The Iowa Hawkeye wrestling team will host the Iowa City Duals on Friday against Baker, Iowa Central and Cornell College. This is the sixth year of the Iowa City Duals and the Hawkeyes are a perfect 16-0 in its history. Based off these lineups I look for the Hawkeyes to continue their clean sweep at these Duals, improving to 19-0. Baker does have six ranked wrestlers but that is at the NAIA level.
Expect to see a lot of this again:

Nothing against these teams, but I really wish we could get UNI back on the schedule for these Duals. Iowa State would also be a good option if the University is looking for more ticket sales. What are you thoughts on a tri-dual with ISU and UNI each year? Heck, throw in Grand View over any of these schools on Friday and fans would be more excited. Scheduling would be the biggest hurdle with basketball and football going on at this time, but it would be great for the fans.
Hawkeyes talk about the Luther Open and getting ready for the Iowa City Duals.
