LINCOLN, Neb. – Three of the eight Championship Series at the 2017 U.S. Freestyle World Team Trials went the full three matches, making for some amazing drama on the raised center mat in the Bob Devaney Center on Saturday night.

They saved the best match for last, as 2012 Olympic champion and three-time World champion Jordan Burroughs (Lincoln, Neb./Sunkist Kids/Nebraska WTC) battled in the third match of his 74 kg/163 lbs. against rival Kyle Dake (Ithaca, N.Y./Titan Mercury WC/Finger Lakes WC) in front of a hometown crowd of Nebraska Cornhusker fans.
