Iowa vs. Penn State Wrestling 2023: Here's What Happened Last Year

The biggest rivalry in NCAA wrestling is taking place again on Friday, Feb.9 as undefeated Penn State (No.1) takes on Iowa (No.2). The Duals Match will take place at 9 p.m at Carver-Hawkeye Arena in Iowa City, Iowa. 

Last year, Penn State took down Iowa 23-14 in front of a sold out crowd at the Bryce Jordan Center. 

The loss on the road for Iowa was a tough one as some rounds came down to extremely narrow margins. The star-studded matchup would return in the 2023 NCAA Wrestling Championships as well where Penn State won 137.5 to Iowa’s 82.5. 

Iowa has not won against Penn State since the 2019-20 season giving them fuel, while Penn State will look to keep the streak alive. 

Here’s a breakdown of Iowa vs. Penn State Wrestling 2023.
