Penn State (6-0) remained No. 1 in the USA Today/NWCA/AWN Division I Coaches Poll released on Tuesday. Unlike previous weeks, the Nittany Lions garnered all 10 first-place votes to be the unanimous selection. Coach Cael Sanderson’s team is fresh off a 31-6 win against Ohio State on Sunday, a match which saw true freshman Zain Retherford defeat two-time NCAA champion Logan Stieber 4-2 in sudden victory at 141 pounds.

Complete Poll
The rest of the top six remained the same, as Minnesota (4-0), Iowa (6-0), Oklahoma (5-0), Oklahoma State (3-2) and Cornell (3-0) stayed put.

Iowa defeated Buffalo 46-0 last week. The Hawkeyes were bolstered by the return of All-American heavyweight Bobby Telford. Oklahoma State won two matches during a Western swing. The Cowboys shut out Northern Colorado 48-0 and topped another set of Cowboys, Wyoming 30-6.
