Penn State Wrestling to Host Iowa at Bryce Jordan Center

The Penn State wrestling team has announced its 2014-15 schedule, and for the second year in a row, a big match in the Bryce Jordan Center highlights the schedule. This year, the Nittany Lions will welcome the vaunted Iowa Hawkeyes into the BJC, who finished last season ranked fourth in the country.

Currently, the Iowa matchup is slated for February 8th at 2 p.m. That date and time, however, are subject to change as the Big Ten Network rolls out its coverage schedule.

Last December, the NCAA champion Nittany Lions faced off against Pitt in the first match held in the BJC since 2005. Penn State stomped the Panthers 28-9 in front of 15,996 people — the most to watch a single dual meet in NCAA history. It was also the most people to ever see a sporting event at the Jordan Center (sorry, Penn State hoops.)

The four time defending NCAA and Big Ten champions will host seven dual meets in the upcoming season. The team will open up its season at home against Lehigh on Nov. 9, and will compete against Virginia Tech, Indiana, Purdue, national runner-up Minnesota,  and Rider in the friendly confines of Rec Hall.

Matches are expected to be sold out once season tickets are renewed, so the Iowa showdown in the Bryce Jordan Center may serve as the only chance for many to see the national champions live in action. It will be the last Big Ten dual meet of the season for Penn State.

Ticket information for single-match tickets and the BJC Dual will be available in October.
