Host Brian Reinhardt gets to go home this week as the squad heads to Pittsburgh - the kicker is - the Wolfpack is bussing up to Pittsburgh for a dual with the Panthers. Coach Pat Popolizio points out how much Brian sleeps along the way and how Pat will still continue to ration the cold cuts for lunch on the ride. 

Before getting to the dual with Pittsburgh, Brian and Pat look back at the Pack’s big win at home over Virginia. Pittsburgh starts a run of three straight solid duals to close the season with Pittsburgh, North Carolina and the re-scheduled dual with Virginia Tech. Coach Popolizio is looking forward to being able to wrestle in front of the PA native’s families. 


The featured interview portion of the show will highlight North Carolina native Tyrie Houghton, a mechanical engineering major who’s worked his way into the starting lineup among some very accomplished upper weights. Houghton comes into the interview with a black eye, good thing it’s audio.
