By Trackwrestling | Nov. 14, 2017, 10:05 a.m. (ET)
There's a new team atop the Trackwrestling Division I rankings presented by Resilite.

Ohio State hurdled Penn State to grab the No. 1 spot after the second weekend of college wrestling action this season. The Buckeyes got a lift from 165-pounder Te'Shan Campbell, who moved up two notches to No. 7 after handling Arizona State's Anthony Valencia 14-0 Sunday in Ohio State's 31-12 victory against the Sun Devils in Columbus.

Ohio State is projected at 114.5 points, followed by Penn State at 112. Oklahoma State regained the No. 3 spot from Michigan, thanks to heavyweight Derek White, who debuted at No. 15 after knocking off a pair of ranked opponents at the Journeymen Collegiate Classic, and Geo Martinez, who moved up to No. 7 at 149 after taking down Virginia Tech All-American Solomon Chishko. Missouri and Arizona State held onto the No. 5 and 6 spots, followed by North Carolina State and Iowa. Rutgers and Northern Iowa joined the top 10, checking in at ninth and 10th, respectively.

The Trackwrestling team rankings are based off the number of advancement and placement points each squad would accumulate if its wrestlers finished in those ranking slots at the NCAA Championships. Top-ranked wrestlers earn 20 points, followed by 16 for second, 13.5 for third, 12.5 for fourth, 10 for fifth, 9 for sixth, 6.5 for seventh, 5.5 for eighth, 2 for spots 9-12, 1.5 for spots 13-16 and 1 for 17-25.

The rankings are compiled by David Mirikitani.
