Wrestling in a dual for the first time since entering into the rankings, No. 12 Brent Haynes became Missouri's fourth wrestler to win in the dual. Haynes, wrestling in the 197-pound weight-class held a 7-0 lead in the second period, but Ryan Smith of Cal Poly would not quit.
Battling obvious fatigue, Haynes avoided a takedown in the final thirty seconds to win 9-7. The victory cut Cal Poly's lead to 22-12.
