC Championship on March 8. Redshirt junior No. 2 Hayden Hidlay and redshirt junior No. 12 Tariq Wilson earned NC State’s lone one-seeds at 157 and 141 pounds, respectively.

The No. 5 NC State wrestling team continued its dominance and opened ACC play with a 28-9 victory against Virginia. The Wolfpack (11-0, 1-0 ACC) cruised by the Cavaliers (7-3, 0-1 ACC) with a couple of MMA legends, former two-division UFC Champion Daniel Cormier and former Bellator welterweight champion Ben Askren, in attendance. Having the two — both college wrestling legends — in Reynolds Coliseum was huge for NC State.
