The Gophers wrestling team, ranked No. 2, opened its Big Ten season with a 35-3 rout over No. 20 Purdue on Friday at the Sports Pavilion.

Purdue took a 3-0 lead, but Minnesota won the next nine matches and got a lot of extra points. David Thorn won 15-5 at 133 pounds to give the Gophers a 4-3 lead with the major decision. Dylan Ness got a pin at 157, and the Gophers got majors at the next three weights from Dan Zilverberg (10-2), Logan Storley (18-4) and Scott Schiller (15-7).

Tony Nelson, the nation’s top-rated heavyweight, got the final win with a 4-0 decision.

This was the Gophers’ seventh consecutive victory over the Boilermakers and they lead the all-time series 36-9-2.

U volleyball sweeps

Seniors Tori Dixon and Ashley Wittman had 15 kills apiece as the No. 11 Gophers swept No. 18 Michigan 25-18, 25-23, 25-19 in Ann Arbor.

Minnesota (24-6, 12-5 Big Ten) hit .385 and outblocked the Wolverines 12.5 to 6. Dixon and Karlie Hauer each had six block assists.

Michigan (17-11, 7-10) still holds a 6-5 lead over the Gophers in their past 11 meetings on its home court.

Road streak still alive

The No. 1-ranked Gophers women’s hockey team, whose winning streak came to an end at 62 games with a 3-2 loss to North Dakota last Sunday, will try to start another streak at 3 p.m. Saturday against Yale in New Haven, Conn.

The Gophers (13-1-0) still have a 35-game road winning streak. It goes back to Jan. 14, 2012. Minnesota has played the Bulldogs only once before, winning 2-1 on the road on Jan. 18, 1998. Yale (2-5-1) is coming off a road sweep of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and Union.

Gophers coach Brad Frost needs one more victory for 200 in his career.
