    NORMAN, Okla. – No. 2 Iowa State wrestling team was victorious in its Big 12 Conference opener against 10th-ranked Oklahoma 21-12 Friday evening in the McCasland Field House. ISU’s Jon Reader turned in the standout performance with a technical fall for team bonus points at 165 pounds. ISU improves to 8-2 in duals. The Sooners fall to 12-2-1. The Cyclones will travel 85 miles north to Stillwater, Okla. for a clash with fourth-ranked Oklahoma State in Gallagher-Iba Arena Sunday at 2 p.m.

    “We still need to improve,†Iowa State head coach Kevin Jackson said. “There are still things that we can do better. We aren’t winning in some of the close matches and that is something we need to improve on. “

    The dual victory over the Sooners was Jackson’s first conference win of his coaching career.

    In wrestling there are #1 Iowa and #2 Iowa state and then there is just the rest. No one compares to these two schools. Not one bit.
