Juniors Robert Kokesh (174 pounds), James Green (157) and Jake Sueflohn (149) each are ranked fourth. Redshirt freshman Tim Lambert is 10th at 125, newcomer Pat Downey is 17th at 184 and Austin Wilson is 19th at 165.
As a team, Nebraska is seventh in the InterMat’s poll. Three-time defending national champion Penn State is No. 1, followed by Iowa and Minnesota.
