The Cowboys finished fourth behind Iowa, Penn State, and Ohio State, and just ahead of Rutgers who averaged 5,038 attendees per dual.

OSU had the highest attendance outside of the Big Ten and tops in the Big 12 ahead of Iowa State, Fresno State, Northern Iowa, South Dakota State, and Utah Valley who all finished inside the top 25.

The sellout crowd of 13,811 for the Iowa dual was the 26th highest attendance for any wrestling dual ever.
