Big Ten Reveals 2021-22 Wrestling Schedule

Penn State wrestling will open Big Ten play with a road trip to Maryland on January 7, 2022, the Big Ten announced Tuesday morning.

The conference’s wrestling schedule provided our first concrete glimpse at Penn State’s upcoming season. Here’s the full list of the Nittany Lions’ planned Big Ten matchups:

  • Penn State @ Maryland — Friday, January 7
  • Indiana @ Penn State — Sunday, January 9
  • Rutgers @ Penn State — Sunday, January 16
  • Penn State @ Michigan — Friday, January 21
  • Penn State @ Michigan State — Sunday, January 23
  • Penn State @ Iowa — Friday, January 28
  • Ohio State @ Penn State — Friday, February 4
  • Nebraska @ Penn State — February 6 or 11 (TBD)

As always, exact times and TV destinations for Penn State’s duals will be announced at a later date.

Although they’re not confirmed by Penn State just yet, three opposing programs have announced non-conference duals against the Nittany Lions. Penn State will match up against Sacred Heart in Manheim, Pa., host Army, and hit the road to face Penn.

Once Big Ten play wraps up, Penn State will join the rest of the conference in Lincoln, Nebraska, for this season’s Big Ten Wrestling Championships from March 5 to 6. Last season, both Roman Bravo-Young and Aaron Brooks won conference titles, while Nick Lee and Carter Starocci took second place at their respective weight classes.

Once the Big Ten’s tournament wraps up, Penn State will head up to Detroit for the NCAA Championships. The Nittany Lions will need to work hard to improve on last year’s showing, which featured four individual champions in Bravo-Young, Lee, Brooks, and Starocci. Despite an amazing effort, Penn State came up just short in the team race and finished 12.5 points behind the Iowa Hawkeyes.

So far, Penn State hasn’t announced any non-conference duals for the upcoming season. We’ll keep you posted as the Nittany Lions work out the remaining legs of their schedule.
