Big Weekend Ahead For Husker Wrestling Team

By  | 

Saturday can't come soon enough for the Nebraska wrestling team. That's when the Huskers compete for a Big 12 Championship in front of their home crowd.

This year's conference meet is at the NU Coliseum, and wrestling on their home mats, the Huskers could come out on top with their first-ever Big 12 title.

"I just want that ring," NU Wrestler Jordan Burroughs says. "I think we all want that ring on our finger. We're all excited, and can't wait until this weekend to see what the outcome is."

"This conference is the toughest wrestling conference in the country," NU Wrestling Head Coach Mark Manning says. "So being a Big 12 Champion is a big deal, our guys know what's at stake."

Tickets are still available for the Big 12 Championships. Wrestling begins at 11 a.m. on Saturday, with the finals slated for a 7 p.m. start.
