Straight from the mat

"I loved our hustle and fight tonight! It is always tough to get a Big Ten road win. We need to build off of this for Sunday!"
- Head coach, Chris Bono

"It felt good to get a pin in the dual season and in the first period. I knew after the first takedown if I keep the pressure on he won't be able to keep up. And right at the last few seconds of the first period I was able to capitalize on top"
- Redshirt freshman, Jared Krattiger

"It feels good and it has been a long time coming. It feels really good to get that monkey off of my back and get the dual win. It was a good team win and hopefully we can keep it going."
- Redshirt senior, Taylor Watkins
