Wisconsin junior wrestler Isaac Jordan advanced to Friday’s quarterfinal after sweeping his first two opponents in the opening sessions of the 2016 NCAA Wrestling Championships on Thursday at Madison Square Garden.

Jordan (27-0) collected two major decisions on the day at 165 pounds to clinch his spot in the quarterfinals where he will face Nebraska’s Austin Wilson.

Jordan has a 2-and-oh record against Wilson after pinning him in the 2014-15 season at the 32-second mark and defeating him by a major decision (8-0) in this season’s regular season dual.

The quarterfinals get underway Friday morning.
