NU releases wrestling schedule

The Nebraska wrestling team announced the schedule for the 2012-13 season, which includes a trip to Madison Square Garden as well as matches against the top three NCAA finishers from 2012.

The Huskers open their season on Nov. 4 at the Warren Williamson/Daktronics Open in Brookings, S.D. The first dual of the season is against Northern Colorado in Greeley, Colo., on Nov. 10. It is the first of two non-conference road duals as the next night the Huskers face Wyoming in Laramie, Wyo.  The Huskers’ first conference home dual of the season is on the night of Nov. 16, as they will host 2012 NCAA runner-up Minnesota at the NU Coliseum at 7 p.m.

On March 9-10, Nebraska will make its second appearance in the Big Ten Championships in Champaign, Ill. Last season the Huskers produced four top-five finishers. The 2012-13 season concludes March 21-23 at the NCAA Championships in Des Moines, Iowa. Last year Nebraska finished 21st with 28 points. Freshman James Green (157) and junior Josh Ihnen (184) earned All-America honors, as eight Huskers qualified for the 2012 NCAA Championships.

Prior to the regular season, on Nov. 2 Nebraska will hold its annual Red-Black Intersquad meet at the Bob Devaney Sports Center.
