Posted:
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (KWWL) -

The University of Iowa wrestling team used pins from Tony Ramos and Bobby Telford to recover from a stunning loss by Matt McDonough and defeat No. 8 Illinois, 25-12, tonight inside Huff Hall on the Fighting Illini campus. The win gives Iowa (17-1, 7-0) at least of share of the Big Ten regular season championship. The second-ranked Hawkeyes can clinch the title outright with a win over No. 13 Nebraska on Sunday.

 Iowa won only six of 10 bouts, but used bonus points at 133, 157 and 285 to separate themselves from the Illini (6-5, 2-5).
 
 
Illinois started fast when Jesse Delgado upset top-ranked Matt McDonough 9-4, at 125, snapping his 42 match winning streak. But the Hawkeyes counterpunched with a fall at 133. Ramos and 10th-ranked Daryl Thomas wrestled through a scoreless first period before Ramos scored an escape and takedown in the second period to take a 3-0 lead into the third. Ramos totaled three more takedowns in the final period and was working on nearfall points when he flattened Thomas with: 24 seconds on the clock.
