Oklahoma State had six of its ranked wrestlers lose Friday night, helping Iowa coast to a 24-6 dual victory over the Cowboys before 10,141 fans at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.

The Cowboys' Jon Morrison — previously unbeaten and ranked No. 1 in the nation at 133 pounds — suffered an 8-2 loss to No. 5 Tony Ramos. That ramped up the momentum for the Hawkeyes, who went on to pick up victories at 149 pounds over No. 5 Josh Kindig; 165 pounds over No. 2 Tyler Caldwell; 184 over No. 16-ranked Nolan Boyd; and heavyweight over No. 15 Austin Marsden.

Oklahoma State's only two ranked wrestlers to win Friday were No. 19 Anthony Collica at 141 pounds and No. 2 Chris Perry at 174.

“We got punched in the mouth by a good Iowa team and didn't know how to respond,” OSU coach John Smith said after the No. 5-ranked Cowboys fell to 3-3 in duals. “We just laid down.”

No. 3 Iowa improved to 9-1.
