College wrestling is still four months-and-change from getting under way, but it’s never too early for preseason rankings. InterMat released its preseason individual and team rankings ahead of the 2022-23 season. As far as the team rankings are concerned, there are two sets: dual meet and tournament. But the same familiar faces are near the top, while some new teams made some serious leaps after the 2021-22 season.
The dual meet rankings are how the teams would fare against one another in a match with all 10 wrestlers toeing the line. The tournament rankings are based on individual scoring on the national tournament to determine team trophies and standings.
The usual suspects like Penn State, Iowa and Oklahoma State, among others, will look to continue dominance across the sport but there are plenty of squads looking to shake it up.
