Wrapping up a Cowgirls-Cowboys doubleheader, the University of Wyoming wrestling team hosts Big 12 rival North Dakota State for a 5 p.m. dual on Saturday at Arena-Auditorium.

The No. 21 Cowboys placed 11th at the Cliff Keen Las Vegas Invitational last weekend, tied with No. 11 Virginia Tech, No. 15 Northwestern, No. 16 Cornell and No. 18 Illinois. Montorie Bridges (sixth), Sam Turner (eighth), Branson Ashworth (fifth) and Brian Andrews (seventh) all placed in the top eight.

North Dakota State has opened its dual season with three straight wins on the strength of three ranked grapplers. Two of those will go against a pair of Wyoming's best. No. 13 Andrew Fogarty at 165 pounds is scheduled to wrestle Ashworth while No. 15 Cam Sykora (133) is scheduled to wrestle Bridges.
