The Gophers wrestling team, ranked No. 2 by Amateur Wrestling News, faces No. 1 Penn State at 1 p.m. Sunday at the Sports Pavilion with a chance to tie for the Big Ten regular-season title with a victory.

The Nittany Lions (13-0, 7-0 Big Ten) have 10 wrestlers ranked among the nation’s top 20, the Gophers (9-1, 6-1) have eight. There could be as many four matchups between top seven wrestlers: No. 2 Zain Retherford, PSU, vs. No. 7 Chris Dardanes at 141 pounds; No. 3 Matt Brown, PSU, vs. No. 6 Logan Storley at 174; No. 3 Ed Ruth, PSU, vs. No. 5 Kevin Steinhaus, and No. 6 Morgan McIntosh vs. No. 1 Scott Schiller at 197.

The dual meet is sold out, but it will be televised live by the Big Ten Network.
