Young Big Red Grow Up Quickly, Top #19 Northern Iowa 30-10
November 17, 2017


ITHACA, N.Y. -- The youth movement has begun, and Cornell wrestling proved that rebuilding isn't part of the plan. The Big Red won seven matches, including three over ranked wrestlers, as the home team won its ninth consecutive dual meet with a 30-10 victory over No. 13 Northern Iowa on Friday evening at Newman Arena.

Cornell six of the Big Red victories came courtesy of wrestlers who had combined to compete in one varsity dual. Sophomore Chaz Tucker got the party started with a second period fall, the first of three pins by Big Red wrestlers that set the tone for the team's largest margin of victory against a ranked team since a 34-0 sweep of No. 16 Virginia Tech in 2014.
