Loaded Big Ten opens wrestling season Thursday

It’s time for Big Ten wrestling. The 2012-13 season opens Thursday, and what a campaign it should be. The conference boasts a nation’s best eight teams ranked in the USA Today/NWCA/AWN Division I Coaches Poll, including six squads in the top 10.

Minnesota holds the top spot in the poll, while Penn State (No. 2), Iowa (No. 4), Ohio State (No. 5), Illinois (No. 6) and Nebraska (No. 9) also earned top-10 honors. Michigan (No. 13) and Northwestern (No. 14) round out the group of Big Ten ranked teams.

Indiana hosts Manchester and Michigan welcomes Olivet on Thursday in the season’s first dual-meet action.
