Stevan Micic won his match 20-6 after a technical fall, though Michigan fell to Penn State.

An undefeated record under a new head coach. A potential number one ranking. Unrivaled clout going into postseason tournaments. A lot was riding on this Friday's wrestling meet in State College, PA.

The Michigan wrestling team upset No. 2 Ohio State on Saturday, 19-17.

Parris’ efforts were rewarded with the deciding victory in the meet, earning the Wolverines three team points and a 19-17 win.

Freshman Mason Parris took down Ohio State's Chase Singletary on Friday, helping Michigan to beat the second-ranked Buckeyes.

“Well, I obviously want to kill them every time. I want to win every single match, as a team. I want to blow them out and sweep them.”

I was once told you should never start a story with a quote, but I’m pretty sure I can’t convey the Michigan wrestling team’s feelings for Ohio State better than those words from Mason Parris.

The Michigan wrestling team moved to 7-0 with a win over Michigan State.

Including Micic’s match, the fifth-ranked Wolverines (7-0 overall, 3-0 Big Ten) cruised en route to six consecutive match wins, icing the dual in the process. After sophomore J.T. Correll at the 184-pound weight class was pinned, Michigan responded by squeezing out wins at 197 and heavyweight, finishing the dual with a 30-10 victory over Michigan State (4-5, 1-3).

Michigan beat Illinois 28-10 for its sixth-straight win to start the season.

Capped by Parris’ standout pin with one minute left in the third period, the No. 6 Michigan wrestling (6-0 overall, 2-0 Big Ten) defeated the No. 19 Illinois (2-2 overall, 1-1 Big Ten), 28-10, in a meet of gritty, low-scoring losses and one-sided, high-scoring matches for both teams.

Freshman Mason Parris has displayed maturity in replacing Adam Coon.

After watching 2018 graduate Adam Coon compile a 116-15 career record, Michigan fans had astronomical expectations for Parris, their freshman heavyweight wrestler. Standing at 6-foot-5 and weighing 265 pounds, Coon was more than just a massive physical presence — he served as an the icon of the program. His graduation left first-year coach Sean Bormet scrambling to replace the three-time All-American.

Enter Parris.

Freshman Mason Parris upset top-ranked heavyweight Amar Dhesi, spurring the Wolverines' victory.

It was New Years Eve and Reece Hughes was playing video games with his friends. With only a few hours until the new year, the sophomore was prepared for a night of some relaxed fun coming off of what had been a particularly grueling winter break of training.

Redshirt junior Jackson Striggow helped Michigan to its win over Indiana.

he Michigan wrestling team dominated Indiana, 32-7, in a contest riddled with bonus points, near falls and strong performances by several Wolverines.

Redshirt sophomore Kanen Storr defeated his opponent in Michigan's win over Indiana.

Scoring on an escape and a crafty two-point near fall to start the second period, Storr secured the win for his team.

Redshirt junior Logan Massa placed fourth at the Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational.

It was as dramatic an ending as anyone could’ve hoped for.
