Penn State wrestling was without three expected starters, but the Nittany Lions still got the win Friday night.
The Nittany Lions rallied to take down the Illini 22-16.
Missing from Penn State’s lineup would be former national champ Vincenzo Joseph, all-American Roman Bravo-Young and expected starter Brady Berge. Berge is still healing from an injury at the Under-23 World Championships in October.
Shakur Rasheed made his season debut after recovering from a knee injury. He defeated Matt Wroblewski 3-0 wrestling at 197 pounds.
According to the Penn State radio broadcast, Joseph and Bravo-Young are both expected to be back for Penn State’s dual against Wisconsin Sunday.
