NU co-Big 12 wrestling champs

The 4th ranked Nebraska wrestling team earned a co-championship at the Big 12 Wrestling Championships, with four Huskers capturing individual titles. Nebraska finished the meet with 70 points to tie 3rd ranked Iowa State.
The crown was the first Big 12 Championship for Nebraska and the first conference wrestling crown for the Huskers since winning the 1995 Big Eight title. Iowa State’s tie for the title marked the third straight Big 12 crown for the Cyclones. The championship was also the first Big 12 title for a Nebraska men’s team in any sport since the Huskers shared the 2007 Big 12 indoor track and field title.
Missouri finished third with 55 points, followed by Oklahoma State with 40 points and Oklahoma at 38.5.
Juniors Jordan Burroughs (157) and Craig Brester (197), along with seniors Brandon Browne (174) and Vince Jones (184) captured individual titles for Nebraska. The titles for Burroughs and Browne marked the second straight Big 12 crowns for each. The four conference champions ties for the most in school history. NU also had four champions in 1949 and 1995.
