The home mat advantage will play a large part in this dual. Iowa, the national duals championship team, has a knack for coming up big in clutch situations, but they have also had a difficult time stopping the Cowboys in recent history. Watch for new ASICS & Adidas Wrestling Shoes to possibly break out in this dual for testing.

125: No. 4 Matt McDonough v. No. 9 Chris Notte
I’ve really impressed with this freshmen. And here I thought this weight would be the Hawks' weak point. McDonough DEC Iowa 3-0

133: No. 4 Daniel Dennis v. No. 6 Jordan Oliver
I like JO, (Easton, PA guy) but for some reason my gut tells me something is going to get inside his head & will lose in Carver. Dennis DEC Iowa 6-0

141: No. 11 Montell Marion v. No. 5 Jamal Parks
Again I am going to claim HEAD CASE & give Iowa the win. Marion DEC Iowa 9-0

149: No. 1 Brent Metcalf v. UR Quentin Fuentes
Will Fuentes watch the Mueller match tapes from this weekend? Even if he does, it will do NO GOOD… Metcalf FALL Iowa 15-0

157: UR Aaron Jannsen v. No. 13 Neil Erisman
Jannsen is 8-2 so far this year & while the rest of his teammates are more heralded, as far as I am concerned HE is the reason Iowa beat ISU in their regular season dual. I like Jannsen to beat Erisman but four of Erisman’s losses have been a total of only seven points to ranked wrestlers. I see Erisman winning by two or three & maybe even in SV. Erisman DEC Iowa 15-3

165: No. 3 Ryan Morningstar v. No. 12 Alex Meade
You have to be impressed with Alex’s win over DS last month but since then he has gone 8-4. Still I think he gives M* all he can handle, with M* winning on a last second escape, avoiding SV. M* DEC Iowa 18-3

174: No. 2 Jay Borschel v. No. 7 Mike Benefiel
If there was an “upset” to pick this week I would say this would be the most likely candidate, but again I think Borschel pulls out a close victory holding off Benefiel revitalization of the Fireman’s carry for a two or three point win that clinches it for the Hawks. Borschel DEC Iowa 21-3

184: No. 9 Phil Keddy v. No. 13 Clayton Foster or UR Chris McNeil
I have to agree with several others here & say that if Foster was healthy I would probably pick him to beat Keddy but again I think the Hawkeye pulls it out with a last second TD to pull out a one or two point win. Keddy DEC Iowa 24-3

197: UR Luke Lofthouse v. No. 7 Alan Gelogaev
I think this is only match where Hawkeye fans will be embarrassed to watch. Gelogaev MAJOR Iowa 24-7

285: UR Jordan Johnson or UR Blake Raising v. No. 1 Jared Rosholt
I think Rosholt is the No. 1 285 right now & seeing his team lose so badly will piss him off. Rosholt FALL Iowa 24-13.
