Penn State tops Iowa in memorable wrestling meet

No. 3 Iowa hosted No. 1 Penn State in a rare non-conference battle of Big Ten teams Saturday night. The two coaches decided to schedule the dual meet after the Big Ten schedule did not include a conference date between the teams.

It was a good thing they did.

The much-anticipated match lived up to the hype, but in the end, it was the No. 1-ranked Nittany Lions who came out of Carver Hawkeye Arena with an impressive 24-12 win over Iowa.

What a great dual! it’s a shame they had such terrible commentary. ESPN and BTN need to update their commentators and get some fresh, exciting people reporting the matches. The sport of wrestling needs people that do an exciting sport justice and not people that put the fans to sleep.
