Top NCAA Division I teams to vie for $100K in Florida
October 25th, 2021| Written by: Staff writer



Niceville, Florida is going to get a little meaner come December 20th and 21st.  Twelve of the country's best Division I NCAA wrestling teams will compete in the 2021 Collegiate Wrestling Duals at North Florida State's Raider Arena for a purse of $100,000.  The top three teams in the nation, Iowa, Penn State and Virginia Tech, will be joined by three more Top-10 teams, three more in the Top-25, three squads who received Top-25 votes, and some beavers.  These are not average beavers, though.   These are the Beavers of Oregon State.  They may not have any Top-25 team votes, but they have eight wrestlers who are ranked between #10 and #33.

Iowa (#1) Penn State (#2) Virginia Tech (#3) Missouri (#5) NC State (#7) Arizona State (T-#9)
Northern Iowa (#15) Central Michigan (#21) Rutgers (#26) Hostra (#30) LeHigh (#32) Oregon State (NR)

This is a dual meet tournament.  Wrestling starts at 9 a.m. on Friday and 12 noon on Saturday.

Tickets to the event are $75 for both days.  There will only be 2,100 general seats available.

Niceville, Florida, is approximately 250 miles east of New Orleans via Interstate 10 to Florida Highway 85 at Crestview, Florida (exit # 56).  Assuming the reader can find Interstate 10 and the state of Florida, "detail" maps to the event venue are provided below:
