IOWA CITY, Iowa — Fierce Big Ten wrestling competitors Iowa and Penn State lock up once again in a Big Ten dual meet at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT at Bryce Jordan Center in University Park, Pa.

Defending national champion Penn State (12-0, 8-0 Big Ten) is ranked No. 1 nationally and stopped No. 2 Ohio State 19-18 in a thrilling dual last week. Iowa (11-2, 6-2) and lost previously to Michigan (19-17) and Ohio State (22-12).

The Iowa-Penn State dual has become one of the nation’s must-see wrestling events, and Saturday’s battle is no different. Bryce Jordan Center is sold out, and on TicketCity.com, the starting ticket price is $103.

“I feel like it’s a dual that people are interested in every single year because both programs are always in that national title conversation,” said Iowa 157-pound wrestler Michael Kemerer, a Pennsylvania native who is ranked No. 2. “Then you’ve got teams like Ohio State that are in there. So I’d say when Penn State, Iowa, Ohio State, teams like that are wrestling, everyone wants to watch. So I’d say it’s definitely a rivalry.”

“It’s like we talk about with big dual meets that are highlighted on the calendar,” Iowa coach Tom Brands said. “You’ve got to be up for it, at the same time you’ve got to stick to your routine and do the things that you do best.”
