The Tigers rank 2nd in the MAC rankings for the month of December after a 23-10 dual win over Ohio
Dec. 12, 2013
COLUMBIA, Mo. - The No. 8 Missouri Tigers wrestling team will travel to Cedar Falls, Iowa for the Northern Iowa Open this Saturday, Dec. 14.
Over 30 Tiger grapplers will participate in the annual tournament held on the University of Northern Iowa's campus. Along with the eighth-ranked Tigers, Northern Iowa is ranked tenth in the nation and will host the bracket, and Michigan State and South Dakota State will also compete in the open.
Currently, Missouri and Northern Iowa are the top-two ranked teams in the Mid-American Conference. Last season, the Tigers won the MAC title as a team and captured four individual titles. The Panthers took third place overall in the conference tournament. Both schools were added to the conference in the past two seasons.
The tournament will start at 9 a.m. CT in the UNI-Dome and will run throughout the entire day. Following the UNI Open, the Tigers will take a two-week hiatus before returning on Wednesday, Jan. 1, 2014 for the Southern Scuffle in Chattanooga, Tenn. Missouri took third place in the highly-touted Scuffle last year and will compete again in the two-day tournament to ring in the new year. The team will resume dual play later in the month of January.
