Of course it would be J'Den Cox who wrapped it up. Cox's 4-3 win over Nathan Burak in the 197-pound match secured an 18-12 win for No. 2 Missouri over No. 1 Iowa in the finals of the National Duals. It is the Tigers' first title and the greatest team achievement in Mizzou's wrestling history. Brian Smith's charges won a series of closely-matched battles to secure the slight upset.

Or, to put it another way, you're going to probably see a new No. 1 in the country soon.

This team is incredible. Mizzou will host the MAC championships in two weeks, and if you're anywhere near Columbia, you should head out there.
