Heels Head To Nebraska For Pair Of Duals
Release: 11/16/2012

The North Carolina wrestling team will return to dual action this weekend when the Tar Heels travel to Lincoln, Neb. to take on South Dakota State and Nebraska.

The Tar Heels return to action after a successful showing at the Wolfpack Open a week ago. Carolina will look to get on the winning track in dual matches after dropping a narrow 21-16 decision to Arizona State this past Friday in Chapel Hill.

Carolina will open action Sunday morning at 10 a.m. CT against South Dakota State before taking on the host No. 14 Nebraska at 12 noon CT. The Tar Heels have taken on Nebraska in each of the past two seasons.

The Tar Heels enter the weekend with three ranked wrestlers with Nathan Kraisser at No. 16 (125), Evan Henderson at No. 17 (141) and Alex Utley at No. 20 (184). Nebraska boasts four ranked wrestlers at 149, 157, 174 and 184.
