On the merits of two victories over top-20 opponents on Sunday, junior Jordan Oliver (Oklahoma State) was named the Big 12 Wrestler of the Week for matches from Feb. 6-12. The pair of individual victories by the No. 1 player in the 133-pound weight division propelled OSU to wins over No. 10 Wyoming (28-7) and No. 6 Ohio State (25-6) as the Cowboys earned a spot in the NWCA National Dual Finals.

Last season, Oliver became the first Big 12 wrestler to be honored three times in one season, making this his fourth career honor.
