The No. 3 Gophers wrestling team opened its season Saturday with eight individual titles at the Bison Open in Fargo, N.D.
Minnesota redshirt freshman Brett Pfarr won the 184-pound title, redshirt senior Tony Nelson won the heavyweight title and their teammates added six more individual titles as the Gophers won more than 75 percent of their matches.
“We’ve got a really well-rounded team,” Nelson said. “That’s why I think we walked away with eight titles.”
