Split in Corvallis
CORVALLIS, Ore. – Stanford closed out the regular season, Sunday, defeating host Oregon State, 19-16, before falling to Utah Valley, 19-16, at Gill Coliseum.

Trailing 16-13 going into the final bout against the Beavers, who lost a team point due to unsportsmanlike conduct, fifth-year senior Nathan Traxler recorded a first period fall over Brian Barnes at heavyweight to seal the win for the Cardinal. It was the first fall of the season for Traxler, who improved to 4-1 on the season at 285 pounds.
