UNIVERSITY PARK, CENTRE COUNTY - Penn State heavyweight Jimmy Lawson has emerged as one of the top wrestlers at his weight class in the nation this season. The junior is 16-2 and ranked No. 12 in the country.

But this weekend he'll be the underdog - at least based on rankings - in his two matches as the No. 1 Nittany Lions wrestle against No. 19 Indiana and No. 14 Northwestern. Both of Lawson's opponents are ranked in the top ten.

WTAJ Nittany Nation reporter Jacob Kaucher takes a look at how Lawson is preparing for the tough test.
