Hawkeye Wrestlers Host Dual


IOWA CITY (KWWL) - The Iowa Hawkeye wrestlers (19-0, 4-0 Big Ten) will host Northwestern (5-10-1, 0-5 Big Ten) Friday at 7 p.m.

Iowa will wrestle #5 Minnesota (11-4, 6-0 Big Ten) Sunday at 6 p.m.

Iowa, Minnesota and Ohio State are undefeated in conference competition.

The Hawkeyes have won 57 straight dual matches, which is a school record. The current streak started with a win over Cornell (32-3) on Jan. 12, 2008, which was the first match after Iowa lost to Oklahoma State (19-14) on Jan. 5.

That 57-match winning streak ranks fourth-best in NCAA wrestling history behind three Oklahoma State streaks. The Cowboys won 76 straight duals from 1937-51, and had two 69-match streaks (1921-32 and 1996-99).
