Ben Berhow, Minnesota
Jr., HWT, Hayward, Minn./Albert Lea
Behind a pair of victories, including an upset win over the seventh-ranked grappler in his weight class, Berhow wins his first Wrestler of the Week honor as Minnesota won two duals last week. On Thursday against Nebraska, the Minnesota heavyweight battled No. 7 Tucker Lane into overtime that ended with Berhow taking down Lane for a 9-7 sudden victory, leading the No. 5 Gophers to a 28-14 victory over the No. 12 Cornhuskers. In Sunday's win over Northern Colorado, 11th-ranked Berhow pinned Justin Tuell as Minnesota cruised to a 41-3 win.
