Weight-by-weight breakdown of Friday’s dual between No. 1 Iowa and No. 2 Penn State
January 31, 2020


The Iowa wrestling team’s January home schedule has been a build-up to this week, with each dual featuring a tougher, more talented opponent en route to this Friday’s matchup against No. 2 Penn State.

On Jan. 18, it was No. 9 Nebraska. The top-ranked Hawkeyes weathered a slew of close matches en route to a 26-6 win over the Huskers.

Last week, it was No. 3 Ohio State. Iowa muscled its way to a dominant 24-10 win over the Buckeyes.

Now, come Friday night, the Hawkeyes get the Nittany Lions, winners of eight of the last nine NCAA team titles and the No. 2-ranked team in the country.
