Columbia, MO - The No. 17 Missouri Tigers (6-4) travel to Lincoln, Neb. To take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers (8-7) at the NU Coliseum, Friday, Jan. 29 at 7 p.m. CST. The dual is the Big 12 opener for both squads, as they both seek to open their conference campaign with a win.

The last time the Tigers and Huskers met, Missouri led Nebraska up until the last match of the night, when then No. 2 Craig Brester of Nebraska defeated then No. 4 Maxwell Askren (Hartland, Wis.) by decision, 5-4. The three points put the Huskers up by one to take a 16-15 victory in Columbia.
 
In a dual featuring a pair of teams with talented wrestlers among the heavier weight classes, both the 174-pound and 197-pound weight classes offer bouts between ranked opponents. Ranked No. 15 at 174 pounds, sophomore Dorian Henderson (Columbus, Ga.) will face off against Nebraska's No. 4 Stephen Dwyer. No. 15 Brent Haynes (Kansas City, Mo.) of Missouri will square off against the Huskers' Brester, ranked No. 2 in the country. While Brester boasts an undefeated record of 21-0, Haynes has won four of his last five matches, including two by fall, and one by major decision over Chattanooga's Nikolas Brown.
