Iowa wrestling’s Tom Brands’ pre-Michigan press conference

Hear from Iowa wrestling’s Tom Brands on Drake Ayala, Michael Caliendo and more ahead of dual vs. Michigan

The No. 2 Iowa wrestling team (10-0) will try to remain undefeated Friday in a Big Ten Conference dual at No. 12 Michigan. Action starts at 7:30 pm

Michigan, led by coach Sean Bormet, has nine wrestlers in its lineup ranked in the top 20, headlined by junior 133-pounder Dylan Ragusin (No. 4), graduate student 149-pounder Austin Gomez (No. 6) and graduate student 174 -pounder Shane Griffith (No. 3). The squad has lost two of its last three duals (Penn State and Ohio State) but is a formidable opponent and has given the Hawkeyes fits in the past.

This is Iowa’s last tune-up before the Feb. 9 clash vs. Iowa. No. 1 Penn State at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

Follow along for live updates and results from Friday night’s dual. Iowa wrestlers listed first.

197 pounds: No. 11 Zach Glazier vs. Bobby Striggow

Glazier continued its strong 2023-24 season with a quick takedown in the first period. Striggow escaped with 90 seconds left but Glazier had little trouble getting a leg and another takedown. The Hawkeye led 6-1 after the first three minutes. He continued to work his offense in the second period and led 9-2 with more than 2 1/2 minutes of riding time entering the third period. Glazier got another single-leg in the third and it was 13-2. Then 16-4 and swelling toward tech fall territory. He got the takedown at the buzzer and his seventh tech fall of the season 19-4. Iowa’s most dominant victory of the night, and Glazier (19-0) keeps writing his feel-good story. Michigan 20, Iowa 11

184 pounds: Aiden Riggins vs. Joseph Walker

A couple of unranked wrestlers went at it in this bout. Riggins fought off a Walker shot and turned it into a takedown and a 3-0 lead with a minute left in the opening period. It wasn’t long before Walker cut it to 3-2 with a reversal. 4-2 Riggins after one. Walker picked up a second reversal to make it 4-4 with 30 seconds left in the second period. Riggins was on bottom to start the third and got a reversal and the 6-4 lead. Walker escaped to make it 6-5, and he held on for the victory. This was the most entertaining match of the night thus far. Michigan leads Iowa 20-6 and will pick up its first home victory in this series in 20 years

(Side note: Another Ripa-Consuelos sighting on the BTN telecast. They’re sitting next to new Michigan football coach Sherrone Moore. They’re big Michigan wrestling fans, apparently.)

174 pounds: No. 8 Patrick Kennedy vs. #3 Shane Griffith

Scoreless first period (we’ve heard that a few times tonight). Griffith got a headlock on Kennedy from top position and picked up a four-point nearfall. 4-0 lead and 2 full minutes of riding time after two periods. Griffith kept his offense rolling in the third period and it was 8-0 with 1:15 to go. Kennedy had no answers against the nation’s No. 3-ranked 174-pounder. Griffith secures the bonus point with a 12-1 major decision. Almost everything has gone Michigan’s way tonight in Ann Arbor. Michigan 20, Iowa 3

165 pounds: No. 6 Michael Caliendo vs. Beau Mantanona

Mantanona somehow avoided a takedown in the first period after Caliendo put on the pressure for about 20 seconds on the edge of the mat. Mantanona soon received a well-deserved stalling call. Scoreless after one period. Caliendo started down and got the quick escape, then quickly went to work again. He was an aggressor early and Mantanona looked overmatched. After a takedown it was a 4-0 lead. Mantanona got a two-point reversal to make it 4-3 in the third. Caliendo escaped for a 5-3 lead and then worked his way to another takedown and an 8-3 advantage. Mantanona nearly had a big move in the final 20 seconds but Caliendo won 9-4 and improved to 19-1 this season. Michigan 16, Iowa 3

(Side note: Hollywood celebrities Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos were shown in the crowd during this match. They are big wrestling fans, apparently.)

157 pounds: No. 2 Jared Franek vs. #12 Will Lewan

Iowa desperately needed a victory from its second-ranked 157-pound transfer from North Dakota State, and it didn’t happen. After a scoreless opening period, Lewan quickly escaped for a 1-0 lead. The rest of the period was a lot of hand-fighting and no points. Franek started the third period on the bottom and escaped 10 seconds in. Lewan picked up a stall warning after Franek took a decent leg shot. Later, Franek nearly had a takedown but Lewan used a nice whizzer to avoid the points. Both wrestlers showed some good defense in the third period and it was 1-1 at the buzzer. Also 1-1 after the sudden victory period as fatigue set in for both wrestlers. Lewan escaped in two seconds in the second tiebreaker to get the 3-2 victory. Iowa wrestlers are 0-5 heading into the intermission. Michigan 16, Iowa 0

149 pounds: Victor Voinovich vs. #6 Austin Gomez

Gomez got an escape and a takedown early in the second period for a four-point lead after a scoreless first. Gomez rode Voinovich for the entire third period and won 5-1 to improve to 5-0 this season. A night to forget for Voinovich, and only make a disastrous dual for Tom Brands’ Hawkeyes. Michigan 13, Iowa 0

141 pounds: No. 1 Real Woods vs. No. 19 Sergio Lemley

Lemley nearly had a takedown in the final seconds of the first period against the nation’s top-ranked 141-pounder, but Woods is awfully tough to score against. Lemley, a true freshman from Indiana, then posted a six-point move in the second period to shock the crowd and Big Ten Network audience. Woods was lucky to avoid the pin. Lemley led 6-1 after two periods and continued to stay aggressive in the third. He thoroughly dominated Woods and won by major decision 14-2, nearly getting a pin in the final seconds. Michigan 10, Iowa 0

133 pounds: No. 18 Cullan Schriever vs. #4 Dylan Ragusin

Ragusin got an early takedown in the first period and then piled up lots of riding time (1:52 by the end of the first period). The deficit was 4-1 entering the third period. Schriever escaped early in the third period to make it 4-2. The riding-time point gave Ragusin a 5-2 victory. Not much offense for either wrestler. The Hawkeyes probably felt fortunate to not take a bonus-point loss in this one. Michigan 6, Iowa 0

125 pounds: No. 5 Drake Ayala vs. #12 Michael DeAugustino

Ayala and DeAugustino got acquainted in the first period but neither wrestler got on the scoreboard. Ayala started down in the second period and got the escape after a brief scare. It was 1-0 after two periods after a brief time-out to take care of some blood on Ayala. DeAugustino quickly tied the score in the third period with an escape of his own. Ayala had a couple of nice shots but DeAugustino was able to scramble and get stalemates. It was 1-1 after the end of regulation. Ayala did a great job of scrambling in the first overtime period and appeared to avoid the takedown. Michigan asked for a video review, but decided to give the brick back and make it an official’s review. The original call was upheld − no takedown. Ayala and DeAugustino got all tangled up late in the sudden-victory period but both wrestlers displayed incredible defense and forced the 30-second tiebreakers. DeAugustino got an escape in the first period to take a 2-1 lead entering the final OT period. DeAugustino held on for the entire 30 seconds and won 2-1. Michigan 3, Iowa 0

7:38 pm: Here we go.

Dual will start at 125 pounds

UPDATE: Penn State wins the dual 28-9.
