    Big Ten Network to Televise Minnesota-Iowa State Wrestling Meet Live in HD

    Sunday's dual matchup features nation's top-ranked teams

    CHICAGO – The Big Ten Network will televise the dual wrestling meet between No. 1 Minnesota and No. 2 Iowa State live at 2 PM CT Sunday from Minneapolis. The meet will be televised in high definition.

    "It doesn't get any bigger than No. 1 vs. No. 2," Big Ten Network President Mark Silverman said, "and we're honored to bring a live national telecast of this event to more than 30 million homes."

    The Golden Gophers, last year's NCAA champions, have won 23 consecutive dual meets, dating back to Nov. 25, 2006. They are ranked first in every national wrestling poll.

    Minnesota (3-0) enters the match with a perfect dual record following convincing victories against Northern Illinois, Northern Colorado and North Dakota State, a shutout. Iowa State (5-0) was last year's NCAA runner-up.

    The two teams met twice last season in dual competition. The Gophers were victorious both times, winning 19-13 in Ames and 24-11 in Minneapolis.

    The Gophers are the two-time defending Big Ten champions while the Cyclones are the defending Big 12 champions.

    This event marks the first of 10 wrestling meets to air on the Big Ten Network this season. The full schedule will be announced once dates and times are finalized.

    Earlier this fall, the Big Ten Network became the first new network in cable or satellite television history to reach 30 million homes in its first 30 days. The network is available through DIRECTV, DISH Network, AT&T U-Verse, Insight Communications, WideOpenWest, RCN, Service Electric and more than 160 other cable operators.

    This is great. I still may make the five hour drive. It is nice to know I can DVR it also. There is a contact us page on the big ten networks website. I think we should all provide them some positive feedback for doing this.

    I also emailed the BTN and received the good word the same day as the post. I guess pinging the networks sometimes does work.
