CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -

The UNI Panthers won their first meet as a Big 12 wrestling program, topping new conference foe North Dakota State.

The 13th ranked Panthers clinched the meet in the final match of the day. Needing bonus points to secure the win, 141 pounder Josh Alber secured a 19-4 tech fall to give the Panthers a 21-19 team victory.

UNI won six of the ten contested matches and got a big boost at 174 pounds. Eighth ranked Taylor Lujan dominated NDSU's Dylan Urbach prior to getting a third period pin. The win marked the only fall for the Panthers on the afternoon.

Next up, UNI travels to compete in the Las Vegas Invite set for December 1-2.
