UNC vs Nebraska Wrestling 2021 Preview

Nebraska comes into the match following a strong showing at the Grand View Open last weekend.

Boo Dryden and Nathan Haas won individual titles at 133 and 184 pounds respectively. The Huskers took top-five finishes in seven weight classes.

North Carolina had a solid showing at the Wolfpack Wrestling Club Open on Sunday. Lachlan McNeil and Mason Phillips won individual titles at 141 and 149 pounds respectively.

The Tar Heels have been tested early with No. 8 Ohio State in a dual match on Nov. 7, a 23-12 loss. UNC also faced wrestlers from ranked squads No. 5 North Carolina State and No. 7 Virginia Tech at the Wolfpack open.

Nebraska hasn’t faced a ranked opponent yet. The Huskers wrestled Chardon State and Nebraska-Kearney in the Nebraska Duals on Nov. 11. The Huskers beat Chardon State 31-9 and Nebraska-Kearney 45-6.

“It’s important, we need to be tested,” Huskers head coach Mark Manning said about UNC according to Geoff Exstrom of the Lincoln Journal Star. “I think it just shows the culture of your team and what you need to work on. It’s early, our season’s long like basketball, it goes all the way to March. You’re never a finished product, you’ve got to have your ‘A’ game each time.”

Nebraska-UNC features several individual top-30 ranked matchups via InterMat Wrestling rankings.

At 133 pounds, UNC’s No. 10 Jaime Hernandez (2-0) will face Nebraska’s No. 30 Alex Thomsen (1-0) . In 141 pounds, Nebraska’s No. 5 Chad Red Jr. (1-0) will take on UNC’s No. 13 Kizhan Clarke (3-0).

UNC’s No. 6 Zach Sherman (2-1) faces Nebraska’s No. 14 Ridge Lovett (2-0) at 149 pounds if Jevon Parrish (1-0) doesn’t go instead for the Huskers. Tar Heels’ No. 2 Austin O’Connor (3-0) takes on Nebraska’s No. 16 Peyton Robb (1-0) at 157 pounds.

“We’re just trying to worry about Peyton,” Manning said per Exstrom. “He’s the toughest dude out there. We want him to walk on the mat and show us his will.”

The 174-pound match may also feature a top-five wrestler. Either No. 3 Mikey Labriola or Tahjae Jenkins-Harris will go for Nebraska against UNC’s No. 22 Gavin Kane (2-1) or Clay Lautt (0-2).

At 197 pounds, Nebraska’s No. 12 Eric Schultz (1-0) faces UNC’s No. 27 Max Shaw (0-1).

UNC and Nebraska have met 14 previous times. The Huskers lead the all-time series 13-2, including a Huskers win over the Tar Heels in 2018.

Wednesday’s match also marks the first anniversary of Husker wrestler Christian Miller’s passing. The junior died in a car accident in 2020. Nebraska will have a video tribute of Miller’s life before the match.
