COLUMBIA -- On a night where the No. 6-ranked Missouri wrestlers received their Big 12 Championship rings, the Tigers kicked off the home season with a decisive 37-0 victory over the Baker Wildcats at the Hearnes Center. Missouri's starting lineup featured five wrestlers ranked in the top-20 nationally. The Tigers did not allow a single takedown or reversal as a team in the entire dual.

No.8-ranked 133-pounder Nathan McCormick set the tone for the evening in the meet's second match. The senior captain pinned Baker's Bo Pursel with 14 seconds remaining in the opening period. McCormick improves to 3-0 on the season after two wins-by-decision last weekend at Purdue. 157-pounder Kyle Bradley was one of four Tiger grapplers to win by a major decision. The No.14-ranked Bradley controlled his match against Baker wrestler Connor Middleton from the very beginning. Bradley recorded 8 takedowns and earned a 19-6 victory by major decision.

Junior Zach Toal made his first appearance of the season at 165 pounds. Toal missed last weekend's matchups with Old Dominion and Purdue due to injury. The No.9-ranked Toal responded well in his first match against Baker's Nathan Sommer. Sommer entered the evening ranked No. 4 in the NAIA rankings. Toal tallied three takedowns and two near falls in his 16-2 victory by major decision. Senior Brent Haynes continued his strong start to the 2012-13 season. The No.5-ranked Haynes defeated the No.5 NAIA-ranked Robert Shadrach 7-0 by decision. Haynes improves to 3-0 on the season.

Senior Todd Porter got off to a fast start in his match at 174 pounds. He registered a takedown less than 25 seconds into the match and followed it up with two near falls before the end of the first period. The No.20-ranked Porter record 3:11 of riding time in a decisive 18-4 victory by major decision.

Missouri's Trevor Wiest got his first dual start of the season, winning 7-6 in a highly contested bout. Wiest was up 4-1 when Baker's Nick Haugan recorded a 3-point near fall to tie the match. The sophomore rallied in the third period with a takedown to earn his first dual win. Sophomore Johnny Eblen continued his hot start to the year as well with a 11-3 win by major decision versus Baker's Parker Owen. He is now 6-0 on the year after winning five straight matches last Sunday to be crowned the 184-pound champion at the University of Central Missouri Open.

Here's a look at the box score from the team's 37-0 victory:

125 - Boomer Boyd won by decision over Alan Callahan, 3-1.
