For the first time in school history and in front of a crowd of over 1,400 fans, the Nebraska Cornhuskers achieved a perfect 10-0 record to start their season. With their first B1G conference win, they are also one step away from tying the longest winning streak in school history, but the top ranked Iowa Hawkeyes are the team to beat as they visit Lincoln next Friday.
Senior Tucker Lane (HWT) was the first win of the night as he joined the 100 win club. He won by decision (5-1). An emotional win in more than one way, Lane dedicated it as a birthday gift to his father (full story here). After Lane's match, the Huskers fell behind 7-3, but came back to finish with a final match score of 18-16. One of those victories came from Jake Sueflohn (141), a freshman who beat his fifth ranked opponent tonight with a 10-2 major decision. Nebraska's young talent combined with their seasoned starters allowed this historic evening to occur(Huskers.com full story).
The Huskers now must prepare for top ranked Iowa next Friday... the 13th (Pretty epic to say the least). With such young talent, it will be interesting to see how the 'Skers match up against the wrestling dynasty at Iowa.
