Indiana Wrestling has a tough schedule in a loaded Big Ten, but an inter-conference transfer may help. Here's a look at the schedule.

The Indiana Wrestling season begins on Nov. 5 with a trip to Charleston, South Carolina before the Hoosiers embark on what will be a difficult Big Ten slate.

While Indiana avoids No.2-ranked Iowa in Big Ten action, they travel to No.1-ranked Penn State and No. 15-ranked Ohio State, host No. 9 Michigan and, of course, face rival No. 19-ranked Purdue in Bloomington. 

Indiana will also compete at the Sheridan Invitational in Bethlehem, Pa., which is streaming live on FloWrestling and the FloSports app. 

The Hoosier begin the season ranked No. 25- in the FloWrestling preseason rankings.

Indiana will have help from Brayton Lee, the Minnesota transfer who finished sixth at the 2021 NCAA Championships at 157-pounds. He clocks in as the No. 24-ranked wrestler in his weight class. 

Graham Rooks also returns for IU as the No.6-ranked wrestler at 149-pounds. Derek Gilcher (No. 18 at 165-pounds) and Donnell Washington (No. 11 at 174) are also preseason-ranked wrestlers. 

Here’s what to know about the Indiana Wrestling schedule.
