When you are an Iowa Wrestling fan you circle the Iowa-Iowa State dual meet on the schedule right away when it comes out. Iowa-Iowa State is always a big deal in the wrestling crazy state of Iowa.

#1 ranked Iowa will travel to Ames to do battle with #13 Iowa State in Hilton Coliseum at 6 PM CST on Sunday. You can expect this intense rivalry to entertain wrestling fans. With the coaching staff at Iowa State consisting of three former Iowa NCAA national champions in Kevin Dresser, Brett Metcalf, and Derek St. John the rivalry may have gone up another notch.

For Iowa fans we have to be wondering if we will see the entire varsity lineup in the Black and Gold. I have no inside information but I can only guess that we will see a majority of the starters in the lineup. Of course you have to start with Spencer Lee who has not appeared in competition yet this year. I would think it would take a specific situation for Lee or any of the Iowa varsity wrestlers to not compete in this dual meet. Especially for the seniors in their last Iowa-Iowa State dual meet.

Yes I do believe we will see Lee compete in his last Iowa-Iowa State dual meet. I will put Michael Kemerer on that list as well. The only starter that I do not believe we will see is Max Murin at 149 who is out with an injury. Cobe Siebrecht is ready to go at 149.

I believe every other starter will be in the lineup. Hey, it’s time and I want to see the full firepower of Iowa Wrestling out on the mat in Hilton in the Iowa-Iowa State dual meet on Sunday.

That would mean we would see Jacob Warner in the lineup at 197. Warner competed at the Luther Open but has missed the first two dual meets with an injury. I do not know who we see at 184 for the Hawks. If I had to guess I would say Myles Wilson. Abe Assad has been out the first two dual meets. Iowa State will have #12 Marcus Coleman.

Iowa State will put seven ranked wrestlers out on the mat with #1 ranked and defending national champion David Carr at 157. Carr will face #8 Kaleb Young in the biggest matchup of ranked wrestlers in the meet. At 141 we may see #2 Jaydin Eierman vs. #6 Ian Parker.

The Iowa-Iowa State dual will be streamed live on ESPNt in a subscription service. 

There is an HWC Social in Ames before the dual meet.


I am expecting an intense and competitive dual meet that will entertain wrestling fans.

I cannot wait.
