The No. 2 Iowa men’s wrestling team will take on No. 7 Iowa State at 1:33 p.m. at Carver-Hawkeye Arena on Sunday in the annual Cy-Hawk series. Both squads come into Sunday’s dual at 5-0 on the season.

The Hawkeyes have won the last 17 matchups against the Cyclones and 32 of the last 33. Iowa State has won 18 consecutive dual meets, marking the second-longest active winning streak in the country.

Senior first-ranked 125-pounder three-time national champion Spencer Lee appeared on Iowa’s probable bout sheet for the first time this season.

Senior No. 2 141-pound Real Woods, a two-time Pac-12 champion transfer from Stanford, is expected to debut in the Black and Gold against Iowa State freshman No. 12 Casey Swiderski.

Matt Sorochinsky and Titus Godbolt will officiate today’s dual.

125 POUNDS: No. 1 Spencer Lee (IA) over Corey Cabanban (IA St.) via major decision 

When Lee entered the mat to the tune of Queen’s “We Will Rock You,” Carver-Hawkeye Arena erupted. Lee set the tone early in the first period, collecting two take downs and two near falls. Although he appeared tired at the end of third period, Lee managed a dominating 16-5 victory.

Iowa leads Iowa State, 4-0.

133 POUNDS: Ramazan Attasauov (IA St.) over Cullan Schriever (IA) via decision 

After a tightly contested first two periods, Schriever entered the third down 1-0. The Hawkeye sophomore managed an escape in the third to tie it. Seconds later, Attasaouv grabbed Schriever’s leg to complete a match sealing two point takedown and win 3-1.

Iowa leads Iowa State, 4-3.

141 POUNDS: No. 2 Real Woods (IA) over No. 15 Casey Swiderski (IA St.) via decision

Woods, making his Hawkeye debut after transferring from Stanford, defeated Swiderski by a score of 4-2. Neither Woods or Swiderski could manage a point till the waning seconds of period two, when Woods was awarded one point after two stall warnings. About midway through the third period, Woods picked up the tie breaking escape point to win. Woods and Swiderski exchanged words afterwards.

Iowa leads Iowa State, 7-3.

149 POUNDS: No. 8 Paniro Johnson (IA St.) over No. 6 Max Murin (IA) via decision

In his second consecutive sudden victory match, Murin suffered a buzzer beating two point takedown. Johnson managed to lock his leg around Murin near the edge of the circle to win 3-1.

Iowa leads Iowa State 7-6.

157 POUNDS: No. 14 Cobe Siebrecht (IA) over Jason Kraisser (IA St.) via major decision 

Siebrecht looked impressive near the halfway point in period one, collecting a two-point takedown and a four-  point near fall. In the third period, Siebrecht had a near stranglehold on Kraisser’s right leg to earn the one point riding time and upgrade his victory to a major decision.

Iowa leads Iowa State, 11-6.

165 POUNDS: No. 3 David Carr (IA St.) over No. 13 Patrick Kennedy via decision 

In a matchup against a former national champion, Kennedy managed multiple escape points, but ultimately failed to overcome Carr’s takedowns in a x loss. Even though Kennedy did not earn a takedown, he kept the match close, losing 10-4.

Iowa leads Iowa State, 11-9.

174 POUNDS: No. 15 Nelson Brands (IA) over MJ Gaitan (IA St.) via major decision

Brands took no time to put points on the board, snatching Gaitan’s leg and throwing him to the canvas to earn multiple takedowns in the first period. Brands accomplished the same feat late in the third period to clinch a major decision victory and hype up the Hawkeye faithful.

Iowa leads Iowa State, 15-9.

184 POUNDS: No. 5 Marcus Coleman (IA St.) over No. 8 Abe Assad (IA) via decision

Assad has never wrestled in the Cy-Hawk dual before, whereas Coleman is undefeated in his matches against the Hawkeyes. Yet this difference was not evident in the match, as Assad only allowed three points for Coleman. Earning two escape points for himself, Assad lost 3-2.

Iowa leads Iowa State, 15-12.

197 POUNDS: No. 6 Yonger Bastida (IA St.) over No. 2 Jacob Warner (IA) via decision

Bastida was one of six opponents who beat Warner last season. This match featured arguably the loudest crowd, multiple coach’s challenges, but Warner lost 4-3. Warner had a good grip on Bastida’s leg in the waning seconds of the third period, but was unable to earn the takedown. Bastida’s post-match blown kiss towards the Hawkeye bench creates plenty of drama for this final, dual-deciding, heavyweight match.

Iowa is tied with Iowa State, 15-15. 

HEAVYWEIGHT: No. 4 Tony Cassioppi (IA) over No. 9 Sam Schuyler via decision

In a must win match, Cassioppi delivered quickly and effectively. Collecting over two minutes of riding time and a two-point takedown, Cassioppi lead 2-0 after the first period. The Hawkeye senior never relented, completing a dominating 9-2 victory.

FINAL: Iowa 18, Iowa State 15
