The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga is 39-3 all-time in wrestling against The Citadel after Friday night's 31-10 Southern Conference win over the Bulldogs in Maclellan Gymnasium.

UTC (6-6, 4-1) will host 25th-ranked Campbell (5-0, 3-0) in a SoCon showdown at 2 p.m. Sunday. Six Mocs seniors will be honored.

UTC's Chris Debien and Tanner Smith opened Friday's dual meet with technical-fall triumphs at 141 and 149 pounds, and an 8-6 decision for Drew Nicholson and a pin by fellow freshman Hunter Fortner gave the Mocs a 19-3 lead midway through the 10 matches. After The Citadel (1-8, 1-2) cut that to 19-10, UTC closed out the victory with a 6-1 decision by Connor Tolley at 285, a tech fall by Alonzo Allen at 125 and a major decision by Jake Huffine at 133.

Those are three of the team's seniors.
