Idaho colleges roundup: Boise State wrestlers stumble at Stanford

STATESMAN STAFFJanuary 10, 2014 

PALO ALTO, Calif. — The 20th-ranked Broncos lost to Stanford 19-12 on Thursday in the first of three Pac-12 road duals in four days. The Broncos (1-2, 1-1 Pac-12) received decisions from Jake Swartz (184 pounds), J.T. Felix (285), Travis Himmelman (141) and Chris Castillo (149), but Stanford won five matches by decision and a sixth by major decision to claim the victory. The loss is Boise State’s first on the road to a conference opponent since losing to Cal Poly 22-20 on Jan. 8, 2012 — nearly two years to the day. Boise State wrestles at Cal State Bakersfield on Friday and at Cal Poly on Sunday. The next home match is against North Dakota State on Jan. 17 — the Beauty & Beast event with the Boise State gymnastics team (versus BYU and Denver).
