Willie Breyer, Michigan
JR, 197, Oxford, Mich./Oxford
Breyer used a inside cradle to pin Ohio State's fourth-ranked J.D. Bergman at 3:36 to cap the Wolverines 32-6 home victory over the Buckeyes last week. Two days later in a 21-11 win over Iowa, Breyer rallied from an early deficit to defeat Adam Fellers, 4-2. Breyer regained his momentum after missing six duals in late January with an injury.
This is Breyer's first Big Ten Wrestler of the Week honor and Michigan's second this season. Ryan Churella earned the Wolverines' first weekly award on December 8, 2004.
