Hey, I'm [ESPN2]*Arizona State vs Penn State Live Stream!

Pensilvania, Caldas

Here's what's really at stake Friday night when No. 15 Arizona State visits No. 1 Penn State in a key college wrestling match at Rec Hall that will air at 6 p.m. on ESPN2:

Penn State could win its 49th straight match, Bo Nickal could win his 45th consecutive bout, Jason Nolf could record his 52nd career fall and, oh yeah, about 13,000 eyeballs could pop out watching Mark Hall and Zahid Valencia.

The first three are near locks; the last one might be slightly overstated but NCAA-title-bout, No. 1-vs.-No. 2 rematches don't come around all that often. Barring a rare, Rec Hall random draw that would alter the order of the weight classes, match No. 7 features the 2017 champ vs. the 2018 champ; each beat the other on the way to their respective titles.

Hall won by one point in 2017 and Valencia took control in an 8-2 victory last March in Cleveland. Valencia also won an all-star exhibition bout against Hall and owns eight freestyle victories as well, according to Flo Wrestling.

While the eighth PSU-ASU meeting won't have the overall drama and electricity of last February's Penn State-Ohio State thriller, another sellout crowd of 6,500-plus can look forward to going full throat at 174.

"Yeah, it’s a big match but every match is big in a certain sense," Penn State coach Cael Sanderson said about Hall-Valencia III. "He’s (Valencia) the top-seeded guy in the weight and he’s one of the guys you have to beat if you want to be national champion. So you have to be your best and that’s the goal. It always is."

If no lineup shuffling occurs, other bouts worth watching are 149 and 165, particularly 165 where No. 1 Vincenzo Joseph of Penn State faces No. 5 Josh Shields, a friend of Joseph's from the Young Guns Wrestling Club in Pittsburgh and graduate of Franklin Regional High School.
