Big Ten champion and No. 2 Iowa sits in first place after Session I of the 2015 Big Ten Wrestling Championships in Columbus, Ohio.
The Hawkeyes, who advanced seven wrestlers to the semifinals, tallied 65 points, 11 more than second-place Minnesota.
?We have a lot of work to do,? Iowa coach Tom Brands told HawkeyeSports.com. ?I think a lot of points are being left off the board as a team. We could score more takedowns.?
Iowa?s seven semifinalists is a tournament best, followed by Minnesota with six, and Ohio State and Penn State with five.
Session II starts at 6 p.m. ET on BTN Plus, our subscription platform. Sunday's finals will air live on BTN/BTN2Go.
