By Trackwrestling | Nov. 28, 2017, 10:07 a.m. (ET)

After a light week on the college wrestling schedule, Ohio State stretched its lead over second-ranked Penn State and Iowa rejoined the top 10 in the Trackwrestling Division I rankings presented by Resilite.

The Buckeyes increased their projected NCAA advancement and placement point total to a season-high 121.5. The Nittany Lions are 8.5 back, followed once again by Oklahoma State, Michigan and Missouri.

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.
