Noah Ottum of Anchorage helped the Colorado School of Mines wrestling team knock off its third straight NCAA D2 ranked opponent.

The junior 149-pounder earned a 14-5 major decision over Dyllan Fuch as the Orediggers beat No. 25 Colorado Mesa 28-11.

Ottum, of South High fame, outscored Fuch 7-0 in the second period and scored three escapes in the match.

He improved to 9-7 on the season.

Last week, Mines upset No. 19 Chadron State 27-9 with Ottum winning his match by an 8-6 decision over Chance Karst.

Mines also beat No. 25 San Francisco 32-13, but Ottum didn’t wrestle.

He owns a 44-27 career mark and qualified for nationals last season.
