IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — The fourth-ranked Iowa wrestling team won nine of 10 matches and routed rival Iowa State 32-3, winning its ninth straight dual meet over the Cyclones. Top-ranked Matt McDonough and Derek Saint John cruised to easy decisions for the fourth-ranked Hawkeyes (6-0), who improved to 61-16-2 against Iowa State (0-2).

Mike Evans and Ethen Lofthouse posted early wins for Iowa. The Hawkeyes led 14-3 at intermission and finished off one of the more lopsided meets in the history of the rivalry — one of the biggest in collegiate Olympic sports. Iowa State’s Kyven Gadson was the only Cyclones wrestler to win a match as Iowa State fell to 0-7 against Iowa coach Tom Brands.
