COLLEGE WRESTLING: Hawkeyes blank second-straight foe

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — The top-ranked University of Iowa wrestling team batted 10-for-10 in a 41-0 win at No. 18 Purdue on Sunday in Big Ten Conference action.

The Hawkeyes (6-0, 3-0) won four top-10 matchups and scored bonus points in half of their bouts, including two falls, two technical falls and one major decision.

“I like bonus points. It makes it uneven and puts pressure on those guys,” said Iowa head coach Tom Brands. “It doesn’t have to be tight. Send messages to the rest of country. I like pins. I like bonus points.”

Spencer Lee and Austin DeSanto led off at 125 and 133 pounds, outscoring their opponents a combined 34-1 in 6 minutes, 19 seconds. In a matchup of top five opponents, Lee defeated No. 5 Devin Schroder 17-0 in 2:55. DeSanto used three takedowns and 12 nearfall points to end his match 24 seconds into the second period, 17-1.

Iowa hosts No. 2 Nebraska on Saturday at 8 p.m. at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
