Maryland wrestling collected its second conference win of the season when it took down Michigan State on Sunday afternoon, 28-15.

The Terps (4-6, 2-5 Big Ten) had lost four consecutive duals before Sunday’s triumph, which marked their fourth-ever Big Ten win and first time winning multiple Big Ten duals in a single season since joining the league.

Maryland got out ahead early, 6-0, following a forfeit, and never looked back. Braxton Brown’s win by technical fall extended the Terps’ lead to double digits.

Following a Michigan State victory at 141 pounds, Ethen Miller provided another technical fall victory to replenish a 13-point advantage for the Terps.

Dominic Solis delivered Maryland a crucial sudden-death victory in his 174-pound bout before Jaxon Smith sealed the deal by beating Kael Wisler by way of technical fall.

The Terps will conclude conference play next weekend when they travel to take on No. 14 Rutgers.
