Cody Caldwell provided another come from behind victory at 174 pounds rallying in the third period to defeat #19 Mikey England 10-7.  Fifth ranked 184 pounder Ryan Loder followed that with a 26 second pin to seal the team victory as the Panthers moved to a perfect 7-0 on the season.

UNI is just one of 3 undefeated teams remaining in the top 10.
