The all-time attendance record for a single dual meet is 15,996. This morning, the University of Iowa sold more tickets than that in three hours and they've also signed head coach Tom Brands to an extension.

Iowa and Oklahoma State will wrestle at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City Saturday, November 14th at 11 am. Tickets went on sale at this morning at 8 and by 11 am, over 18,000 tickets had been sold. The tickets for the single-match are just $10.

Now all we need is for the weather to be cooperative to allow the outdoor event to happen. If it does, the 18,000+ already sold will guarantee that Iowa will again hold the attendance record for a single dual. Iowa has led the nation in home wrestling attendance each of the last nine years so it seems only fitting this record return to Iowa City.

The University of Iowa also announced this afternoon that head coach Tom Brands has signed a contract extension that will keep him in charge of the black and gold singlets at Iowa through the 2019-20 season.
