The motion to change the NCAA wrestling team-title competition is moving on to the last test: NCAA approval.

The Division I head coaches voted to change the format from the point-based system currently used at a single NCAA championship meet — which names both the individual champions and the team winner from the same tournament — to a dual-meet tournament.

The change received 39 votes, while 36 head coaches voted against the motion. Two coaches abstained from voting.

The National Duals proposal will now move to the NCAA Wrestling Committee, other NCAA and individual conference officials, athletics administrators, and a group of university presidents.

Iowa head coach Tom Brands opposes the National Duals proposal, as reported by The Daily Iowan on Sept. 7.
