The Iowa Hawkeyes Wrestling team announced the 2014-2015 season schedule early Tuesday morning. The only exciting home dates include Iowa State and the Cliff Keen National Duals.
What makes Iowa-Iowa State an exciting dual is not the matchups (it should be another fairly lopsided win for Iowa), but the fact the Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Series will happen on Nov. 28th, Black Friday. This SHOULD be a sold out dual between old rivals because plenty of fans will be in town for the Iowa vs Nebraska football game. If all goes well, that day could include a pair of beatdowns of hated rivals. Iowa will look to extend their winning streak to ten straight in the series.
The rest of the home schedule isn’t worth talking about until our dual previews (Illinois, Michigan, and Northwestern will have some tough individual matchups, but they don’t appear to yet have the overall firepower of the top teams) so we will focus in on Iowa’s road schedule against heavy hitters Ohio State, Oklahoma State, Minnesota and Penn State. Did we mention before that all of these duals the Iowa Hawkeyes will be headed back to Midlands? This tournament recently has not been as tough as in years past (although it remains to be seen who’s in the field this year), but as it lies on the schedule here it starts a brutal two week stretch for the Hawkeyes. Pack your bags gentlemen because this will be one heck of a road dual schedule.
