The Gophers will wrestle Iowa at 11 a.m. Sunday in the Sports Pavilion for the 102nd time.
The Hawkeyes lead the all-time series, which began in 1921, 72-28-1 but the teams have split the past six meetings. Iowa won 34-6 last year at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
The No. 10 Gophers (6-3, 5-2 Big Ten) are coming off road wins over Indiana and Purdue. No. 3 Iowa (9-2, 5-1) also has won its past two matches after back-to-back losses to Oklahoma State and Penn State in mid-January.
There will be two matches Sunday between top 10 wrestlers:
• At 125 pounds, No. 6 Ethan Lizak of the Gophers vs. No. 1 and undefeated Thomas Gilman.
• At 157, No. 9 Jake Short of the Gophers vs. No. 2 Michael Kemerer.
The Big Ten Network will televise the dual meet live.
