As the dual season winds down, Big Ten wrestlers are gearing up for postseason tournaments.
In Iowa’s final Big Ten road dual, the No. 3 Hawkeyes (10-2, 6-1 Big Ten) travel to unranked Indiana (9-7, 2-5) on Friday night. The meet is not televised.
The Hawkeyes have won 21 consecutive Big Ten road duals and own a 37-4-3 record historically against the Hoosiers. Indiana hasn’t beaten Iowa since the 1967-68 season.
Iowa has two more duals left this season. Sunday, the Hawkeyes host No. 6 Nebraska (12-1, 6-1) at Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Then on Feb. 19, Iowa competes at an undetermined opponent in the National Duals.
