BOISE, Idaho – Mike Mangrum and Clayton Jack each won their 29th bouts of the season and Oregon State scored the final seven points in an 18-16 win over Boise State Friday night.
Taylor Meeks teamed with Jack to win via decision and major decision at 197 pounds and heavyweight, respectively, to pull the Beavers out from a five-point deficit to a two-point win. Meeks was a 6-0 winner over Brent Chriswell which was followed by Jack’s 15-5 major decision over J.T. Felix.

That 4-0 lead was pushed to 4-3 when Shawn Jones defeated James Roberts, 4-2, at 133 pounds.
