“DeAngelis wrestled with a lot of heart like he always does,” Cody said. “He's been in several matches like that where the other guy technically may be a little bit more sound, but DeAngelis has so much fight and heart that you better be ready to battle for seven minutes with him.”

UNI (6-0) has now upset the Sooners in consecutive seasons after also winning in Cedar Falls, Iowa, last year. Both wins have served as evidence of a program on the rise under fourth-year coach Doug Schwab.

“We've been working to build not just an OK program, but an elite program,” Schwab said. “OU's an elite program. Coach Cody does a great job, and this year they've got a very good team. To come down here and beat the No. 4 team in the country, it's a very good win for our program.”

OU's next action will be on the road in Corvallis, Ore., where the Sooners will take on No. 20 Oregon State at 1:30 p.m. Sunday.

OSU FALLS AT PITT

Fifth-ranked Oklahoma State suffered its fourth loss of the season, and third by just one point, after falling 19-18 to No. 13 Pittsburgh on Sunday.

The dual finished tied at 18-18, but the Panthers were awarded the tiebreaking point due to Mike Racciato's pin in 1:37 over OSU's seventh-ranked Josh Kindig (OSU) at 149 pounds.

Jon Morrison (No. 5 at 133 pounds) and Chris Perry (No. 2 at 174 pounds) were the only Cowboys to pick up victories over ranked opponents. Morrison earned a 2-0 win over No. 17 Shelton Mack, while Perry defeated seventh-ranked Tyler Wilps in sudden victory, 5-3.
