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.
