The Hofstra wresting team will have the rare chance to knock off the number one team in the nation when it hits the mats with top-ranked Cornell Saturday afternoon in the Physical Education Building.
Saturday’s match against number-one ranked Cornell (7-1) will be the Hofstra’s first against the nation’s top team since November of 2006 when the Pride knocked off number-one ranked Minnesota at the Northeast Duals. Hofstra (9-3-1, 4-1 in Colonial Athletic Association) comes into Saturday’s bout winners of five dual matches in a row and has six wrestlers in the nation’s top 25 led by fourth ranked Lou Ruggirello at 133 pounds.
