Iowa State and Iowa are two of the most prominent programs in the history of the NCAA. The two have combined for 31 team titles, 141 individual champions, and 577 All-Americans. While Iowa has largely dominated the rivalry in the modern era, it is still one of the greatest rivalries in college wrestling history.

  • Iowa leads the series 65-16-2

  • Iowa has won 15 straight, 30 of the last 31, and 54 of the last 58

  • Iowa State was 9-5-1 before Dan Gable took over as head coach of Iowa, was 5-36-1 during Gable, and is 2-24 since

  • They have wrestled every season since the 1972-73 season

  • In ‘76-’92, ‘96-’99, ‘00-’02 they wrestled at least twice. Five times the result changed in the second matchup of the season

  • They wrestled a remarkable four times in the ‘89-’90 season

  • In 1912 and 1913 the two teams wrestled, but they were officially ruled exhibitions. Iowa won both times, 4-0 and 2.5-1.5

  • Iowa’s longest win streak is 30 (Feb. 21, 1987, to Dec. 7, 2003)

  • Iowa State’s longest win streak is six (Feb. 10, 1917, to Feb. 27, 1936)

  • Current Iowa head coach Tom Brands is 14-0 as a coach against Iowa State

  • Since 2004, the rivalry has been referred to as the Cy-Hawk Series for all sports. In an extremely on-brand move from the state, the Iowa Corn Promotion Board and the Iowa Corn Growers Association started sponsoring the rivalry in 2011. It is now officially called the “Iowa Corn Cy-Hawk Series.”

  • The two schools introduced the Dan Gable Traveling Trophy in 2010
