OU's Ryan Millhof Named Big 12 Wrestler of the Week

University of Oklahoma wrestler Ryan Millhof nabbed Big 12 Wrestler of the Week honors after recording his sixth straight win, the conference announced Wednesday.

The Suwanee, Ga., native recorded a 5-3 decision over then-No. 5 Eddie Klimara of Oklahoma State in the 125-pound match last Friday night in Stillwater. Klimara held a 3-2 advantage late in the third frame before Millhof tallied a takedown and secured the riding-time point for the win.

The victory marked the sophomore’s fifth win over a ranked opponent and fourth over a higher-ranked opponent in his last six outings. Millhof boasts a 13-6 record on the season and a 7-2 record over ranked opponents.

Millhof and the Sooners return to the mat on Thursday, Feb. 11, for a contest with Oregon State, slated for a 9 p.m. CT start in Corvallis, Ore., before returning home on Sunday at 2 p.m. for their final dual of the season with No. 24 South Dakota State.
