ANN ARBOR, MI -- A shocker in the state up north Sunday night.

Graduate-student heavyweight Adam Coon used a first-period takedown to hand No. 1 Kyle Snyder his first collegiate loss in almost three years as the No. 4-ranked University of Michigan wrestling team dropped a close 18-15 dual to No. 2 Ohio State on bonus points Sunday night (Feb. 11) in front of a record 8,303 fans at Crisler Center.

Coon, ranked second in the national rankings, countered a Snyder shot late in the first period and found his over-under position to toss Snyder to his back on the edge of the for the winning takedown -- though no back points -- and rode out the period. The two wrestlers traded escapes in the second and third, and Snyder could not finish on multiple leg attacks throughout the match. Coon improved to 22-0 on the season, while Snyder, an Olympic and two-time world champion, suffered his first loss since the 2015 NCAA finals.
