 UNI took down its first top-25 team of the season with an 18-16 win over No. 21 Old Dominion on Senior Night.

The win over second-ranked MAC team improves UNI to 8-8 overall and 5-3 in the MAC. ODU falls to 12-5 overall, 5-2 in the MAC.

ODU jumped out to a nine-point lead before UNI's lone senior in the starting lineup grabbed the Panthers' first decision and start a Panther streak.

After a scoreless first period in the 197-pound match, Basil Minto rolled out of the grasp of Kevin Beazley to go up 1-0. Beazley got an escape of his own, and Minto responded with the final takedown. Minto's decision pulled UNI within six points and set up the heavyweight match with No. 10 Blaize Cabell and Matt Tourdot.

Cabell grabbed five takedowns to get an 11-4 decision.

Cabell is the lone Panther to finish the dual season undefeated, finishing 8-0 in the MAC and 16-0 overall in duals.

The meet came down to Jarrett Jensen at 157 pounds. He secured the Panther victory with a pin in 2 minutes, 14 seconds.
