Second ranked ISU downs #19 Illinois 33-9


AMES (KWWL) -- Second-rated Iowa State scored two pins and two technical falls en route to a 33-9 rout of 19th-ranked Illinois Saturday night in Hilton Coliseum. The Cyclones were missing regular starters Nick Gallick (141), Mitch Mueller (149) and Duke Burk (174) from their lineup. That fact didn't stop the ISU squad from coming up with plenty of bonus points for the crowd of 2,812 Cyclone supporters on hand to witness the dual victory.

Iowa State improves to 7-2 in duals this season. It was Iowa State's 996th dual win in 94 years of Cyclone wrestling history. Illinois falls to 5-3.

The Cyclones will travel south for road duals against Oklahoma (Jan. 22) and Oklahoma State (Jan. 24). Action in Norman, Okla. begins at 7 p.m. ISU returns to Hilton Coliseum for Big 12 Conference opponents Missouri and Nebraska, Feb. 14 and Feb. 21, respectively.
