The Minnesota Gophers wrestling team falls 27-11 to the third-ranked Iowa Hawkeyes on Sunday, February 5, 2017 at the Sports Pavilion in Minneapolis.

The Sports Pavilion packed in 3,749 fans to watch the annual meeting of the two Big Ten rivals.  The fans, who congregated at the unorthodox time of 11:00 a.m. on Sunday morning, witnessed the Hawkeyes sprint out of the gate, winning the first three matches, leaving the Gophers in a 19-0 hole that they would not dig out of.
