The Big Ten wrestling tournament is back and better than ever. The premier wrestling conference heads to Lincoln, NE on March 5 and 6 for the craziest two days in college wrestling. College wrestling had a full year in 2021-22 after the shortened 2021 campaign amid the COVID-19 pandemic, so most wrestlers got a full slate of matches heading into the postseason.
Penn State is the favorite to win the team title this time around, surprise, surprise. Iowa could be in the mix as well and you can’t rule out Michigan despite being a bit underwhelming in the regular season with their loaded lineup, on paper.
As far as the weight classes are concerned, the Big Ten received the most allocations out of every conference, including an astounding 12 allocations at 184 pounds. The Nittany Lions could have the most individual champions while some other schools could be in the mix, outside of Iowa.
Olympic Gold Medalist Gable Steveson (Minnesota) also wrestles this tournament for the final time, 125 pounds is open without Iowa’s Spencer Lee and 141 pounds might be the tightest weight class in the country.
