The magic number for the Penn State wrestling team on Sunday was 10.

The team won 10 out of 10 bouts on the way to its tenth victory of the season.

The Nittany Lions wrapped up their weekend in Michigan on Sunday in East Lancing, shutting out Michigan State 35-0.

How It Happened

Junior Jordan Conaway, No. 8 at 125, started off the action for the Lions and made quick work of his opponent, winning 13-6 and picking up a point with 1:36 in riding time. Up next was sophomore Jimmy Gulibon, No. 9 at 133, who faced off against Garth Yenter. Up 2-0 after one period, Gulibon chose down to start the second where he couldn't escape Yenter's ride for a more than a minute. Gulibon eventually escaped to a 3-0 lead and would go on to win 4-0 with 1:33 in riding time.

Redshirt freshman Kade Moss battled back and forth with Terry Turner at 141. Tied at 8-8, Moss countered on a Turner single with five seconds left in the third to win 10-8.

At 184, No. 17 redshirt freshman Matt McCutcheon coupled a few reversals and takedowns on his way to an 8-2 victory.
