Hawkeyes hope to continue dominance of Cyclones on mat

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

IOWA CITY, IOWA (KTIV) — The Cy-Hawks continues on Saturday on the wrestling mat. Iowa will host Iowa State, hoping to continue their dominance over the Cyclones. Iowa has won 14 straight in the series, the last 13 wins coming under head coach Tom Brands, a native of Sheldon.

Most of the recent duals haven’t been close. The last seven wins in the series have been by at least 14 points. This season, the Hawkeyes are 4-0 and are ranked third in the nation. Iowa State is 1-0.

Iowa has four native Iowans in their lineup, including OA-BCIG grad Cash Wilcke at 184 pounds, who know what this rivalry means to the state.

“Yeah, it will be fun,” said Wilcke. “It will be a packed house, a great opportunity for us. It will be a lot of fun. It was a little one-sided and I picked the right side I guess.”

“I know that we have to work on our team and get our team ready to go,” said Brands. “The focus is on seven minutes, hard and we have the guys that march to that and when they march to that they’re pretty dog-gone good.”

That dual starts at 2 o’clock Saturday at Carver Hawkeye Arena.
