SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa wrestling team has released its 2012-13 schedule, which includes eight home meets and seven away during the regular season.

The Hawkeyes are scheduled against six teams that finished in the top 10 in 2012: Penn State (1), Minnesota (2), Ohio State (5), Oklahoma State (6), Illinois (7), and Lehigh (8). Iowa finished third at the NCAA championships in March.

Notable meets

Iowa will face the Cyclones at home this season as part of the Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk series on Dec. 1.

Iowa will participate in the first-ever Grapple at the Garden dual-meet tournament in Madison Square Garden in New York City on Dec. 16. The Hawkeyes will face off against Hofstra, which finished 23rd in 2012, and Bucknell, which tied for 51st place at NCAAs last season.

The Hawkeyes will travel to Stillwater, Okla., to face the Cowboys on Jan. 13, 2013. Oklahoma State won the 2012 dual in memorable fashion last season, 17-16 on a criteria-point tiebreaker.

Iowa will face NCAA champion Penn State at home on Super Bowl Sunday on Feb. 3. The Nittany Lions won their second-consecutive national title in March.
