The Lehigh wrestling team is heading to Iowa this week to face the #5 team in the nation on the mat.

The Mountain Hawk wrestlers, who had an up and down weekend, can earn a gigantic win in their next dual because they go to Iowa to face the 5th ranked Hawkeyes and several top ranked guys on the Iowa roster that includes a defending national champion. After a loss to Penn over the weekend, the young Mountain Hawk roster will certainly be amped up for the challenge come Thursday. The question is can they wrestle at a high enough level to beat a team like Iowa, especially in Iowa where the Hawkeyes have built one of the nation's best programs.
