No. 6 Badgers fall to No. 1 Iowa 32-3 in Big Ten wrestling opener

Iowa won the first seven matches — and nine of 10 total — to earn a 32-3 victory over the Badgers before a crowd of 10,603 at Hawkeye-Carver Arena.

UW entered its Big Ten Conference opener undefeated at 6-0 and coming off a resounding victory over No. 18 Utah Valley on Nov. 23. But the Badgers were not able to generate momentum against the Hawkeyes (3-0, 1-0).

• At 133 pounds, No. 2 Austin DeSanto beat No. 1 Seth Gross 6-2. It was Gross' first loss at 133 since the 2017 NCAA finals.
