BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - UC Davis rallied close to Cal State Bakersfield after falling to an early 13-0 deficit but the host Roadrunners finished strong to beat the Aggies 26-12 in a Pac-10 wrestling match on Friday night at the Icardo Center.

UC Davis dropped to 3-3 overall and 2-2 in the Pac-10 while the Roadrunners - ranked 23rd nationally - improved to 12-4 overall and 4-1 in conference action. Brandon Bear had a pin at 184 pounds to help highlight the Aggies' night while Reed Shelger (197) and Daniel Murphree (149) posted wins by decision.

Bear's pin, which came at the 6 minutes, 13 seconds against Scott O'Rear improved his overall record to 13-4. Bear is ranked 20th by The Wrestling Mall and W.I.N. Magazine. Bear led 4-0 at the end of the first period and held a 10-1 lead in the third period before recording his first pin of the season. His victory gave UC Davis its first points after Cal State Bakersfield won the first three matches of the night to take an early 13-0 lead.
