    The No. 5 Minnesota wrestling team picked up its 10th win of the season and its fourth win over a ranked opponent on Sunday afternoon, taking down No. 13 Iowa State 26-13 in Ames.

    The Gophers (10-3 overall, 1-0 Big Ten) earned bonus points in four of the six matches they won on Sunday including two technical falls, a major decision, and a forfeit in the 141 lbs. match that netted Minnesota six points. The Cyclones started the afternoon by jumping out to an early 4-0 lead when top-ranked Jonathon Reader earned a 13-3 major decision over No. 8 Scott Glasser in the 174 lbs. match, but Minnesota answered right back in the next match when Kevin Steinhaus, ranked ninth in the nation by Intermat, scored an 18-2 technical fall over Richard Shafer in the 184 lbs. bout that earned the Gophers five points. The two Midwest powerhouses traded a pair of decisions in the remaining upper weights as No. 17 Jerome Ward scored a 5-2 win over Joe Nord in the 197 lbs. match while ninth-ranked Tony Nelson picked up a 6-1 win over No. 17 Kyle Simonson at heavyweight.

    From there the Gophers would go on four-match winning streak that netted a total of 18 points. In the 125 lbs. match, No. 5 Zach Sanders earned a 20-4 technical fall over Brandon Jacobs that was followed up with an 18-5 major decision in the 133 lbs. match when David Thorn emerged the victor over Benjamin Cash. Iowa State forfeited the 149 lbs. match, giving Minnesota an additional six points before Danny Zilverberg closed out the scoring for Minnesota with a 6-2 decision over Max Mayfield in the 149 lbs. match.

    The Cyclones would bounce back with wins via decision in the final two matches, but the Gophers were already too far out in front, and the nation's No. 5 Division I program would go on to win the match 26-13.

    Minnesota returns to action next weekend with another road trip. The Gophers take on Purdue next Friday before meeting Illinois a week from today. Both duals will be streamed online at BigTenNetwork.com.

    Surprised to see Weatherman get the win over Grygelko.

    Really ??-I'd be surprised to see G win a big 10 match. Sorenson over Yohn kinda surprising -but Yohn not that good.

    I am hoping Leglace was kidding on that one? I think Yohn is decent he's just not as good as his ranking in my opinion YET. Who knows, maybe he will earn that ranking before season's end. He has improved quite a bit in the last 18 months.

    Yohn is every bit as good as anyone in the group from around 6-15, all those guys (after Burroughs, Howe, Kerber, Caldwell, and Asper) are about the same.

    Does ISU have anything in pipeline for 125. Seems like they've been giving up a MD most duals.

    Yeah, they've got Ryak Finch redshirting this year and poised to take over 125 next season. He's been highly touted and has faired rather well in open tournaments so it seems he should do well for them next season.
