Oklahoma State redshirt freshman Daton Fix, a Charles Page High School Class of 2017 graduate, extended his undefeated college win streak to 9-0 after a pair of dominant wins in his collegiate dual debut.

The No. 4 ranked cowboys (2-0) steamrolled No. 22 South Dakota State (0-2) 45-6 and topped No. 13 Minnesota (1-1) 23-9.

Fans hoped to see Fix take on defending NCAA Champion Seth Gross Saturday, but the top-ranked Jackrabbit backed out of the lineup for medical reasons and instead it was Spencer Huber on the losing end of a 19-1 technical fall. Fix needed only 4:43 to rack up three takedowns and three nearfalls.

Ninth-ranked Fix got a far closer matchup against No. 6 ranked Ethan Lizak on Sunday, but easily handled the 2017 NCAA Finalist 6-1 with two takedowns and a reversal.

Fix went undefeated at 168-0 for four State Titles during his time in Sand Springs and was the top-ranked recruit in the country pound-for-pound. He is a Junior Freestyle World Champion and Youth Olympic Silver Medalist. He holds the all-time Sand Springs records for wins, technical falls, and takedowns.

The Cowboys will host No. 20 Wyoming (2-1) in their home debut Sunday, November 25th at 2:00 p.m. in their second Big 12 dual.
