Oklahoma State announced its wrestling schedule for the 2019-20 season Tuesday.
OSU will have eight home duals with half of them against Big 12 opponents: Oklahoma (Feb. 16), Northern Colorado (Jan. 12), West Virginia (Jan. 17) and South Dakota State (Jan. 31). The Cowboys’ four non-conference home duals will be against Minnesota (Nov. 24), Princeton (Dec. 6), Pittsburgh (Jan. 18) and Missouri (Feb. 2).
All eight home duals will be broadcasted on ESPN-plus.
OSU starts its season with back-to-back duals Nov. 15-16 in Pennsylvania at Drexel in Philadelphia and Lehigh in Bethlehem, respectively. The Cowboys return to Stillwater to face Minnesota and Princeton (Dec. 6) before visiting Bedlam rival OU on Dec. 15. OSU will not compete in the Reno Tournament of Champions due to the Bedlam dual.
The Cowboys will have two weeks off before competing in the Southern Scuffle on Jan. 1-2 in Chattanooga, Tennessee.
OSU resumes dual action against Northern Colorado on Jan. 12 then has two duals every weekend until Feb. 16 when it hosts OU. The Cowboys host WVU and Pittsburgh (Jan. 17-18), visits Northern Iowa and Iowa State (Jan. 25-26) and hosts South Dakota State and Missouri (Jan. 31, Feb. 2). The dual against Missouri is on Super Bowl Sunday.
One of the more interesting aspects of OSU’s schedule is a road doubleheader where the Cowboys visit Air Force at noon in Colorado Springs, Colorado, then travel north to face Wyoming at 7 p.m. in Laramie.
OSU wraps up dual action Feb. 23 against Iowa at Carver-Hawkeye Arena in Iowa City. The postseason begins March 7-8 in Tulsa at the Big 12 Championships, where the Cowboys will seek their eight straight conference title. The NCAA Championship is March 19-21 at U.S Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
