The Missouri wrestling team beat Central Michigan 29-12 on Saturday night at the NWCA National Duals in Cedar Falls, Iowa, to earn the Tigers a chance to wrestle in the fifth-place match at the 16-team tournament.

Missouri opened the event Saturday morning with a 27-9 victory over Northern Iowa, but fell to Cornell 18-15 in the next round, setting up the third-round match against Central Michigan.  

Against the Chippewas, the Tigers won seven of the 10 matches and scored bonus points in four of their wins, including a pin from Todd Schavrien at 141 pounds. Zach Toal got a major decision at 165 pounds, and Mike Larson (184 pounds) and Brent Haynes (197 pounds) both earned technical falls.  

No. 8 seed Missouri will take on No. 5 seed Boise State at 9 a.m. Sunday with the winner facing the winner of another fourth-round match between unseeded Iowa State and No. 2 seed Oklahoma State in the fifth-place match.
