When the season began, the No. 10 Michigan wrestling team hoped it would be in the national title picture by this point in the year.
But after a loss to then-No. 14 Oklahoma and a seventh-place finish at the Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational, the Wolverines were looking to get back into the win column Thursday night against Michigan State.
The Wolverines (1-0 Big Ten, 4-1 overall) won the match handily, winning at eight out of the 10 lineup spots for a 39-6 victory at Cliff Keen Arena.
