IOWA CITY, IA - The Iowa wrestling team lost its Big Ten home opener to Wisconsin, 21-14, Saturday night in Carver-Hawkeye Arena. It was Wisconsin's first win in the series since 1966 and its first-ever victory over Iowa in Carver-Hawkeye Arena. Iowa fell to 10-3 (2-1 Big Ten), while the Badgers improved to 16-1 (2-1 Big Ten).

The dual started at 125 pounds, where Hawkeye sophomore Charlie Falck held off a late charge by Wisconsin's Collin Cudd to win 12-9. It was Iowa's only lead of the dual, as the Badgers rolled off decisions at the next four weights to take a 12-3 lead. Hawkeye junior Mark Perry's 18-2 match termination over Jake Donar at 165 made up some ground, and senior Eric Luedke 5-0 decision over Mike Felling at 174 pulled Iowa to within one team point (12-11). But Wisconsin scored a decision at 184 and a first-period pin at 197 to put the team win out of reach for the Hawkeyes. Iowa junior heavyweight Matt Fields won the final match of the night - a 6-3 decision over Kyle Massey.

Iowa (10-3, 2-1 Big Ten) will hit the road for its next Big Ten duals. The Hawkeyes will wrestle at Michigan (1-4-1, 0-1 Big Ten) Friday, February 2 at 6:30 p.m. (CT) and at Penn State (10-4, 1-2 Big Ten) Sunday, February 4 at 11 a.m. (CT). The Iowa-Penn State dual will be aired live on FOX Sports Pittsburgh.
