Win makes Graff an All-American

With a win in the wrestlebacks, redshirt freshman and No. 8 seed Tyler Graff earned All-American status at 133 lbs. Graff defeated Mike Grey of Cornell, 13-5, to guarantee a finish no worse than eighth.

Graff took control early, scoring three takedowns in the first period to lead 6-2 after the first three minutes.

Starting in neutral in the second period, Graff scored a takedown with 1:01 remaining. Grey escaped to make it 8-3 after two periods.

Starting the third period on bottom, Grey escaped eight seconds into the frame, but Graff took him back down with 1:15 to go. Another escape by Grey was followed by another takedown from Graff with 12 seconds to go. With 1:25 of riding time, Graff came away with a 13-5 win.

He will wrestle No. 5 Borislav Novachkov of Cal Poly in the sixth round. They met once earlier this year at the Cliff Keen Invite with Novachkov winning 5-2.
