Gopher wrestling National Duals Champions for second straight year

The Gophers beat No. 1 Oklahoma State at the National Duals Championship Saturday to win the championship for the second straight year.

The win is No. 3 Minnesota’s eight crown in program history as the Gophers defeated Virginia Tech and Iowa earlier in the day at Williams Arena before facing off against the Cowboys in the finals.

Minnesota won seven of 10 matches, including the final four duals to win 28-9.

The Gophers will head into the Big Ten Championships starting on March 9 in Champaign, Ill. before finishing the season at the NCAA Championships in Des Moines at the end of March.
