Reigning ACC Wrestler of the Week Joe Spisak (R-Jr., Boiling Springs, Pa.) is No. 15 at 141. Stephen Doty (R-Sr., St. Louis, Mo.) is No. 16 at 174. Jon Fausey (R-Sr., Dalmatia, Pa.) earned a No. 19 ranking at 184 from InterMat.
George Mason is 6-13 this season in dual action. Sahid Kargbo holds an 18-10 mark at 141 pounds, while Greg Flournoy is 16-11 at 157. Vincent Rodriguez is 13-9 at 133.
Virginia and George Mason have met 11 times previously, with the Cavaliers holding a 7-4 edge. UVa defeated the Patriots 41-3 last season in Charlottesville.
