Labriola up in the consolations. Schulz up in championship semis. Another Penn State matchup. We hold a 1 point edge over Penn State for 2nd right now. But, they have 8 still going in the championship bracket to our 1.
Jensen wins 6-1. That's it for the main brackets. There are still a few matches in the 9th place brackets (first round losers). Not sure if those score for the team or not?
Standings heading into tomorrow's consolation semifinals and championship matches. All 10 Nebraska wrestlers are still in consolation semifinals except Schulz (going for the championship) and Lovett (wrestling for 7th).
I have to give a shoutout to BTN+. Cameras on each of the 4 matches, so you can choose what to watch. FLO wrestling's website made it easy to see what matches were upcoming for the team.
Tomorrow's Matchups (someone may have a better, more organized source than this):
All are consolation semis and will wrestle twice tomorrow for finishes anywhere from 3rd -6th, except 133 and 197 as noted.

The Huskers' entire lineup advanced to quarterfinal matches and Eric Schultz (197) will compete for an individual title on Sunday afternoon. That means our entire lineup can possibly place in the top 8, out of 14. And, they all could possibly go to the NCAA championships.
