In the final bout Sunday evening between Oklahoma State and Minnesota, No. 4 Brock outlasted No. 6 Mitch McKee in a 9-7 decision. Brock got off to a solid start with three first-period takedowns, before scoring an escape early in the second. He gave up one takedown in the second period.
The 133-pounder notched one more takedown in the third to wrap up the match and the dual. Brock, after his true freshman season was cut short due to injury, has since proven himself worthy of being a top competitor. In his redshirt freshman season of 2017, Brock was named an All-American, finishing fifth with an overall record of 29-4 and 14-1 in dual matches.
Currently, his 2017-2018 season record stands at 7-1.
