    Home and away

    When was the last time ISU and IA were scheduled for home and away during the same season?

    Anyone know why it was stopped and why it would not be a good reason to start it up again?

    Last time I checked travel costs were an issue in sports (especially wrestling), and I think OSU and OU still do it.

    1991, after facing off four times in 1990 in a 37-day span (Ames, Iowa City, and twice at National Duals).

    The two biggest problems are:
    (1) NCAA limit on dates of competition
    (2) Finding an open date in the second semester. The Big Ten schedule swallows a lot of dates.

    Thanks for the info. Didn't realize they met that may times that year. I guess if ISU took care of business last year they could have met in the Nat. duals final.

    Looking at their second semester schedule it looks pretty tight. Only non-conference match is with Okie state.

    As a wrestling fan, whenever ISU/IA compete, it never gets old.
