#4 Iowa (0-0) vs. #1 Oklahoma State (0-0)
The build-up to this event has been a blast, but the time for hype is over -- now it's time to get down to business and wrestle. In front of over 35,000 fans. Outside. In Kinnick Staidum. (Seriously, this is so weird -- and so cool.) The weather forecast for the meet looks about as good as you could hope for in Iowa City in mid-November -- sunny and temperatures in the 50s, though 10-12 mph winds could make things feel a little more brisk. Thankfully, there's no precipitation in the forecast, which was the biggest concern. Thank you for cooperating today, weather gods.
The dual itself looks like it's going to follow a typical match order, beginning at 125 lbs and working up to the big boys at heavyweight. Here's the official match list, courtesy the good folks at IAWrestle:
As I noted in yesterday's preview, this looks like a pretty even matchup, so every match and every point could be critical.
Here's your thread to talk about the action; I'll post results and updates in the comments as well.
The usual rules apply, but seriously -- just don't be an ass.
