RELATED LINKS
For a second straight week junior Jordan Oliver (Oklahoma State) was named the Big 12 Wrestler of the Week for matches from Feb. 13-19. He helped the Cowboys claim the Big 12 regular season title and a runner up finish in the National Dual Finals by recording three major decisions over players ranked in the top 11.

Last season, Oliver became the first Big 12 wrestler to be honored three times in one season. His two consecutive awards this season give him five for his career.

WRESTLER OF THE WEEK
Jordan Oliver, Oklahoma State, Jr., 133, Easton, Pa.
Oliver, ranked No. 1 at 133 pounds, opened his week of competition with a key 11-2 bonus-point victory over Oklahoma's Jordan Keller on the way to a one-point Cowboy win at No. 12 OU.

In Sunday's competition at the NWCA National Duals Final Four, he downed fourth-ranked B.J. Futrell of Illinois, 15-1, on the way to a 19-15 team win over the fifth-ranked Illini. The defending NCAA champion wrapped up the day with an 11-3 win over eighth-ranked Chris Dardanes as the Cowboys came up just short in their bid for a ninth NWCA National Duals title with an 18-13 loss to No. 3 Minnesota.

Oliver now holds a 21-1 record on the year and is 82-5 in his career. He leads the Cowboys this season with 20 bonus-point wins, 14 falls, 83 dual team points, 73 dual takedowns and 16 dual nearfalls.
