ISU wrestlers dominate UNI 42-0

Posted:

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- The second-ranked Iowa State wrestling team scored its biggest-ever victory over Northern Iowa Saturday, beating the Panthers 42-0 in the West Gym.  ISU's first shutout of UNI in 43 years came via bonus-point victories in seven of the 10 bouts.

The dual victory was ISU's first shutout of the Panthers since 1966 (35-0). ISU is 52-16 all-time against UNI.

"Having our guys winning in all 10 of the matches is important," said ISU head coach Kevin Jackson. "To be where we want to be in March, we want the team to be wrestling like how we are training them."

The Cyclones hit the road Dec. 29-30 for the prestigious Midlands Championships on the campus of Northwestern University in Evanston, Ill. The first session kicks off at 9:30 a.m. on Dec. 29.  ISU will then travel for a dual meet Jan. 3 at Minnesota.  Mat action begins at 2 p.m.
