Grand Prairie, Texas--- The No. 16 Nebraska wrestling team won all three duals they participated in on Saturday, Jan. 15, at the Lone Star duals in Grand Prairie, Texas. The Huskers, who defeated Utah Valley earlier in the first session of the day, defeated Stanford and Brown in the afternoon to improve their season record to 9-2.

In their match against Stanford, the Huskers used a technical fall victory from No. 11 Tucker Lane (NU) to rally back and defeat the Cardinal by a 19-17 count. Entering the 184-pound match trailing by three team points, the Huskers' Josh Ihnen (184) tied the dual with his 2-1 victory over Spence Patrick (Stan.).* NU couldn't pull ahead in the next match as senior Andy Johnson (NU) fell to No. 10 Zack Giesen (Stan.) by a 10-4 decision to give the Cardinal a three-point lead.

With the Huskers needing a bonus-point victory to win the dual, Lane came through for the Huskers by defeating Alen Yen (Stan.), 18-2, in the heavyweight bout. The dual-clinching victory gave Lane his first technical fall of the season.

Earlier in the dual, Ridge Kiley (NU) got the Huskers their first three points with his upset of No. 18 Justin Paulsen (Stan.) in second sudden-victory period, while Mike Koehnlein (NU) picked up his second victory of the day by taking down Jordan Gray (Stan.) at 141-pounds. Jordan Burroughs was the other Husker to get a win as he defeated Garrett Schaner (Stan) by technical fall, 24-7.

In their last dual of the night, the Huskers jumped on the Brown Bears right out of the gate by winning the first three matches. David Klingsheim (125), Kiley (133) and Koehnlein (141) gave the Huskers a 10-0 lead, before Brown's Giuseppi Lanzi defeated Ross Grande to put the Bears on the scoreboard.

After Grande's defeat, the Huskers won the last six matches of the dual, with four of those being bonus point victories. Burroughs pinned Dave Foxen (BU) for his sixth pin of the season, while Cody Compton (NU) defeated Pat Labuz (BU) at the 157-pound match for his first victory of the day. The Huskers also got major decision victories from Kolb, Ihnen and Lane to round out the action. Burroughs, Lane and Ihnen all went 3-0 on the day for Nebraska.

The Huskers return to action on Friday, Jan. 21, when they will travel to Madison, Wisc., to take on the Wisconsin Badgers at 7 p.m. The match against the Badgers will be available on the Big Ten Network.
