Michigan State wrestling was nipped by Northwestern, 23-21, Friday night at NU’s Welsh-Ryan Arena, as the Spartans were overtaken late by the Wildcats after building a lead. MSU led 21-10 with three bouts remaining before the Wildcats clawed back and captured the 23-21 win. It was the fourth meeting in the last five match-ups in the series to be decided by seven points or less, as last season, MSU won 19-15. Northwestern won, 18-15, in 2013 and 22-15 in 2011. The Spartans still hold a 27-21 series advantage.
