STILLWATER, Okla. ? In a matchup of two teams expected to compete for the NCAA wrestling title next month, Oklahoma State handed No. 8 Boise State a 28-6 beating at Gallagher-Iba Arena on Friday. OSU won eight of the 10 bouts, with Cowboys Jordan Oliver, Jamal Parks and Chris Perry all securing wins over Bronco wrestlers ranked in the top three nationally in their respective weight classes.

*

With the win, the Cowboys improved to 13-2-1 overall. Boise State dipped to 10-3-0 overall with the loss.

*

The feature bout of the evening came at 133 pounds, where top-ranked Oliver bagged two takedowns and an escape to hand No. 2 Andrew Hochstrasser a 5-2 defeat in a bout that some view as an NCAA finals preview.

* ?Every match I approach the same,? Oliver said. ?I just want to go out there and put points on the board because that is my style. I just go out and create action and get guys to wrestle. Hopefully, the next time we meet up, if we do, I can go out and keep the action up and have a higher scoring match."

*

Parks followed Oliver?s win with a 3-1 triumph over No. 3 Jason Chamberlain in sudden victory. After a scoreless first period, the two wrestlers traded escapes to start the second and third periods, respectively. After the clock hit zeroes to end regulation, Parks scored the winning takedown with 27 seconds left in the sudden victory period.

*

"I knew I needed to get a takedown. I just knew I wasn't going to let this match get away from me,? Parks said. ?It gives me confidence, I have a lot of confidence in myself, my coaches have confidence, and my teammates have confidence in me, so I know I can do it. All I need to do is put it all together and it is coming together really well."

*

Perry beat top-ranked Kirk Smith by injury default in the third period. After a scoreless first period, Perry slapped a suffocating full-period ride on the returning national runner-up for the duration of the second period, then escaped to open the scoring just five seconds into the third period. Perry then immediately shot back in on Smith and continued to take the action to the Bronco star until he fell to the ground with an apparent leg injury and was forced to default the bout to Perry. Smith was helped off the mat and to the locker room area by two people and received a standing ovation from the Gallagher-Iba Arena crowd.

*

"I have wrestled him several times and it is a match, he is the No. 1 guy in the country and he was a national finalist,? Perry said. ?I feel like I am peaking right now. It is getting close to Big*12's and nationals and I am just trying to turn it on more and more each time.?

*

Things don?t get any easier for Perry, who is scheduled to face No. 3 Joe LeBlanc when the Cowboys host Wyoming at 2 p.m. Sunday.

*

?I have another big one on Sunday when I wrestle a two-time All-American,? Perry said. ?It will be another great match up that I have to get up for."
