Iowa State won seven of nine matches contested, including four with bonus points (one fall, one technical fall, two major decisions).
With a forfeit at 125 pounds and a 5-3 decision by No. 10 Austin Gomez at 133, the Cyclones led 9-0 after two matches.
At 141 pounds, No. 19 Ian Parker dominated in a 12-1 major decision triumph over Kyran Hagan. Parker had 3:07 of riding time and a four-point near-fall in the match. The win improves Parker’s season record to 10-2.
No. 8 Jarrett Degen kept the Cyclones rolling at 149 pounds with a pin against Alec Hagan. Three takedowns staked Degen a 6-2 lead after the first period. Degen’s fourth takedown early in the second period turned into a fall when he got Hagan on his back with 0:04 left in the stanza.
Degen is now 9-1 on the year.
Ohio won a pair of matches at 157 and 165 pounds to trim the Cyclone lead to 19-6 through six bouts.
Marcus Coleman used six takedowns en route to a 14-6 major decision win over Joe Terry in the 174-pound match.
No. 16 Sam Colbray won a tight match, 9-8, at 184 pounds over Hunter Yeargan thanks to a takedown with 0:02 left in the final period. It appeared Colbray lost the match 8-7. However, Iowa State head coach Kevin Dresser asked for a review and got it when the official looked at the replay and issued the takedown in the closing seconds.
At 197 pounds, No. 5 Willie Miklus wasted little time in a 17-2 technical fall win against Nathan Hall. Miklus raced out to a 12-1 lead at the end of the first period behind a four-point near fall and multiple takedowns. Miklus eclipsed five minutes of riding time in the match, racking up 5:03 in the top position.
Gannon Gremmel wrapped up the dual with a 7-3 victory over Zach Parker at heavyweight.
ISU was deducted a team point for unsportsmanlike conduct.
