Scott Schiller's upset victory at 197 pounds gave the Gophers the lead for good, and Tony Nelson secured the team victory with a decision at heavyweight as No. 3 Minnesota rallied to defeat No. 5 Illinois 18-14 in a Big Ten wrestling dual on Monday night at the Sports Pavilion.

The Gophers (11-1, 5-0 Big Ten) trailed 11-3 and 14-6 before closing the match with victories by Logan Storley at 174, Kevin Steinhaus at 184, Schiller and Nelson.

Schiller, a sophomore ranked No. 12 at 197, edged No. 6 Mario Gonzalez, the defending Big Ten champ, 4-2 on the strength of a first-period takedown and two escapes.

Illinois (5-2, 1-2) used upset victories by Daryl Thomas over No. 5 Chris Dardanes at 133 and Caleb Ervin over No. 7 Dylan Ness to take the early lead.

U hockey teams remain No. 1

The Gophers men's and women's hockey teams retained their No. 1 rankings in the U.S. College Hockey Online polls. In the men's poll, the Gophers (17-3-4) received 48 of 50 first-place votes. In the women's poll, the Gophers (24-0) received all 15 first-place votes.

• Gophers senior captain Megan Bozek is one of 11 nominees for the Hockey Humanitarian Award, given annually to the player who excels not only on the ice but also shows exceptional character off the ice and in the community.
