Nebraska junior James Green jumped to No. 1 at 157 pounds in five NCAA wrestling polls that were released Monday and Tuesday.
Green entered the weekend ranked third before his 9-7 decision over then-No. 1 Derek St. John of Iowa. Green now claims the top spot in InterMat, Amateur Wrestling News, WIN Magazine, Asics FloRankings and WrestlingReport. St. John falls to No. 2, while Oklahoma State's Alex Dieringer rounds out the top three in each set of rankings.
Green, a two-time All-American, is 22-0 and holds an 8-0 record in duals. He has four pins, three technical falls and five major decisions to go along with five wins over ranked opponents.
Meanwhile, Nebraska moved up one spot in the InterMat team rankings to No. 7 despite Saturday's dual loss to Iowa. The Hawkeyes were No. 2.
The Huskers hit the road for a pair of Big Ten duals this weekend at Ohio State on Friday and at Purdue on Sunday.
