PSU wrestling vs. Wisconsin moved to Tuesday

Penn State’s next wrestling meet had been scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 7, but that has been changed. The Nittany Lions now will go up against Wisconsin on Tuesday at 5 p.m. in Madison.

The change was made because Michigan’s wrestling team and entire athletic program are on a two-week pause because of COVID. Penn State was scheduled to take part in a tri-meet at Michigan next Sunday.

Since the Penn State team was already in Chicago after wrestling at Northwestern on Saturday, the decision was made to have it go to Madison to wrestle the Badgers on Tuesday.

From PSU’s release tonight:

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa.; January 31, 2021 – The Penn State Nittany Lions (1-0, 1-0 B1G), ranked No. 3 in the latest InterMat Tournament Power Index, will head directly to Madison, Wis., to get ready for a dual with the Wisconsin Badgers (1-3, 1-3 B1G) on Tuesday, Feb. 2.

The dual was to be part of a tri-meet at Michigan on Feb. 7, but the Wolverines have paused all athletic activities.  With Penn State in Chicago after winning two duals at Northwestern, the team will now head to Madison to take on the Badgers on Tuesday afternoon at 5 p.m. Eastern / 4 p.m. Central (local).
