NEWTON, Iowa — Less than two weeks before Iowa travels to Minneapolis to take on Minnesota in a big Jan. 30 dual meet, the Hawkeyes have moved past the Gophers as the top team in WIN’s Jan. 19 Tournament Power Index (TPI) Rankings. Iowa is also No. 1 in the dual rankings. WIN Magazine’s rankings are presented by Cliff Keen Athletic.

WIN’s TPI is based on where a school is projected to finish in this March’s NCAA Division I Championships in St. Louis, based on schools’ currently ranked individuals and not on a school’s dual-meet record.

Both Iowa and Minnesota are undefeated in dual competitions with 9-0 records, but with seven wrestlers picked to eventually finish among the Top 8 wrestlers at this year’s NCAAs, the Hawkeyes have earned 88 points in WIN’s latest TPI.

Minnesota, which was ranked No. 1 last week, is one point behind Iowa with 87 points and five wrestlers are predicted to finish in the Top 8.

Point totals are broken down by the following projected placements: 1st – 20 (16 AA points + 4 advancement points); 2nd – 16 (12+4); 3rd – 13.5 (10+3.5); 4th – 12.5 (9+3.5); 5th – 10 (7+3); 6th – 9 (6+3); 7th – 6.5 (4+2.5); 8th – 5.5 (3+2.5); 9th/12th – 2; 13th/16th – 1.5; 17th-20th – 1. TPI points will be lower than the final NCAA tournament points because it does not include bonus points.

Among other programs, Iowa State made the biggest jump in WIN’s Dual Team rankings — from 17th to 13th — after the Cyclones defeated sixth-ranked Virginia Tech, 21-12, in Ames on Jan. 18. The Hokies fell to No. 14 in this week’s poll.

WIN’s next updated TPI Rankings, Dual and Individual rankings will be announced on Monday, Jan. 26.
