Minnesota vs. Nebraska, 1.8

Nebraska's Mikey Labriola (top) rolls Minnesota's Jake Allar onto his back before pinning him in the 174-pound match Jan. 8 at the Devaney Sports Center.

The Nebraska wrestling team will compete in eight home events this upcoming season, and none will be bigger than the Big Ten Championships at Pinnacle Bank Arena.

The Huskers on Wednesday released their 2021-22 schedule, which will begin Nov. 11 with the Nebraska Duals.

The back end of NU's schedule has a lot of intrigue. NU will travel to Penn State and later host Big Ten powerhouse Iowa on Feb. 20, a meeting that typically draws a lot of Iowa fans to Lincoln. The Hawkeyes are the defending national champions.
