OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. - The No. 3 Nebraska wrestling team won six matches, including two bonus-point wins, en route to a 22-13 upset of No. 2 Oklahoma State in front of 2,496 fans at the Ford Center in Oklahoma City, Okla. The Huskers? win snapped a 14-dual losing streak to the Cowboys as the Huskers improved to 10-2 on the year.

The Huskers? last win against OSU came 39-12 in Stillwater in 1993. The victory is just Nebraska's third all-time against the Cowboys.

Nebraska was led by junior Vince Jones and sophomore Jordan Burroughs, who both scored bonus-point wins. Jones pinned OSU?s Jack Jensen in 1:48 at 184 pounds to put the Huskers up 19-10 with two matches left. Jones earned his seventh pin of the year in high fashion to quiet the crowd. Jones took Jensen down halfway into the first period and caught him a cradle seconds later to earn the fall. Jones improves to 16-7 on the season and 8-2 in duals.

Burroughs scored 11 takedowns, including five in the first period, to score a 25-11 major decision over OSU?s Quinten Fuentes at 149 pounds. The win is Burroughs? ninth major decision of the year as he leads the Huskers in bonus-point wins.

Junior Paul Donahoe rebounded from a 2-2 weekend at National Duals with an 8-6 decision over OSU?s Tyler Shinn at 125 pounds. Donahoe was down 5-4 in the third period, but scored an escape and a takedown to earn the come-from-behind victory. Fellow junior Chris Oliver also went 2-2 last weekend and also earned a big win against the Cowboys. Oliver racked up 2:23 of riding time to win a close 3-2 decision over No. 15 Newly McSpadden at 157 pounds.

Junior Brandon Browne defeated second-ranked Brandon Mason at 174 to improve to 24-2, and Craig Brester won 6-3 over No. 20 Clayton Foster at 197 as the Huskers won three of the final four matches.

Nebraska resumes action on Feb. 2 as the Huskers host No. 11 Missouri for Alumni Night at 7 p.m. in the NU Coliseum.
