Iowa vs Nebraska Wrestling Dual Meet Preview


Iowa vs Nebraska will be going down tomorrow night at 9pm EST in Carver Hawekeye Arena. The dual meet can be streamed live on the Big Ten Network.

Projected Matchups-

125- Spencer Lee (Iowa) vs Liam Cronin (Nebraska)

Cronin is coming off of two big wins over DeAugustino over Northwestern and McKee of Minnesota. In all honesty he will most likely run into a brick wall here with Spencer Lee.

Maybe we see a shocking upset here but it is doubtful. Lee major seems like the right answer but he is looking better than ever so maybe we see a tech or pin here.

133- Cullan Schriever (Iowa) vs Kyle Burwick (Nebraska)

Schriever hasn’t looked too bad at 133 for the Hawks, and Burwick just got granted eligibility to compete after this transfer.

I would have to go Schriever here with the win although this could very well be a toss up match.

141- Real Woods (Iowa) vs Brock Hardy (Nebraska)

Hardy is having a massive year and is as high in the rankings as he has ever been. Real Woods put on a clinic against Frankie Tal-Shahar of Northwestern getting a tech which pretty much nobody expected.

I don’t see this one being particularly close should Woods show up for this one.

149- Max Murin (Iowa) vs Dayne Morton (Nebraska)

This one may seem like a blow out for Murin on paper but Morton looked very tough against Nebraska holding Yahya Thomas to a 4-2 decision. Thomas just beat Murin in their last match so maybe we see something here.

This match should be a close one but I will give it to murin here.

157- Cobe Siebrecht (Iowa) vs Peyton Robb (Nebraska)

Robb is the unanimous number one at this point but Siebrecht is looking very tough coming off a massive upset win over Trevor Chumbley of Northwestern.

Really doubtful that Siebrecht will be able to get anything going here but Robb hasn’t always looked to high scoring. This is probably a lower scoring match unless Siebrecht tries to break it open then the scoreline will show for Robb.

165- Patrick Kennedy (Iowa) vs Bubba Wilson (Nebraska)

Wilson has not looked very good this season, Kennedy has been putting up points left and right on guys and really has not been shut down much offensively.

Kennedy might be looking for a major here in this bout.

174- Nelson Brands (Iowa) vs Mikey Labriola (Nebraksa)

Labriola looks like he is in peak form right now, he is stuck at number 2 behind Carter Starocci right now which is what it is. He already has a win over Mekhi Lewis this season and it doesn’t look like anyone is stopping him except Starocci right now.

Doubtful that he is anywhere near putting bonus points on Brands but Labriola should get a dominant win.

184- Abe Assad (Iowa) vs Lenny Pinto (Nebraska)

Interesting matchup at 184 here, on paper everything would favor Assad as Pinto has had some sketchy losses on the season. However he has the ability to send it whenever he needs to so this maybe a match that can go in favor of Nebraska.

197- Jacob Warner (Iowa) vs Silas Alred (Nebraska)

Warner should have no trouble winning this match here for Iowa, and if they are up by any amount of team points here they have effectively sealed the dual.

Alred has had some big wins, most notably Yonger Bastida by pin a while back and Owen Pentz this season. So maybe we see something here.

285- Tony Cassioppi (Iowa) vs Cale Davidson (Nebraska)

Cassioppi has looked great this season, with the beating that Lucas Davison put on Davidson it is hard to imaging Cassioppi not getting a pin here. Nebraska will need a 7 point lead coming into this match or 6 if they have criteria if they want a chance.
