    #2 Oklahoma State vs #3 Iowa Preview

    Oklahoma State vs Iowa Preview: Another Wild Installment of History Set for Sunday

    Oklahoma State and Iowa are two of the most storied programs in the country. From their Olympic and World Champion head coaches to their amazing history of winning under the biggest and brightest lights, these teams have cemented themselves into the fabric of our sport's history and record books. Now, they are set to face off for the 57th time. Currently, the Cowboys lead the all-time series with a 29-25-2 record against the Hawkeyes.

    This will also be the first time that Coach Brands and the Hawks make the trip to Stillwater, OK since 2019 when the teams had an epic battle that nearly blew the roof off Gallagher-Iba Arena. On that night, Nick Piccininni pinned Spencer Lee in a cradle on the edge of the mat sending the crowd into a frenzy. Daton Fix went full Cowboy and put the toughest ride on Austin DeSanto at 133 in the following match and Chandler Rogers bumped up to 174 and slapped an assassin on Mitch Bowman to ignite an OK State shutout in the final four matches of the dual to give them the 27-12 win in front of a sold-out crowd.

    Since then, it’s been all Hawks. They dominated the following year in Carver-Hawkeye as Lee got his revenge over Piccininni to start the 34-6 beating they sent Oklahoma State home with. Iowa went on to claim 23-9 and 28-7 wins in 2022 and 2023, respectively.
