IOWA CITY — The defending national champion Iowa wrestling team will take on Oklahoma State in a unique dual on February 12th at Globe Life Field, the home of the Texas Rangers. It will also feature an international dual between the U-S and Iran. The Hawkeyes and Cowboys squared off outdoors in Kinnick Stadium back in November of 2015. Iowa coach Tom Brands.

Cowboys coach John Smith says work on the event began in the summer.

Oklahoma State and Iowa have combined to win 58 national titles




IOWA CITY — Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz says corner Riley Moss won’t play when the 2nd-ranked Hawkeyes host Purdue. Moss was injured while making an interception in the Hawkeyes’ 23-20 win over Penn State.

Senior defensive back Matt Hankins has been named the Bronco Nagurski National Player of the Week after recording an interception and a key fourth down stop in the win over Penn State. Hankins passed up a chance to enter the NFL Draft to return for his senior season.

Ferentz says while pleased with the 6-0 start, there are a lot of challenges remaining.

Ferentz was asked about Iowa fans booing several Penn State players who they thought were faking injuries when the Hawkeyes had the ball.

Iowa and Purdue kickoff at about 2:30 on Saturday afternoon, with the pre-game starting at about 12:30 on AM-1300 KGLO.




AMES — Iowa State returns from a bye week and will visit Kansas State in Big 12 play. The Cyclones are 3-2 overall and 1-1 in the Big 12 and now look ahead to a seven week run to the finish line.

That’s ISU coach Matt Campbell. It’s been 17 years since the Cyclones have won in Manhattan.

Campbell says K-State is a tradition-rich program.

The Cyclones hammered the Wildcats in Ames a year ago 45-0 but Campbell says K-State was shorthanded due to COVID and he does not take much from that game.

K-State is 0-2 in the Big 12
