Senior Josh Ihnen will be making his fourth NCAA appearance after finishing eighth at 184 pounds last season. He is the No. 8 seed after a fourth-place finish at the Big Ten Championships and is set to grapple NDSU’s MacKain Stoll in the first round. Ihnen is 24-6 and leads the team in technical falls with six this season.
Last year at the NCAA Championships, Nebraska tied for 21st with 28 points. Eight Huskers qualified for the tournament as Ihnen and team mate James Green earned All-America honors in 2012.
