Ohio State wrestling trolls Michigan on social media following rivalry win
Ohio State wrestling headed into enemy territory Friday night, taking on archrival Michigan in a key top-10 wrestling showdown. The No. 5 Buckeyes took on the No. 7 Wolverines squared off in a key conference showdown, but the bragging rights up for grabs are of equal importance in the rivalry.
When it was all wrapped up, Ohio State came away with a 23-15 win over Michigan in the Crisler Center. The win moves the Buckeyes to 10-1 on the season while the Wolverines fall to 8-2.
After the win, the Buckeyes had to flex their “W” with some flair on social media. Check it out:

At 125 pounds, Ohio State’s Malik Heinselman returned from injury and beat Jack Medley in a 4-3 decision. The Buckeyes would go on to build a 14-0 lead with impressive wins by Jesse Mendez (133 pounds), Dylan D’Emilio (141) and Sammy Sasso (149).
From there, Michigan would rally with 9 straight points with Cameron Amine scoring 6 in a fall over Carson Kharchla, but it was too much for the Wolverines to overcome. The Buckeyes would rattle off 9 straight points in consecutive decisions by Ethan Smith, Kaleb Romero and Gavin Hoffman to put the match out of reach.
