A typical Lehigh wrestling schedule includes 8 to 10 league opponents and another 2 or 3 traditional opponents (Penn St, Pitt, Rutgers) with one road trip to traditionally strong programs (this year Northwestern and Illinois, last year Boise and Oregon St). With the tournaments, that pretty much fills the season. We have also had matches with VA Tech, Iowa, Central Michigan to name a few. The OOC matches are usually done on a home and home, although getting Iowa and the Oklahomas to come east is not easy.

A lot of schools have dropped wrestling, leaving the field for scheduling a bit tighter. But we are successful in getting home and home with pretty much all of the traditionally strong programs, not sure if this would parlay into BB however.
