Sunday, January 9, 2011 | 6:38 p.m. CST

It wasn't an easy path, but the Missouri wrestling team achieved its goal of finishing in fifth place Sunday at the NWCA National Duals in Cedar Falls, Iowa.

The Tigers beat No. 6 Boise State 21-12 in the morning, and they followed with a 21-19 upset of No. 2 Oklahoma State in the afternoon.

After two matches, Missouri trailed 9-0 to the Cowboys. Missouri's 165-pounder Zach Toal tied the match at 12 with a 6-5 decision. Oklahoma State would later reclaim the lead 19-18. The heavyweight match would proved to be the decisive one. Dom Bradley won the match for the Tigers with a 6-1 decision. 

Toal and Bradley also had big wins in the Boise State match.
