    ISU to Host National Duals Midwest Regional

    Iowa State athletics director Jamie Pollard announced today that the Cyclones have worked out an agreement with the National Wrestling Coaches Association to host one of four 2012 Cliff Keen Division I National Dual Meet regionals, Feb. 12, in Hilton Coliseum.
    Regional 1 in Ames will feature three schools that placed among the top eight wrestling squads at the 2011 National Duals in Iowa State (eighth), Wisconsin (third) and Virginia Tech (second). Iowa, which did not compete in the 2011 National Duals and placed third as a team at the NCAA meet, will compete in Ames. Northern Iowa and Oregon State round out the field. The Region 1 winner will advance to the National Dual Meet Championships, to be held Feb. 19.
    Ticket information and further details will be announced soon.
    “This is a tremendous opportunity for our student-athletes, coaches and fans to be part of hosting the national wrestling dual championships,” Pollard said. “I really appreciate the Big 12 Conference working with us on our men’s and women’s basketball schedules to make Hilton Coliseum available to host this prestigious event. That support demonstrates how important wrestling is to the Big 12 Conference and to our institution.”
    The 2011-12 wrestling season will showcase an exciting new format for the NWCA/Cliff Keen Division I National Dual Meet Championships that will feature four regional locations and a culminating championship for the final four teams that advance out of each region. The 24 participating teams for the 2012 event were selected based primarily off the final 2010-11 NWCA Team Rankings as determined by the NWCA/USA Today Division I Coaches Poll.
    Region 1 - Iowa State (host), Iowa, Oregon State, Virginia Tech, Wisconsin and Northern Iowa.
    Region 2 – Cornell (host), Central Michigan, Oklahoma, Purdue, Illinois and American.
    Region 3 – Rutgers (host), Minnesota, Kent State, Michigan, Missouri and Cal Poly.
    Region 4- Oklahoma State (host), Boise State, Ohio State, Nebraska, Wyoming and Tennessee-Chattanooga.

    Re: ISU to Host National Duals Midwest Regional

    So, when do tickets go on sale? I'm going to go ahead and guess that tickets are sold out within 8 hours for Region 1. I don't know if any of the others will sell out.

    Not sure how you conclude that Iowa is unseeded.

    How do you figure that? The 4 host sites aren't seeded 1 through 4.

    No, we have the stacked division because Iowa, ISU, UNI, Wisconsin, and VT are all there.
