The 15 matches for Final X: Lincoln are set.

The field for the June 15 event at the Devaney Sports Center was finalized after the completion of the USA Wrestling Freestyle World Team Trials in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Former Huskers Jordan Burroughs and James Green will be part of the field. Green clinched his ticket with a win at 70 kilograms in Raleigh. Omaha Skutt and Iowa graduate Thomas Gilman will also be wrestling in Lincoln.

Burroughs will wrestle two-time NCAA champion Isaiah Martinez, who wrestled at Illinois. The two wrestlers met at last year's Final X event in Lincoln, with Burroughs prevailing.
