Senior Morgan McIntosh (Santa Ana, Calif.), ranked No. 1 at 197, thrilled many friends and family with a pin of Stanford’s Boomer Fleming. The California native got the fall at the 4:11 mark of the second period. Stanford’s Josh Marchak received a forfeit victory at 285 and the Nittany Lions led 13-9 heading to intermission.

Senior Nico Megaludis (Murrysville, Pa.), ranked No. 4 at 125, dominated No. 18 Connor Schram, posting a 7-1 win with 2:04 in riding time while forcing Schram into four stall warnings. Senior Jordan Conaway (Abbottstown, Pa.), ranked No. 8 at 133, took care of Mason Pengilly with a 10-4 decision to put Penn State up 19-9 with three bouts left. Junior Jimmy Gulibon (Latrobe, Pa.), ranked No. 5 at 141, dropped a tough 7-3 decision to No. 4 Joey McKenna for Stanford’s last win of the dual. Sophomore Zain Retherford (Benton, Pa.), ranked No. 2 at 149, pinned Paul Fox from the neutral position at 6:35 to clinch the dual and put Penn State up 25-12. Red-shirt freshman Jason Nolf (Yatesboro, Pa.), ranked No. 4 at 157, closed out the dual with a takedown clinic (11 takedowns in just over two periods) before pinning Ryerson Dempsey at the 5:24 mark. The final fall gave Penn State the 31-12 victory.

Penn State moves to 4-0 on the year while Stanford now sits at 2-1. Penn State dominated the match from start to finish, winning seven of the nine contested bouts and rolling to a 30-5 takedown edge. Penn State picked up 10 bonus points off three pins (McIntosh, Retherford, Nolf) and a major (Nickal).
