The Iowa wrestlers rolled past Wisconsin 28-10 while clinching a share of the Big Ten's dual meet title.
Iowa won 7 of the matches contested, getting big bonus points at the lower weights. Cory Clark and Tony Ramos opened the meet with pins at 125 and 133 pounds respectively. The Hawkeyes never looked back after that.
One unpleasant surprise, however, came at 157 pounds. Derek St. John, ranked 2nd would be upset by Wisconsin's Isaac Jordan, ranked 7th. Even with the setback the meet was never in doubt.
