NCAA Wrestling Championships 2012 Results: Penn State Still Leading After Two Sessions

Perhaps it'll happen after today's first or second session, but so far all of the number one seeds are still in place. And top seeds like Cornell's Kyle Dake or Penn State's David Taylor managed to advanced strictly by pinning opposition. American University's Ryan Flores, who entered the tournament first off the pigtail rounds, pinned all three opponents yesterday.

To note: Virginia Tech's Devin Carter at 133 was upset by Steve Keith, which is absolutely a monster upset. And it should be noted outside of Kellen Russell's expected dominance at 141, the entire weight class has been savaged by a host of upsets over seeded wrestlers.

Also of importance, there was bellyaching over where Stanford's Nick Amuchsategui was seeded and while he's advanced relatively easily, he has not looked overly impressive in his run. By contrast, Cornell's Cam Simaz has throttled opposition including a tech fall in his final match of the day.

Defending national champion Zach Rey has looked better after an early scare in the first round. A collision against Ryan Flores - which served as the national championship in last year's finals - will likely be seen in the semis this year.

MMA 'prospect' Chris Honeycutt of Edinboro is still in the tournament. He'll face Sonny Yohn of Minnesota in this morning's first round. That will serve as an important match for team points as the contest between Penn State and Minnesota heats up.
