NEWTON, Iowa — The NCAA Division I regular season has ended and Iowa State — fresh off a win over Missouri for a 13th-straight victory on the season — ranks as one of the hotter teams heading into the postseason as shown in WIN Magazine’s Feb. 21 Rankings, presented by Cliff Keen Athletic.

The Cyclones (15-1 and Big 12 Dual Team champions) moved up to No. 5 in WIN’s Dual rankings and feature eight ranked wrestlers in WIN’s rankings. Iowa State will now prepare for the upcoming the Big 12 Championships, one of seven NCAA qualifying tournaments that will be held in two weeks.

The following is a schedule of those seven conference championships:

Conference Date Location
ACC March 6 Charlottesville, Va.
Big 10 March 5-6 Lincoln, Neb.
Big 12 March 5-6 Tulsa, Okla.
EIWA March 5-6 Ithaca, N.Y.
MAC March 4-5 Athens, Ohio
Pac-12 March 6 Tempe, Ariz.
SoCon March 5 Boone, N.C.

 

Penn State, which ended the season with a 17-0 record, remained No. 1 in both WIN’s Dual Rankings and WIN’s Tournament Power Index, which predicts how teams will finish in the upcoming 2022 NCAA Division I Championships that will be held in Detroit, Mich., March 17-19.

Wrestlers ranked 9-12 earn two points each, followed by 1.5 points for wrestlers ranked 13-16 and 1 point for those ranked 17-20.

The Nittany Lions feature nine ranked wrestlers — including four No. 1-ranked wrestlers in Roman Bravo-Young (133), Nick Lee (141), Carter Starocci (174) and Aaron Brooks (184) — and earned 121.5 TPI points.
