Maryland wrestler Kyle Cochran was locked into a close 184-pound bout with No. 3 Michigan’s Joseph Walker Sunday afternoon. A third period escape by Cochran — who was the team’s 165-pounder last season — earned him a hard-fought 3-2 decision.
The three points Maryland wrestling was awarded from that win were the only ones it put on the board, as the Wolverines won every other match and rolled to a 38-3 victory in the season-opening dual at the Xfinity Center Pavilion.
For the Terrapins, this loss was nothing new — the team has totaled just four wins in its last two seasons. And all four came in non-conference matches.
Since joining the Big Ten conference in the 2014-15 season, Maryland is just 1-54 in Big Ten play. The year’s truncated slate features only conference matchups, which continues next Saturday as the Terps head to a tri-meet with Michigan State and Minnesota.
