No. 2 Penn State defeated Maryland wrestling 46-0 on Friday in the Terps’ first conference matchup of the season.
Coming into the match against the Nittany Lions, Maryland collected three victories in a row to close out December against Drexel, Duke and Navy. The Terps then traveled to the Southern Scuffle where they placed 13th with 43 points. At that event, 184-pound Kyle Cochran won the 2022 Southern Scuffle Title.
Cochran’s performance at the Southern Scuffle earned the No. 12-ranked wrestler Big Ten Wrestler of the Week.
Against Penn State, however, Cochran fell 19-7 against No. 1 Aaron Brooks.
The Terps could not find the victory, dropping their first Big Ten game of the season. They have the opportunity to get back on track in just a few days at the Virginia Duals taking place Jan. 14 and 15. Maryland will then face seven consecutive conference opponents before welcoming Columbia to the Xfinity Center Pavilion on Feb. 18.
