BUFFALO, NY – The University at Buffalo wrestling team will host Northern Illinois on Friday afternoon in search of its fifth straight win. Due to a scheduling conflict, the dual will be held at the Ed Wright Practice Facility at Alumni Arena and will start at 2 pm.
Buffalo is 11-4 overall and 4-2 in Mid-American Conference duals on the season. A win over Northern Illinois would tied the school record for dual wins in a season as a Division I program and would be UB's fifth conference win on the year – also a program record.
Northern Illinois is 8-9 in duals on the season and is coming off a 26-7 win at Cleveland State last Saturday. The Huskies are led by Brit Wilson at 174 lbs. The freshman is 22-4 overall and ranked 15th in the nation.
It will be the 20th meeting between the schools. Northern Illinois leads the all-time series, 12-7. The Huskies won last year's meeting, 19-16, at Alumni Arena.
Friday's dual is scheduled to start at 2 pm. A free video stream of the dual is available by clicking here.
