Hawks pin down Panthers 48-3

Posted:

IOWA CITY (KWWL) -- The top-ranked University of Iowa wrestling team (9-0) recorded six pins and three major decisions en route to a 48-3 win over Northern Iowa (3-4) Thursday night at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. The 45-point victory margin is Iowa's largest in the 79-year series, and the win was Iowa Head Coach Tom Brands' 85th career victory.

The Hawkeyes, who picked up their 47th straight dual win and 20th consecutive victory in Carver-Hawkeye Arena, collected 29 takedowns on the evening, allowing just one for the Panthers. It was the third time this season that Iowa pinned six opponents in a dual, duplicating their efforts against Iowa Lakes and Southern Illinois Edwardsville at the Iowa City Duals on Nov. 20. Iowa decked seven opponents that day against Cornell College.

Up next for Iowa is a trip to the 46th annual Midlands Championships, which will be held Dec. 29-30 in Evanston, IL. The Hawkeyes are the defending team champions and have won the most team titles (20) in the 46-year history of the meet. All matches will be held at Welsh-Ryan Arena on Northwestern University's campus.
